Crowns & Bridges
Here at Dr. Shah Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, we are proud to offer porcelain crowns and caps for our patients. Crowns can be made from a variety of materials including zirconia, gold and other combinations.
Getting porcelain crowns is the best way to have a very natural looking smile. They are used when simply filling in a tooth is not an option. There are times when they decay is so bad that we just have to use a porcelain crown. We also use them with severely damaged teeth or teeth that have already had multiple fillings.
Crowns are attached right to your teeth so that they can function, even when you bite something really hard! There are several types of crowns so it is important to discuss which type is best for you with your dentist.
Bridges can solve the issue of missing teeth. Similar to dentures, bridges replace gaps in your smile with artificial teeth. Bridges can be made from a variety of materials including porcelain, gold, and alloys.
Bridges can be removable or fixed. Removable bridges can be taken out and cleaned by patients, whereas fixed bridges have to be removed by a dentist. Bridges can be implanted to the jaw or under the gums. With so many options, it is important to consult with your dentist about which type of bridge is best for you.
