Crowns & Bridges
Crowns are a type of dental restoration which, when cemented into place, fully cover that portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line. Other dental restorations fill in or cover over just a portion of a tooth. Since dental crowns encase the entire visible aspect of a tooth, a dental crown effectively becomes the tooth's new outer surface.
Consult Garden City Dental. A crown may rebuild your broken or decayed tooth, giving it new strength while enhancing your appearance. Crowns can be made out of porcelain ceramic, gold alloy or a combination of both. Dental crowns are often referred to as "dental caps."
Are you missing teeth and having trouble speaking or chewing, or straining when biting food? Bridges may be the ideal procedure to help make your mouth healthy and beautiful again. Bridges literally “bridge” gaps between teeth by filling them with strong, natural-looking artificial teeth. Bridges are semi-permanent – they can only be removed by a dentist – and are comfortable and proven to strengthen teeth.
