CROWNS & BRIDGES

It can be greatly concerning when a tooth becomes lost or damaged. The problem can destroy a beautiful smile, and it can make simple activities like chewing and speaking a major chore. To combat this issue, Siesta Village Dentistry offers dental crowns and bridges that look natural and provide outstanding functionality. After you receive a dental crown or bridgework, you will surely be impressed with your beautifully restored smile.

Our practice provides porcelain crowns and traditional bridges.

Porcelain Crowns

Placed over a damaged tooth or on a dental implant, a crown is a tooth-shaped restoration that provides a person with the appearance and function of a healthy tooth. Most dental crowns function as a “cap” for an existing tooth that has experienced a large amount of damage. In this case, the crown will strengthen and protect the injured tooth so that it can perform needed tasks, such as chewing. However, it is also possible to apply dental crowns on top of implants so that they can effectively replace missing teeth. Crowns may also be placed on natural teeth to support a dental bridge which replaces a missing tooth. At Siesta Village Dentistry, we are proud to feature dental crowns built from porcelain, a material that is highly regarded for its natural appearance and great performance.

There are many applications that dental crowns offer, including:

  • Strengthening damaged teeth
  • Protecting teeth after a root canal
  • Improving tooth function
  • Adjusting tooth appearance
  • Correcting misshapen teeth
  • Supporting dental bridges
  • Strengthening damaged teeth
  • Protecting teeth after a root canal
  • Improving tooth function
  • Adjusting tooth appearance
  • Correcting misshapen teeth
  • Supporting dental bridges

Our dental crowns are all custom-built to provide a natural, pleasing look that blends in with the patient’s existing teeth. The first step when applying the crown is to either prepare the existing tooth to receive the crown or to install a dental implant for the crown to be applied. If the crown is being installed on top of an existing tooth, we will shave off a small amount of tooth enamel so that the new crown can fit properly. To ensure that the crown remains secure, a strong dental adhesive will be used during application. Patients who have received dental crowns should make sure to take care of the restoration so that the crown lasts for many years to follow.

Traditional Bridges

Siesta Village Dentistry offers custom-built bridges that provide natural-looking replacement teeth for patients who have lost one or more original teeth. After a bridge has been applied, it will offer both the function and appearance of strong, healthy teeth, and it will fill in the gap that was present before. Our traditional bridges work by using dental crowns that are applied over the adjacent teeth and which will hold the bridge steady. The middle of the bridge will be one or more replacement teeth that will occupy the sites of the missing teeth.

Suffering from a lost or damaged tooth is never easy, but the dedicated team at Siesta Village Dentistry can help you get through the experience with a top-quality restoration.
