Mend Damaged Teeth With Dental Crowns & Bridges in Boynton Beach
Dental crowns and bridges are two of the most versatile treatments we offer in our Boynton Beach, FL dentist office. There are a few kinds of damage they can’t repair! Among the things we can do with these versatile dental restorations:
Somebody who has a large, extensive filling, when there's almost no tooth structure, the fillings, a lot of times, will start to break down and you need to do full coverage crown where you're restoring the whole tooth, and you're restoring the shrink to it because—what happens is when the filling gets so big, there's less and less tooth structure, so then it tends to break easily, and you can chip and crack. If it's bad enough, you can actually crack a tooth—we end up losing a tooth. When we do a crown, it strengthens the tooth and restores it. The materials are very strong right now, so it’s strong or stronger than the natural tooth we're fixing.
Crowns are connected and you can replace those with a fake tooth in there and those are very stable, so you don't have to have anything removable—it’s cemented in place. The advantage of that is it’s more like your natural tooth. The best way to replace a missing tooth right now is with implants because you're not touching any other tooth around it, so you're just placing the implant and you put a crown on top of that. Then it's just like you have your natural tooth back again.
- Replace a missing tooth by attaching a crown to a dental implant
- Use crowns to support a dental bridge
- Repair cracked or even broken teeth
- Improve your smile’s look by hiding stains or misshapen teeth
- Fix a cavity that is too large for a tooth filling
- Make it possible for you to chew your food in comfort
Our crowns and bridges are made of porcelain and sturdy BruxZir zirconia, so they’ll last for many years. To see if one of these restorative dental treatments is right for you, call (561) 737-8559.
Choose From Two Types of Bridges
You can choose from two types of bridges at Hugh B. Rosenblatt, DMD, PA:
- Dental bridges with implants– Attaching your bridge to implants gives you a superior feel and stability, and we won’t have to modify your healthy teeth.
- Fixed dental bridges– Use dental crowns to secure your bridge. Two crowns are placed over your natural teeth surrounding the gap. These are attached to another crown that fills the gap left by your missing tooth.
Either way, you’ll have a new smile and can live confidently knowing your teeth will stay in place. Unlike dentures, you never need to remove a bridge for cleaning!
We Make It Convenient to Get a Crown
A dental crown procedure usually requires just two visits to our Boynton Beach, FL dentist office. Dr. Rosenblatt removes a small amount of your tooth enamel to prepare your tooth. Then he takes an impression that’s used to make your custom crown. He also gives you a temporary crown to wear during the time it takes our off-site partner to make your dental restoration.
When your crown arrives, you return to our office, so Dr. Rosenblatt can bond it over your tooth. It protects your tooth from further damage and gives you back the function that was lost. You won’t find it tough to schedule two appointments, thanks to our extended hours. We’re open until 7 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays, and we open at 7:30 a.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
