A Smile Built for Royalty with Dental Crowns and Bridges
Has the integrity of your smile been compromised due to decay or structural imparities? If so, Dr. James Wright and his team of dental care professionals can restore health, beauty, and functionality to your smile. We believe that everyone deserves to have a healthy smile that he or she can feel proud wearing and confident to show off. It is for that reason that our team is dedicated to helping patients boost their self-esteem by redesigning the framework of their smiles. Dental crowns and dental bridges are two restorative dentistry treatments that our Salt Lake Citydental professionals offer to repair damaged, worn-down smiles and improve the aesthetics of previously damaged teeth and gums.
The Differences Between Dental Crowns and Bridges
By examining the health of your mouth, our restorative dentistry team can determine which treatment is best suited to your case. We are here to provide you with comprehensive dental care solutions no matter what the condition of your mouth. By analyzing your teeth, gums, bite, and jawbone through digital X-rays and an oral health screening, we can clearly identify any dental problems that may exist, and treat ongoing dental conditions before your oral health is further impaired. If your teeth are cracked, chipped, decayed, or missing, then dental crowns or dental bridges may be a wonderful solution for your smile.
Dental Crowns- Dental crowns, also known as “caps,” are designed to restore function and cosmetic beauty to heavily damaged teeth. A crown engulfs the exposed portion of a tooth, providing support for your smile and protecting the existing structure from further damage. Dr Wright utilizes the safest, most natural-looking materials to create dental crowns at his Downtown Salt Lake City practice, including porcelain and gold alloys, and depending on the physiology of a patient’s mouth and his or her cosmetic goals, Dr. Wright will recommend the use of one material over another. Dental crowns blend in flawlessly with your smile, as they can be crafted to match the exact shade of your existing teeth.
Dental Bridges- Dental bridges, made from the same materials as dental crowns, are designed to bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. Dental bridges are anchored by two dental crowns or two healthy existing teeth. Bridges beautifully fill the spaces that missing teeth leave behind and restore function and support to a patient’s entire smile. What many patients fail to realize is that missing teeth can inflict further harm on existing tooth structures. Dental bridges at our Salt Lake City office can provide your remaining, healthy teeth with the protection they need to remain intact and unharmed.
We believe that everyone deserves to have a healthy smile that he or she can feel proud wearing and confident to show off.
