Traditional Dental Crowns & Bridges in Boston, MA
One of the best things you can do for your smile is to make sure it’s stable and complete. If you have dental concerns that effect either your smile’s durability or are facing tooth loss, you may need to consider getting dental crowns from our office. Our dental crowns are built to last and can provide multiple tooth replacements by creating bridges.
Understanding Dental Crowns & Bridges
Our office has used crowns and bridges for years and years to help restore the health of damaged teeth. Why? Simply because they actually work. Sometimes they can be confused because they are similar treatments used for different purposes.
Dental Crowns Work to Strengthen Damaged Teeth
Thin, tooth-shaped coverings expertly crafted right in our Boston office, dental crowns are customized and meticulously crafted to fit right over the damaged tooth to instantly restore its form and function.
Dental crowns can be used to solve a number of tooth issues, including:
- Holding pieces of a broken tooth together.
- Restoring broken or worn teeth from damage.
- Restoring severely decayed teeth to healthy, strong teeth.
- Covering discolored teeth for a beautiful makeover.
- Anchoring a series of dental crowns to create a dental bridge.
Typically, when you get a dental crown or bridge, you can expect to simply visit our office a couple times. Within your few visits, we can prepare for, create and place your dental restorations. That’s right. You’ll experience a much more convenient, comfortable, and faster dental restoration process when you visit the experts in our office.
Dental Bridges Work to Replace Multiple Teeth
While crowns are used to cover an existing tooth, you can use dental bridges to replace consecutive missing teeth.
A dental bridge is made up of a series of dental crowns that are secured to the natural tooth on either side of the gap. Dental crowns complete the chain on both sides and are bonded to your natural teeth to hold your restorations in place. As you probably guessed, this creates an actual bridge between the teeth. Your dentist is here to help you experience optimal oral health, and you can’t do that with missing teeth!
Maintaining Your Dental Work
Once you’ve had your tooth restored with a beautiful crown or bridge from our office, it’s just as important as ever for you to maintain excellent oral hygiene—don’t worry—we’re here to help! Simple brushing, flossing, and visiting your local dentist in Boston is all it takes to help you dental crows and/or bridges last.
