Dental Crowns and Bridges in Wake Forest, NC

Accidents and gum disease can leave you with a less than perfect smile. It can be frustrating to lose a tooth after sustaining an unexpected injury or a sudden infection—you may feel self-conscious and embarrassed. With help from our experienced dentists, you can explore safe and effective dental techniques that restore your smile to its original fullness. No matter what procedure you choose, you can trust our experience and skill to provide you with the cosmetic improvement you want.

Dental crowns and bridges can help to fill any holes or gaps present in your grin. During your comprehensive evaluation, a member of our team will look at problem areas in your mouth to determine whether ceramic dental crowns or porcelain dental crowns alone can amend your issue, or if tooth bridges are better choices for your teeth. We specialize in Maryland bonded bridges, named for the state in which this technique originated.

Thanks to our extensive experience with dental restoration treatments, our team is able to use a variety of techniques to replace missing teeth or conceal imperfections. However, we know that not every treatment is right for every patient. That's why we take time to evaluate your mouth's condition, walk you through your options, and provide our professional recommendation for your best oral health. Enjoy a consultation with our team to learn which treatment is right for you.

Learn About Ceramic & Porcelain Dental Crowns

The purpose of a dental crown is to reinforce your teeth and stop damage that can cause cracks and breaks. To ensure your new crown fits tightly over your existing teeth, our team makes a mold of your tooth during your visit. Using this mold, we create a crown designed to fit comfortably in your mouth; then, we cement it onto your existing tooth. Two lifelike materials are available for this process: ceramic and porcelain.

Ceramic dental crowns are semitransparent and match the natural color of your teeth admirably. Most ceramic crowns last for a few years, and are typically better suited for people with small spaces between their teeth. Depending on your goals for your smile, ceramic may or may not be a better choice than porcelain. Talk to our dentists to learn whether ceramic dental crowns are right for you.

Thanks to modern advances in dental technology, porcelain dental crowns are sturdier and longer lasting than ever. Today, our dentists are able to create crowns consisting of nothing but porcelain and bond them directly to your teeth. Thanks to its translucency and natural coloring, porcelain is a great choice for patients looking to cover teeth towards the fronts of their mouths. Choose porcelain dental crowns when creating a lifelike replica of your current teeth is your priority.

What Are Maryland Bonded Bridges?

Though crowns offer relatively fast and easy solutions for cracked, worn, and broken teeth, missing teeth require somewhat more attention. Professionally installed tooth bridges can "bridge" the space left behind by a missing tooth, thus restoring the natural structure, form, and function of your mouth. Our dentists are able to install many kinds of tooth bridges for clients concerned about their smiles' function and appearance.

If you're concerned about the gap in your teeth, but worried about the effects of dental implants on your weak gums, a dental bridge is the perfect alternative. A dental bridge consists of two crowns with a false tooth in the middle. Before fitting the bridge itself, your dentist will affix teeth crowns to the teeth that surround the gap. The false tooth is held in place by these crowns, effectively bridging the empty space in your smile.

If you have gaps in your smile, consider opting for Maryland bonded bridges from our dentist. This term refers to a bridge technique developed by dentists in Maryland and involves creating a metal framework onto which a false tooth is glued. After creating this device, our dentists will attach the "wings" of the metal framework to the teeth on either side of your gap.
