A bright and healthy smile is a valuable asset that leaves a lasting impression on others. However, dental issues such as decay, damage, or missing teeth can diminish the beauty and functionality of our smiles. Thankfully, modern dentistry offers practical solutions to address these concerns, and two of the most popular restorative options are dental crowns and bridges. At The Dental Centre, dental crowns and bridges are an invaluable combination that empowers individuals to reclaim their smiles and oral health. Their ability to strengthen, protect, and replace missing teeth, crowns, and bridges provide functional and aesthetic benefits.

Dental Crowns 

Dental crowns, also known as dental caps, are versatile restorations that cover a damaged or weakened tooth, providing strength, protection, and a natural appearance. Dental crowns are custom-crafted to fit perfectly over the prepared tooth at The Dental Centre, made from materials like porcelain, ceramic, metal, or a combination. Their tooth-shaped design encases the entire visible portion of the tooth above the gum line, restoring its functionality and appearance.

The Benefits of Dental Crowns 

  • Dental crowns support weak or fractured teeth, preventing further damage and potential loss.
  • By restoring the shape and function of damaged teeth, crowns enable comfortable biting, chewing, and speaking.
  • With porcelain or ceramic crowns, patients can enjoy a seamless blend with their natural teeth, creating a beautifully uniform smile.
  • Dental crowns made from high-quality materials can withstand the forces of daily wear and can last for many years with proper care.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are an excellent solution for replacing one or more missing teeth. As the name suggests, a dental bridge "bridges" the gap left by missing teeth, anchored securely by dental crowns placed on the neighboring teeth. The false teeth, known as pontics, are connected to the crowns, creating a stable and functional restoration.

The Advantages of Dental Bridges

  • Dental bridges fill the gaps left by missing teeth, enhancing the appearance of the smile and preventing neighboring teeth from shifting.
  • Patients can regain their ability to chew and speak comfortably with dental bridges, just like natural teeth.
  • Missing teeth can lead to the sagging of facial muscles and changes in facial structure. Dental bridges help maintain the natural shape of the face.
  • Dental bridges prevent neighboring teeth from shifting into the gap, which can cause misalignment issues.

Dental crowns and bridges are powerful restorative solutions that transform smiles, improve oral health, and rebuild self-confidence. Visit The Dental Centre at 4301 W WILLIAM CANNON DR Building B #240, Austin, TX 78749, or call (512) 892-7800 to schedule an appointment.
