Dental Crown & Bridge Treatment Options
Treating a tooth with a dental crown is simple. The initial phase of treatment is performed under local anesthesia, so the area is completely numbed. Dr. Nauman carefully removes all diseased areas of the tooth, and then takes an impression of the altered tooth structure. This mold is used by a dental lab in the fabrication process, creating a crown that will fit well against the opposing teeth, as well as look natural. Before the completion of this initial visit, a temporary crown will be cemented into place to protect the prepared tooth while the permanent crown is being made.
Dental bridges, which contain two dental crowns and an artificial tooth, are created in much the same way. For dental bridges, two teeth are altered to accommodate dental crowns. Impressions are taken to include these teeth, and two temporary crowns are placed. Upon completion, the dental bridge is returned to our office as a single, strong piece that restores function and beauty.
