At Regency Family Dental, we provide a variety of innovative, stable, long-lasting and aesthetically pleasing restoration options for your teeth.
Crowns and bridges are one of the most commonly used restoration options and have been popular and trusted in the dental care world for years. With advancements in modern dentistry, crowns and bridges are much stronger and more life-like than ever. Our quality crowns and bridges offer a superior fit and look like beautiful, natural teeth.
Crowns can be used to restore and protect a single damaged or decayed tooth or to replace a missing tooth. They cover the tooth structure like a cap that protects it from further damage. They are great for use over teeth that are weak due to a root canal infection, or have very large fillings, and are a lasting solution which helps to retain a tooth that would otherwise be lost. In the case of a missing tooth, a crown can be attached to dental implant making it a stable and functional replacement option.
A dental bridge is one or more prosthetic teeth which can fill the gap created by several missing teeth in a row. A bridge is generally supported by healthy teeth on either side and is attached to the natural teeth using dental crowns.
Crowns and bridges are custom-made in a dental laboratory using carefully taken impressions of your existing teeth. A key factor in creating these restorations is that their fit should be the same as that of the tooth or teeth that they are meant to replace. A part of an existing tooth structure may need to be ground down for a crown to fit correctly. The same is true for a bridge, where the anchoring teeth need preparation to help in installing the bridge.
