For patients who have badly cracked or chipped teeth or extensive tooth decay, porcelain crowns may be the best solution. Our porcelain crowns are caps that are placed over damaged or decayed teeth to restore them to their original shape, size, and function with a natural look and feel. Crowns are also useful for affixing dental bridges that comfortably and securely “bridge the gap” created by a missing tooth. We use the most advanced porcelain materials available.
Typically, dental crowns can be placed in as few as two visits, making them a convenient option for patients who need a quick, affordable and the best possible solution for missing or damaged teeth.
- 1st Step: First, our dentist will trim down your affected tooth and take an impression of your smile.
- 2nd Step: After creating a custom crown, our dentist will bond the dental crown to the prepared tooth, ensuring it integrates with perfectly. With proper dental hygiene, your porcelain crown can last many years.
A bridge is a fixed dental restoration (a fixed dental prosthesis) used to replace a missing tooth (or several teeth) by joining an artificial tooth permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants.
A bridge might be necessary if you are missing one or more teeth. You will first need to book an appointment with us to discuss your concerns.
Dr. Tonkikh at Holland Street Dental will evaluate your smile, and create a customized treatment plan for your oral health. If you and your dentist decide to move forward with the dental bridge appointment, you will have an impression taken of your teeth.
Dr. Tonkikh will then have the lab create your prosthetic device. You will also have your teeth shaded to create a tooth replacement that matches your smile. You will return to the dentist to have the bridge cemented into your smile.
