Dental Crowns and Bridgework in Kansas City
Chances are, many of us have had at least some experience with dental crowns or tooth bridges in the past. Maybe one of our teeth became cracked or chipped, or there wasn’t enough of the original tooth left to safely replace a filling. It happens all the time. But if it’s been a while since you last had a crown, you’ll probably be surprised by the advances that have been made in crowns, bridges, and inlays over the past few years. Today’s crowns are safer, longer-lasting, and more natural-looking than ever before, and offer better protection from decay or injury, as well as improved functionality and a brighter, more natural smile!
At Blacker Family Dental, we use all-ceramic E-Max crowns on all front teeth, in order to keep your smile looking as bright and happy as possible for as long as possible.
Benefits of Dental Crowns
There are many reasons why your dentist may crown or “cap” a tooth. One of the most common is if a tooth is too damaged to be repaired with a filling material, but sometimes we also cap teeth that have been cracked or chipped, or even teeth that are discolored or oddly shaped. Dental crowns may be the best solution for:
- Replacing a substantial filling, especially if there isn’t enough natural tooth remaining to make another filling viable or safe.
- Protecting a weak or damaged tooth that is in danger of further damage or fracturing.
- Restoring a tooth that has been fractured or damaged beyond repair.
Crowns require the same kinds of care that are important for your regular teeth, including brushing and flossing every day and regular trips to your KC family dentist.
Advanced Technology, Comfortable Procedure
Crowns and bridges are what are known as “fixed prosthetic devices,” meaning that they are anchored in place, sometimes by attaching them to a dental implant. Unlike removable dental appliances like dentures, crowns and bridges stay where you put them once they’re in your mouth. At Blacker Family Dental, we know the importance of your comfort and your appearance, which is why we use only the most advanced techniques in fabricating and installing dental crowns and bridges. Our 3M Scanner can help to eliminate the need for dental impressions while still giving you the best crowns and bridges possible, while our Isovac dental isolation system keeps you comfortable throughout the procedure. And of course we use all-ceramic E-Max crowns on your front teeth, so that you walk out the door with a long-lasting, natural-looking smile on your face.
