Seattle Capital Hill Dentist is based in Seattle, Washington and offers dental crown and bridge treatments. Both crowns and most bridges are prosthetic devices that are fixed. These devices are cemented in to position on to teeth or implants. These dental restoration procedures will be the ideal solution to brighten up your smile.
A crown is effectively used to cover or cap a tooth that has been subject to significant damage. Or even if you’re missing teeth, our oral health specialists believe the crown procedure can be used to fill in the gaps and thereby improve and enhance the overall appearance of your teeth. It also plays a functional role in the biting and chewing of food. There are many benefits to choosing this procedure such as improved appearance of teeth by shaping and aligning it. In addition to this, it strengthens the teeth. You have the option of choosing the colour of your crown which ranges from gold, or other metal-based alloys, acrylic, ceramic or the natural colour of your teeth.
Our dentists recommend this for the following reasons:
- Attach a Dental Bridge
- Offer Protection to a Weak Tooth
- Restore a Tooth That Has Been Fractured
- Act as a Cover to an Already-Present Implant
- Cover a Tooth That is Improperly Shaped and/or Discolored
- Provide a Cover to a Tooth Following Treatment of the Root Canal
Bridges are most often used to fill in the gaps that remain when teeth are missing. Usually when there is a gap left by missing teeth, the surrounding teeth may shift causing a bad bite and the imbalance caused by the gap can sometimes result in severe oral health problems such as TMJ disorder and gum disease. This is why it’s crucial to get it treated. In this procedure, bridges are cemented to the teeth or implant in the mouth. The present teeth, or abutments, act as an anchor for the bridge and are usually covered with crowns. A replacement tooth called a ‘pontic’ is then attached to the crowns. After considering certain factors, the dentist will help you select the best material for this, of which there are many. Some factors that are taken into consideration are the position of the bridge, the missing or damaged tooth’s function and how aesthetically appealing it will be.
A dental veneer is a popular choice for worn down, chipped, crooked or gapped teeth without the use of orthodontics. They are extremely thin shells that adhere to teeth. It improves the appearance of the tooth by altering its length, size, shape and color. This can serve as the ideal solution for patients who don’t require much dental work. A veneer can be more aesthetically pleasing than a dental implant. There are different kinds of veneer available, and our specialists will help you consider the options based on what suits your needs.
