A crown is a fixed restoration that is usually required in a tooth with a large restoration that is failing, a posterior tooth that has undergone root canal therapy, or a fractured tooth. The tooth is prepared, an impression of the prepared tooth is taken, and a temporary crown is placed to protect the tooth in the interim. The impression and all diagnostic information are submitted to a dental lab where the final crown is fabricated. At a subsequent appointment, the fit of the crown on the prepared tooth, adjacent teeth, and opposing teeth will be equilibrated and the crown then permanently cemented. The team at 58 Dental has extensive experience in the fabrication of dental crowns. Crowns may be constructed utilizing a variety of materials, including: gold, metal coping with overlaying porcelain, feldspathic porcelain, lucite-reinforced porcelain, lithium disilicate, zirconia, or composite. 58 Dental will work closely with you to create optimum aesthetics, form, and function, utilizing the best material choice for the given situation.
A dental bridge is indicated for partial endentulism. If a patient is missing between one and four teeth, a dental bridge can potentially be the answer. A dental bridge relies on healthy, strong teeth adjacent to the area of missing teeth. The adjacent teeth will be used to support the pontic, which is the portion of the bridge that replaces the missing teeth. Dental bridges may be constructed utilizing a variety of materials, including; gold, metal coping with overlaying porcelain, lithium disilicate, or zirconia. 58 Dental will work closely with you to create optimum aesthetics, form, and function, utilizing the best material choice for the given situation.
