When teeth become damaged, lose function, or are missing, dental crowns and dental bridges are common restoration options for many patients. These lifelike tooth restorations are commonly used for both cosmetic dentistry when a tooth is missing or cracked and to restore function to the mouth by capping a tooth that received extensive treatment, allowing it to be used normally again. Additionally, if you are missing several teeth in a row, your facial appearance may change and it can be difficult to eat. By fusing multiple dental crowns together, Dr. Rebecca Bork can create a bridge that fills in the gap and provides a beautiful, natural appearance. Dr. Bork is highly experienced in designing bridges and dental crowns in Allen, TX, as well as placing them within your mouth for optimal results.
Dental crowns are a very common restoration and have many different uses and functions. We can provide you with high-quality dental crowns that look and function just like your natural teeth. If you have a cracked, chipped, or otherwise damaged tooth, a dental crown can be placed over the tooth to protect it from further harm, restore color and appearance, and allow you to use it as normal without discomfort. We also commonly use crowns to restore a tooth after a root canal has been performed. This protects the tooth structure and the treated area from further damage. When you have dental implants placed, Dr. Bork can create a dental crown to look like your natural teeth. This will cover the abutment piece of an implant and provide all the chewing functionality and aesthetic appearance you have been missing.
If you are missing several teeth in a row, dental bridges can span the gap of missing teeth and provide you with form and function again. A bridge is a collection of dental crowns that are attached together to form one solid restoration piece. Usually attached to abutment teeth, bridges can prevent the shifting of surrounding teeth into the area where teeth are missing. You will be able to bite and chew with dental bridges as you normal would and the teeth will look natural in your smile. Many patients choose this as an option before getting dental implants placed.
In order to custom create these crowns and bridges to your smile, we take digital impressions of your teeth and bite. Using our state-of-the-art TRIOS® 3Shape scanner, we can capture the form of your jaw and bite without the need for goopy, gag-inducing impressions. We will use this detailed image to design and create your dental crown or bridge restoration, ensuring a lifelike appearance and comfortable fit. Once created, Dr. Bork will place the restoration in your mouth, restoring your bite, structure and appearance of your smile.
With over 13 years of dental experience, Dr. Bork ensures that your bite will feel normal and your smile will look seamless with the placement of your crowns or bridge.
