Dental Crown & Bridge – Fort Lauderdale
Modern dental crowns and bridges represent a true marriage between restorative dentistry and cosmetic dentistry. Because our Fort Lauderdale practice uses only the finest materials, including porcelain of the highest quality and high noble metal, such as gold, in our dental restorations, you can be assured that your restored smile will be as durable as it is aesthetically pleasing.
Dental crowns are used to restore teeth that are weakened, cracked, badly discolored, decaying, or otherwise damaged to their original strength and appearance. Injury or tooth loss may be caused by any number of factors including environmental, hereditary, disease, decay or trauma. If you are exploring restorative and cosmetic dental services, the Fort Lauderdale Dental Crown and Bridge specialists at Dr. Berger’s dental practice can help. Custom crafted from all porcelain or porcelain fused to a high noble metal, our dental crowns are designed to fit over existing teeth, providing support while blending in seamlessly with surrounding natural teeth. Get in touch with our Fort Lauderdale dental office today to learn whether yo may be a good fit for dental crowns & bridges.
A dental crown is an oral prosthetic which fully encapsulates the tooth or dental implant down to the gumline level. Both dental crowns & bridges are extremely effective as a cosmetic and restorative dentistry treatment and can be used to treat:
- Missing teeth extracted to preserve oral health
- Broken teeth due to trauma
- Structurally compromised teeth
- Teeth with large portions of decay
- Patients who have had root canal therapy or endodontic therapy
During the initial dental crown consultation, Dr. Berger will perform an examination to outline a treatment plan specifically for you.
Dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth, as well as teeth that need to be extracted because they cannot be salvaged through root canal therapy. Bridges are also used to straighten teeth and close unsightly spaces. Traditional fixed bridges are comprised of an artificial tooth or teeth supported on either side by a porcelain crown or a porcelain fused to high noble metal crown. These crowns are then affixed to the natural teeth adjacent to the space where teeth are missing so that the artificial tooth or teeth neatly fill this space.
Because Dr. Berger uses her finely honed aesthetic sensibilities to customize tooth restorations, you can rest assured that your new teeth will be entirely natural looking, giving you a smile that is as beautiful as it is healthy. To ensure the most secure and realistic results possible, please inquire about how crowns and bridges can be supported by dental implants.
With proper care, a dental crown or bridge can last for years. Care for your dental crown the same way you would your natural teeth with periodic checkups and cleanings.
