Dental Crowns and Bridges
When you think about the hard work our teeth do everyday, it is amazing that they don’t sustain more damage than they do! From chewing, speaking, and even habits such as clenching and grinding, our teeth take a beating every day.
Enamel is the hardest substance in the human body, but even it is not indestructible. Biting into something hard, clenching, grinding, and trauma can all cause wear and damage to our teeth. That is why having the appropriate restoration is essential to the health and longevity of your smile.
Custom Porcelain Dental Crowns
When you experience a cracked or damaged tooth, our dentists will do their very best to save it because that is usually the best way to protect your oral health. Keeping your natural teeth is often the most affordable way to keep your smile healthy.
At our Modesto, CA dental office, we restore broken and cracked teeth with custom porcelain crowns. Crowns are a protective restoration that completely covers your tooth above the gum line. Not only do crowns make your tooth look healthy, but they also provide protection by absorbing some of the force from chewing and grinding. They keep your tooth together and prevent splitting, which may require an extraction.
When we create your crown, we will match it to your existing teeth, so you don’t have to worry about your dentistry leaving a negative mark on your smile.
Same-Day Crowns with CEREC Technology
At our Modesto, CA dental office, we utilize the latest in CAD/CAM technology to create your crowns in our office in one visit. This will reduce the number of appointments necessary to receive your final restoration.
With CEREC, we utilize digital impressions that transfer information to our software. Our software communicates with our state-of-the-art milling machine that will create your crown to our exact specifications all while you are in our office. You will not need to wait for the lab to create your crown or run the risk of having an inaccurate impression that can slow down your procedure.
Fixed Dental Bridges
While we do everything within our power to save your natural teeth, sometimes even the best efforts are not enough. When you lose a tooth, we offer tooth replacement options for every budget and lifestyle.
One of the most reliable ways to fill the gap in your smile is with a fixed dental bridge. We use your adjacent teeth to anchor a porcelain tooth in the gap in your smile. This not only completes your smile, but also keeps your remaining teeth from drifting or moving toward the gap.
Having a space holder, such as a bridge, to keep your teeth in place protects your smile and your overall bite.
Just like our dental crowns, we can use CEREC Technology to create your dental bridge in just one visit, making it convenient to get the care you need to look and feel your best.
