Crowns are used to repair teeth that have been severely damaged or discolored. Crowns use the support structure of the existing teeth and are fixed over the original tooth to exactly match the rest of your teeth. Ceramic crowns are made using scans of the inside of the mouth, to ensure that each crown is custom fitted. While not as strong as metal crowns or implants, ceramic crowns are quite strong and should last for several years.
Bridges consist of a row of several ceramic false teeth, supported by a titanium frame that sits in the cavity between teeth like a retainer. Bridges made of porcelain false teeth are able to look remarkably like real teeth, and many people who wear them claim they can’t tell the difference. If cleaned and properly taken care of, your porcelain bridge should last you a lifetime as an adult. Don’t hesitate to call if you have any questions about this procedure.schedule an appointment today at 561.276.6684
