Dental crowns and dental bridges reconstruct damaged or missing teeth, restoring both their ideal function and beauty, while preserving the integrity of natural and healthy teeth.
Broken or badly damaged teeth typically require custom, porcelain dental crowns, aiding in the protection and prevention of additional breakage. When teeth are already missing, dental bridges fill the open space with an artificial, realistic looking tooth. In addition, dental crowns and bridges can also be inserted on top of dental implants to replace single or multiple missing teeth, providing a realistic option that feels and functions like a real smile.
Dental crowns and bridges are fixed restorations, meaning they are securely bonded to teeth or dental implants [link to implants] and are not removable by the patient. Made from strong, natural-looking materials, crowns and bridges are used for different situations, but the ultimate goal of both is to restore function and beauty by improving the shape, appearance, and occlusion of teeth. We offer same-day crowns in our North Canton, Cuyahoga Falls, and Hudson, OH, offices. This E4D digital technology allows us to design and mill custom, realistic dental crowns in as little as one hour, providing our patients with a convenient and personalized experience!
One way we create exceptional experiences for our busy patients is by providing high-quality services that are convenient. Our same-day dental crowns offer this convenience and through our expertise in this E4D technology, we have the capability to cut your treatment time in half, benefiting you in more ways than financially. Combining our cosmetic dentistry expertise and advanced technology of the E4D software, you can leave our office with a brand new, custom dental crown the same day! Unlike conventional methods, we will scan your tooth or teeth, digitally design your new restoration in our 3D software, then create it with our in-house milling machine while you wait in our office. This process eliminates the need for temporaries, unnecessary pain or discomfort, or returning to our office for your final restoration. While only dental crowns are milled in our office, both they and dental bridges provide significant advantages for patients:
Dental crowns “cap” teeth that are chipped, cracked, worn down, or otherwise damaged enough to harm their integrity and strength. Crowns are also used to cover teeth after a root canal or to restore dental implants. Crowns protect and preserve teeth, restore their size and shape, improve their aesthetics, and provide strength and durability for necessary functioning.
Dental bridges are a series of crowns cemented together to “bridge” the gap of a missing tooth. Bridges help return function to the area while preserving the alignment and position of adjacent teeth. Dental bridges also restore aesthetics to the smile by replacing a missing tooth with life-like porcelain materials.
