What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps placed on the visible portions of damaged teeth to restore their natural shape, size, strength, and appearance. At Austin Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry, we are proud to offer dental crowns in various materials, including zirconia, for unparalleled function and aesthetics.

Why Would You Require a Dental Crown?

Dental crowns can preserve weak, cracked, or broken teeth, restore severely worn down teeth, and are routinely used to strengthen and protect teeth after root canal therapy. They can also repair teeth with extensive decay and not enough healthy tooth structure remaining to support large fillings.

Dental crowns help restore missing teeth by covering dental implants or holding dental bridges in place. They also offer a cosmetic dentistry solution by closing gaps between teeth, covering severe staining and discoloration that does not respond to traditional teeth whitening, and improving the appearance of misshapen teeth.

What Are Dental Bridges?

Like partial dentures, dental bridges are custom restorations we use to "bridge" spaces created by missing one or several adjacent teeth. A bridge is secured to natural teeth or dental implants on either side of the gap.

Why Would You Require a Dental Bridge?

Leaving a gap in your smile can lead to several oral health complications over time. The neighboring teeth may begin to shift and tilt out of alignment, potentially causing crooked teeth, a crowded mouth, or a bad bite. Moreover, the imbalance created by missing one or more of your teeth can result in periodontal (gum) disease and a painful condition known as temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder.

Dental bridges maintain the gap left by missing teeth, enhancing your oral health and preventing a host of oral health complications. They also allow you to speak clearly and chew with ease. Best of all, your new restoration will restore your youthful, confident smile!

How Should You Care for a Dental Crown or Bridge?

Maintaining meticulous oral hygiene practices will reflect on the health of your natural teeth and the longevity of your restorations. We recommend regular brushing and flossing and visiting Austin Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry for your twice-a-year dental exams and cleanings. Dr. Madeleine will make sure your oral health and your dental work stay in tip-top shape!
