With crown and bridge, we can help those with a variety of tooth damage problems. When a tooth is damaged by can be saved, we can strengthen and rebuild it with a crown, while a bridge can be used to replace missing teeth. Comal Dental realizes that patients from New Braunfels, Texas and surrounding communities need options when it comes to oral healthcare, and that’s why we offer a wide range of restorative dentistry choices.
Crowns are used to repair teeth that have been fractured, treated with root canal therapy, and damaged by large cavities. They can be used to replace large fillings and to hold dental bridges in place, too. These tooth-shaped porcelain caps go over teeth, essentially making the tooth like new again.
Bridges are made of one or more replacement teeth with crowns on either end. The crowns are then placed over neighboring remaining teeth to hold the bridge in place. Unlike partial dentures, bridges are not removable, giving you more confidence in the stability of your tooth replacement.
The key to pleasing dental restorations like crowns and bridges is the use of porcelain. Porcelain can be shaped into tooth replacements and crowns for repair while giving you a natural-looking end result that doesn’t make it obvious you’ve had dental work done. Porcelain closely mimics natural tooth enamel, which leads to greater satisfaction in the end.
