A dental crown or dental bridge from 38th Street Dental can restore a comprised tooth or address tooth loss. When developing a custom dental restoration, Drs. Tasch and Meek use trusted dental laboratories to fabricate crowns and bridges. This allows our dentists to provide patients with the strongest and most lifelike results.View transcript
A crown is a dental restoration that's used to restore fractured or broken teeth. Dental crowns are a way that we can restore broken or fractured teeth. Many times before a tooth receives a crown it will have a filling. Large fillings weaken teeth, and oftentimes cusps will break or teeth will develop hairline fractures. And crowns are a way to reinforce the tooth and restore function. Bridge is a dental restoration that's utilized to replace one or more missing teeth. One way to think of a bridge is two crowns that are connected together by artificial teeth that kind of float over or hover over the gum tissue. Dr. Meek and I use dental laboratories to fabricate our crowns instead of fabricating them in-house because we feel like we can provide our patients with a superior product. Crowns that come out of dental laboratories are much stronger than what can often be created in a smaller dental office setting. The other aspect of using a dental laboratory is the ability to deliver a more aesthetic result.
