Improving the health and appearance of your smile with cosmetic crowns and bridges in Centerville
If your teeth are broken, damaged, decaying, or missing, cosmetic crowns and bridges from Alex Bell Dental in Centerville can help you achieve a beautiful and healthy smile. Our team has decades of experience helping our patients restore functionality and beauty to their mouth.
Dental Crowns are thin shells of porcelain that can cover a tooth that needs strengthening due to excessive damage or decay. Our practice uses mercury-free, ceramic crowns to provide our patients with a beautiful, natural-looking, and biocompatible restoration.
Dental bridges are a set of crowns that are fused together to “fill in the gap” of missing teeth. The restoration includes a false tooth with crowns on either side to anchor it into place.
Dental crowns and bridges are completed in two appointments. During the first appointment, your teeth will be prepared for the crown or bridge. Any damaged or decayed material will be removed along with a thin layer of enamel to allow enough room for the crown to be placed. Impressions are then taken so molds can be made and sent to an off-site lab for custom fabrication.
Once your restoration is fabricated and sent to our office, you will come in for your second appointment to have it placed. The teeth receiving the restoration will be cleaned and buffed to allow proper adhesion. Once the fit, color, and shape of the restoration are approved, it will be permanently placed with special dental cement.
We may have you come into our office several weeks after placement of your restoration to make sure you are comfortable with your new crown or bridge.
If you are ready to fix your damaged or decayed teeth, contact Alex Bell Dental today to schedule an appointment. Our office is located at 900 E. Alex Bell Rd. Centerville, OH 45459.
While you may not think a missing or damaged tooth is a problem, the truth is that teeth with flaws or imperfections can be more difficult to clean. This can lead to plaque build-up between the teeth or gums and can put you at an increased risk for gum disease or decay.
