A dental crown or bridge is one of the most common restorative procedures performed in dentistry.
Both are designed to improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile. Our dental office performs both procedures onsite.
DENTAL CROWN PROCEDURE
As the name suggests, a crown is simply a cap or cover for your tooth. Used primarily to strengthen a weak or broken tooth, a dental crown can also protect heavily filled teeth, improve the appearance of discolored teeth, or even help straighten crooked teeth. They are also frequently used after a root canal procedure has been performed.
Our Hutchinson, KS dental office uses a state of the art digital scanner to craft your crown, eliminating the need for uncomfortable, old-fashioned “goop” impressions. By doing this, we ensure a perfect fit and color. We use the strongest materials available, so you walk out of our office feeling confident in your new smile!
During your procedure you will be given a local anesthetic and should not feel any pain or discomfort. If you are anxious about getting your dental crown, ask us about sedation dentistry.
DENTAL BRIDGE PROCEDURE
A great option for replacing a missing tooth or two, a bridge helps connect the teeth on either side of the empty space in your mouth. Our dental office takes great care to perform this procedure in a way that ensures your comfort and successfully restores your smile.
Using a ceramic tooth to fill the empty space and crowns on the teeth on either side, we’ll bond the crowns and ceramic tooth together with a powerful, lasting oral adhesive. Your ceramic tooth and crowns will be carefully crafted using digital scans of your mouth—no uncomfortable “goop” impressions necessary! Ultimately, the shape and color of your bridgework will seamlessly blend with your natural smile.
