If you have broken, missing or decayed teeth or very large fillings, dental crowns and bridges are the ideal restorative dental procedure for you. Crowns are also used as protective coverings for teeth that have undergone root canal treatment.
Porcelain-based tooth restorations provide a natural look and feel to the teeth as they blend in with the rest of your smile. At Sunny Isles Dental, Dr. George Georgiev and his team carefully match the color of the porcelain material to your tooth enamel, so that your smile looks perfectly natural.
A crown is a cap, the same shape as your tooth, used to protect the tooth structure. Unlike fillings, a crown covers the complete surface of the tooth, thereby acting as a protective cap for weak or compromised tooth enamels. Porcelain replicates the shiny look of teeth, giving a more natural appearance.
Bridges are used to fill gaps between one or more missing teeth. A bridge is identical to three or four crowns fused together. It is supported by the healthy teeth on both sides of the area where the bridge has been installed, with false crowns between them. Apart from filling tooth gaps, bridges also help in maintaining facial shape and in preventing other teeth from drifting into the gap caused by missing teeth.
