Prosthetic dentistry deals with restoration or replacement of teeth. This covers crowns, bridges, dentures, partial dentures, and implants. All our crowns, bridges, partials and dentures are custom made to give our patients the most life-like look as possible.
Crowns are dental restorations that cap the natural tooth or dental implant. Crowns are placed when significant amount of tooth structure is lost due to decay or fracture of the tooth. Crowns hold the tooth together to prevent further damage to the tooth. We do porcelain crowns that offer the best natural color match to the natural teeth. On many of the back molars that do not show cosmetically we use gold crowns, or porcelain if preferred.
Bridges are fixed dental prosthesis placed when there are one or more missing teeth to prevent the adjacent teeth from tilting. It is cemented or bonded to supporting teeth or implants adjacent to the space. Bridges are also known as fixed partial dentures. Dental bridging is the process of bridging missing teeth gaps between healthy teeth.
Dentures and Partial Dentures are used to replace teeth that are no longer restorable. Full Dentures replace all of the teeth and Partial Dentures replace multiple teeth that are missing. Both of these are removable by the patient.
