Restore The Life Back Into Your Smile

Dental crowns and bridges are one of the most common procedures sought out by are patients in Garland, Tx that meet the restorative and esthetic needs you want. Dental crowns and bridges are often seen as part of the same treatment process, but they’re quite different in their purposes. Dental bridges prominently fill in the gaps between your teeth while dental crowns return once damaged teeth back into their natural state. Both dental crowns and bridges restore a state of functionality to a new, healthy smile. As a leading cosmetic dentistry practice, Optima Dentistry not only provides exceptional results for dental crowns and bridges, but we also give you and every single patient a convenient, positive, and life changing experience.

Crowns Rebuild & Resuscitate Damaged Teeth

Dental crowns provide full protection for individual teeth that have been damaged. To solidify that we are committed to the highest quality of materials, we use porcelain based crowns to restore form and high-end cosmetics to teeth. The great thing about porcelain crowns is that they resemble real teeth structure, providing esthetics that rival those of natural teeth. One way porcelain crowns differ from its ceramic crowns counterpart is the durability. They last longer and don’t break as easily as ceramic crowns, giving you a long lasting smile. Dental crowns are best known to restore teeth that are:

  • Broken
  • Cracked
  • Decayed
  • Worn
  • Misshapen
  • Root Canal Treated
  • Implant Restorations

Dental Bridges Restore Biting Fuctionality

Replacing teeth as soon as possible is key in reducing the likelihood of having other teeth shift out of place. Dental bridges fill in the gaps caused by tooth loss. Dental bridges are fabricated by using a series of dental crowns fused into a single appliance, the bridges then connect to the teeth positioned on both sides of the tooth gap, filling the open space and rising naturally above the gum line. Usually dental crowns are made by two or more dental crown units, depending on how many teeth are missing.

Before The Procedure

If you are choosing to get dental bridges or crowns for cosmetic reasons, we recommend that you get a teeth whitening treatment first. At Optima Dentistry, we offer teeth whitening treatments that are easy and affordable compared to other cosmetic dentists in Garland, Tx. We encourage you to get this treatment first since the material that dental bridges and crowns are made up of are bleach and stain resistant. This means if you have a yellow smile, the crowns and bridges will be made in the same color as your teeth. If you have the teeth whitening procedure done beforehand, your dental crowns or bridges will match your new bright smile!

After The Treatment

It is common to experience some tooth sensitivity whenever you get dental restoratives. For this reason, you need to wear a temporary dental crown as you wait for the permanent crown to be created. During the actual procedure, we will utilize sedation dentistry as a preventative measure to ensure you don’t experience any discomfort or pain. After the procedure however, our cosmetic dentist will prescribe you oral pain medication for you to take for a couple of days until you begin to feel better.

The benefit of wearing a crown is the protection of your tooth. Regardless of the previous damage your tooth had, you can proceed to eat and drink whatever you desire without fear or discomfort. This option is best for those individuals who have severe tooth sensitivity, chipped or broken teeth, or have undergone root canal treatment.  Likewise, dental bridges also make it easy for you to eat and drink whatever you want without being constrained by your teeth. In addition to dental crowns and bridges, we also provide dental implants in Garland for those who seek to have a permanent lifetime smile without worrying about getting new cosmetic restorations years later.
