What is a Dental Crown?
The portion of your tooth above the surface area of the gums is called the crown. A dental crown is an artificial cap or covering that can be used to restore a tooth’s shape and protect the tooth root, after a tooth has become damaged or decayed. Using a dental crown, we can save teeth that would normally need to be extracted, and keep your smile lasting and healthy.
Our dental crowns are made with beautiful, high quality porcelain materials that perfectly mimic your natural tooth’s color and translucence. Each crown is made specifically for each patient for optimal occlusion and comfort. We create our crowns with state-of-the-art CEREC technology. Normally, crown procedures take two or more appointments. With CEREC technology, our team at Rochester Hills Dental can create beautiful, perfect porcelain crowns right here in our office.
What is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is a restorative dental appliance that can fill the gap left by a missing tooth, or teeth. Dental bridges use a series of beautifully crafted porcelain crowns to bridge the hole and to provide a perfect crown replacement. Patients choose dental bridges because they look natural and allow patients to share a full smile again. Dental bridges are an affordable and effective means to replace a missing tooth after an accident or other dental tragedy.
