Want to ask your Sherman, TX, family dentist about dental crowns and bridges?

Do you have missing teeth? Are you worried about and are worried about replacing them with mismatched appliances? If so, then here's dental-crownsthe solution! Just wait and hear what they have to say about dental crowns and bridges from Drs. Julie Folger and Ralf Poineal at their Sherman, TX, office.

What are bridges?

Bridges come in different types:
Fixed partial dentures, which are bond to already existing teeth, or implants. The natural-looking dental appliance is semi-permanent and replaces missing teeth. They're also easily cleaned. All you need to do is remove them to clean them thoroughly.
Another type is fixed dental bridge, it can't be removed. Other types of fixed dental bridges include conventional fixed bridges, cantilever bridges and resin-bonded bridges.
What are crowns?

According to the American College of Prosthodontists, crowns are the most common restorative procedure; crowns are meant to restore aesthetically unpleasant teeth and provide strength for weak teeth.

Crowns are used in covering chips, cracks, and discolorations found on teeth, which may be due to injuries when playing sports or poor dental hygiene, among other reasons of course. Crowns are also placed over fillings that may be dislocated, which, again, adds reinforcement to your teeth and makes biting and chewing functions easier. Using crowns to cover restorative procedures, like a root canal or dental implants, protects and strengthens your teeth.

What are the advantages of bridges and crowns?

  • Both procedures are custom-made and barely noticeable.
  • Dental crowns are used for attaching bridges
  • Covering an existing filling that may be dislocated
  • They cover stained teeth
  • Reinforce teeth to help with withstanding various degrees of pressure while meaning eating

Bridges restore the natural contour, or shape, of teeth, fix bite issues, and are an economically-friendly restoration.
