DENTAL CROWNS & BRIDGES IN TAMPA, FL
A dental crown is used to cover a tooth. It’s placed over the tooth like a cap. At New Tampa Smiles in Tampa, FL, our dentist has experience with dental crowns.
Are you looking for a way to replace a missing tooth that can be done in less time than the time required for a dental implant procedure? If so, our dental care team at New Tampa Smiles has the solution: a dental bridge from our multi-specialty dentist near you!
Dental crowns are also commonly used to strengthen and support cracked and weak teeth. These teeth are more likely to break with minimal trauma. By placing a crown over them, we can protect them and extend their lives. Sometimes crowns are done for cosmetic purposes to cover discolored teeth. Finally, dental crowns are almost always placed over teeth that undergo root canal treatments.
It takes about two visits to get a dental crown placed. After placing the crown, we’ll ask you to bite and check for any irregularities. These can easily be sorted out before you leave the office.
When a dental bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth, two crowns will be placed on the teeth adjacent to the gap, and a prosthetic tooth (or teeth) is then placed to create a natural-looking and functional replacement.
There are a variety of materials that our dentist can use in your treatment including all-porcelain, porcelain with a metal base, and all metal, and our dental care team will detail each material option so you’ll have the information you need to make the best choice regarding cost, appearance, and durability.
