Dental crowns are caps that go over the top of your tooth and extend all the way down to the gum line, covering all visible portions of your tooth. These crowns can be made from porcelain, metal, resin, or ceramic material.
Crowns are ideal when your tooth needs to be restored, either because an accident chipped away a portion or because decay compromised the tooth’s structural integrity. Once the crown is in place, it looks and feels just like a natural tooth. Crowns are particularly ideal for molars because they give you a sturdy chewing surface.
Good dental emergency care requires more than just a thorough knowledge of dental procedures. An emergency dentist also has to be able to work well under pressure and in high-stakes situations. The professionals at Dental Studio at Mark Center in Alexandria all have considerable experience in these circumstances and have helped many people restore their smile and oral health.
Dental Studio at Mark Center offers crowns to a wide variety of patients because they’re so effective at restoring a tooth’s appearance and strength. People often get crowns to:
- Protect a tooth weakened by decay
- Protect a tooth after a root canal
- Restore a tooth damaged in an accident
- Serve as a replacement tooth after a dental implant
- Cover a tooth that is discolored or misshapen
- Stabilize a tooth after a sizeable filling
- Hold a bridge in place
Clearly, there are several instances where a dental crown can help you get a full, functional smile. And the team at Dental Studio at Mark Center offers color-matched crowns so it blends seamlessly with your surrounding teeth.
Bridges are a type of tooth replacement. In this case, the replacement tooth is held in place by crowns placed over the top of the teeth on either side of the missing tooth. These crowns hold the bridge in place, filling in your smile and giving you a replacement tooth that looks and feels natural.
Dental Studio at Mark Center can also create bridges to replace multiple consecutive missing teeth. If you have a gap in your smile, don’t hesitate to ask them if a bridge could be right for you.
