Are you concerned unhealthy or damaged teeth are negatively impacting your smile? Do you wish you could target and improve the appearance of specific teeth? Cosmetic crowns and bridges are specifically created or shaped to address a concerning tooth. Discover how these oral prosthetics may benefit you during a consultation with us in West End Dental and Facial Esthetics in Lubbock, TX!
What Are Cosmetic Crowns?
Cosmetic crowns are prosthetic dental devices utilized to cover a damaged tooth. These prosthetics are cemented over a tooth to enhance the general shape or appearance of the tooth. Crowns may also promote better tooth function.
What Are Cosmetic Bridges?
Cosmetic bridges are prosthetic dental devices to address the appearance of one of more damaged or missing teeth. They may be an option to address an imbalanced or imperfect bite. Each prosthetic is adhered over the problematic area.
What Is the Process of Receiving Cosmetic Crowns and Bridges?
Your cosmetic crowns and bridges experience will depend on your unique goals for treatment and your oral health needs. The process may begin with performing a therapeutic or other oral health treatment on the tooth. The tooth may then be reduced in size to provide adequate space for the cover. An impression will be taken of the area to be used to mold the crown or bridge. Once this has been created, it is adhered to the tooth.
Cosmetic crowns and bridges require a series of visits, but the results should be long-lasting. To preserve your results, it is important to continue to practice good oral hygiene habits. You may also want to avoid certain foods. The professionals at our Texas office can provide you with all the information to best care for your crown or bridge.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Cosmetic crowns and bridges may be recommended for individuals who are unhappy with the current appearance of their smile. It is important to keep in mind these treatments do not necessarily address health concerns of teeth. However, they may be performed in addition to oral healthcare treatments to promote a healthy smile.
Most generally healthy individuals seeking a treatment to cover or improve the appearance of a tooth may qualify as potential candidates for these dental procedures. To best determine if these procedures are right for you, we recommend a consultation with our professional staff in Lubbock. During your visit, they will examine your teeth, discuss your concerns, and provide you with further information about your treatment options.
