Tooth Crown Dentistry In Northwest Las Vegas
Do you have teeth that are weak, broken, or missing? Our Northwest Las Vegas dentists provide their patients with restorative dentistry methods that can fix countless current problems while preventing future problems too. The most common restorative dentistry methods we use include porcelain crowns and dental bridges.
Cap It With a Tooth Crown
Dental crowns, or caps, are tooth-shaped appliances that cover the entire visible portion of a tooth. Porcelain crowns can fix both cosmetic and functional dental issues. If you have a problem tooth that is:
- Worn down
Then you may be interested in capping that tooth with a state-of-the-art tooth crown.
Dental crowns can also strengthen and improve the appearance of teeth. Porcelain crowns will fortify the teeth so that they can function the way they should. A tooth crown may be crafted out of metal materials if they are near the back of your mouth, but if the problem teeth are towards the front of the mouth, our dentists may recommend porcelain crowns. These porcelain crowns will give your tooth or teeth a realistic and full appearance.
Bridge the Gap: Dental Bridges
Dental bridges are commonly used to replace missing teeth. Dental bridges are formed by a pontic, or replacement tooth, and anchors. The anchors can be dental implants or two dental crowns. The dental crowns or implants are placed on either side of the gap, and the pontic bridges the gap with beautiful replacement teeth.
Missing teeth can cause problems like shifting, crooked teeth and a bad bite, so it is important to see what our dentists suggest for tooth replacement. Dental bridges will keep your smile straight, attractive, and functional.
