Dental Crowns and bridges are some of the most popular options to restore your broken or missing teeth. While they each have slightly different applications, they are both reliable options for repairing your smile. If you are interested in crowns or bridges contact Dr. Colin Osborne to see if crowns or bridges can benefit you. Those who are missing teeth should visit Dr. Osborne in Lumberton, NC, to restore their smile and regain their confidence.
What are Dental Crowns?
A dental crown is an artificial cap that covers the tooth above the gums. Crowns are used for partially broken or decaying teeth. They can also be used as a cap for dental implants to replace a missing tooth. Crowns are strong and beneficial because they can be made of zirconia or porcelain. Overall, crowns are cost-effective options to preserve your teeth. They are less cumbersome than dentures and very versatile, depending on the type of tooth injury you have. If you have minor tooth damage ask Dr. Osborne if a crown is right for you.
What are Dental Bridges?
Dental bridges are artificial replacements used to fully replace multiple teeth. They use two crowns connected by a "bridge" in your mouth. The crowns are cemented or bonded to your existing teeth. Replacement teeth cover the space between the caps where the teeth are missing to create a seamless smile. Your Lumberton dentist will create an impression of your teeth to match your bite and help the bridge stay in place. Bridges are a durable option to replace your teeth and they will help you smile, eat, and talk, naturally again.
Dental crowns and bridges are effective options for repairing missing or decaying teeth. They are both a trusted method for solving common dental issues.
