Dental Crowns & Bridges in Spring Valley, Las Vegas
A crown (often referred to simply as a “cap”) is a sturdy dental restoration that serves to cover the entire surface of a tooth. In some cases, a crown can actually help us prevent an extraction, allowing patients to preserve more of their natural dentition. A bridge is a dental prosthetic that replaces between one and three missing teeth in a row; it is fabricated in a specialized laboratory and secured to the two existing teeth that lie on either side of the gap in your smile. Dr. Hollingshead provides patients with a variety of restorative dentistry options at his Las Vegas, NV dental practice, including custom crown and bridge treatment.
Crown & Bridge: Restoring Form and Function
When a patient is missing one or more teeth, the whole mouth is negatively affected. Surrounding teeth can begin to shift and turn, and the gums are made more susceptible to disease. With crowns and bridges, the missing teeth are replaced with lifelike prosthetics that keep surrounding teeth in their proper positions. The bridge that spans the gap is held in place with two custom crowns that are cemented or bonded to the healthy teeth on either side. This type of restoration helps patients with numerous missing teeth enjoy a complete smile and further improves their ability to chew and speak properly. Dr. Hollingshead will talk with you about your individual needs and expectations prior to the procedure, ensuring that your new crown and bridge restoration looks and feels natural and comfortable.
