Lombard Dental Crowns and Bridges
Stronger Teeth With Dental Restorations
Dental crowns, or “caps” are tooth-like coverings that fully encapsulate the tooth to strengthen, restore, or improve the appearance of your existing tooth and make it easier to eat, speak, and smile confidently again. Used for a wide variety of purposes, dental crowns are often used to support teeth where the structure of the tooth is not sufficient to support a filling, where the tooth cracked or broken, or when a bridge is required.
Dental Crowns Are Changing the Lives of Many of Our Patients
A dental bridge is often used when one or more teeth are missing. It can effectively replace a missing tooth or teeth by securing the new tooth in place with the use of crowns secured to neighboring teeth to “bridge” the new tooth into place. Once placed, dental bridges can last anywhere from 5 to 15 years and longer with a good regular dental hygiene routine and six month visits to your dentist. At Brett Blacher DDS, we don’t believe your smile should hide from a missing tooth or that eating your favorite foods should feel like a challenge. When you come to us at your next appointment, we’ll help you rejuvenate your smile and feel confident again.
Take Care of Your Dental Crowns!
Good dental hygiene makes a smile last.
Dental crowns can be as strong or stronger than regular teeth, but we recommend regular brushing and flossing twice daily to keep them in their best shape for many years! To find out more about your dental health and common dental related questions, visit our patient resources!
Don’t Wait on Missing Teeth
Losing a permanent tooth can cause serious problems for your remaining teeth, who may shift and rotate to fill the empty space. When this happens, uneven pressure is put on your bite, your face shape may change, and even your chance for gum disease and future tooth loss accelerates. If you have a question about how tooth loss may be affecting your dental condition and current health, contact our staff at 630-916-0701 for a consultation.
After the Procedure
When most adults over the age of 35 have lost at least one adult tooth in their lives, crowns and bridges have become a simple way for patients to discretely restore their smiles without needing a more complicated procedure such as dental implants or having to look into getting dentures. If you’re thinking about the benefits involved in restoring your smile back to its natural healthy radiance, consider the benefits of dental crowns and bridges:
- Restores and maintains your natural bite and smile
- Prevents existing teeth from shifting into empty spaces
- Corrects unnatural stress placement on other teeth
- Prevents shifting and rotating of adjacent teeth
- Reduces increased risk of gum disease from missing teeth
- Chewing, speaking, and smiling may feel normal and healthy again
If you want to finally take the first step towards getting your smile back, make an appointment with us at 630-916-0701.
