Your teeth are important for more than just a beautiful smile. They also support your oral health and functions. It’s essential they stay strong and healthy for a lifetime. If you have damaged or missing teeth, we can restore your smile back to its previous state using crowns or bridges. Your dentist in Yuba City, Dr. Sekhon uses the latest innovations in dentistry to create restorations that look natural. They will blend in with your remaining teeth, so you can smile, speak, and chew confidently.
A dental crown is a custom-made cap that’s placed over the entire visible surface of a tooth to the gum line. They are often used to treat a tooth with a large area of decay or a significant break. They can also be used along with other treatments as well, like root canal therapy or bridges.
When you picture a crown, you might be envisioning a dark restoration. Although they were typically made of metal, all-ceramic material is used to make crowns because it closely mimics your enamel. When compared to metal restorations, all-ceramic crowns are equally durable to last for a decade or longer with the right aftercare.
Crowns are widely used in restorative and cosmetic dentistry because they offer a variety of benefits, including:
A fixed bridge is the most traditional solution to replace 1 or more missing teeth in a row. An impression of your mouth is taken to recreate the portions of your lost teeth visible above the gum line. It’s held in place by reshaping the adjacent teeth to bond dental crowns over them.
The bridge and crowns are customized to meet your exact specifications to look natural. They’ll restore your ability to smile confidently and chew a variety of foods while also preserving your remaining teeth. With the right care, your bridge can last 7-10 years before needing to be replaced.
In as few as 2 appointments, you can replace your missing teeth with a bridge and crowns. Overall, a fixed bridge provides several advantages, including:
If you have a damaged tooth, you can help save it from an extraction with a dental crown. Maybe you’ve lost a tooth or two over the years? We can replace your missing teeth with a fixed bridge.
