At Lerner and Lemongello Dentistry, the patients in Palm Beach Gardens, FL are pleased to learn about a wide selection of services that can be used to enhance their smile. Some treatment options are purely aesthetic, while others are for the protection of the smile. Common restorations used in our practice by our dedicated providers include ceramic dental crowns and bridges.
Both of these restorations have their place in general and restorative dentistry. Dental crowns are known as “caps” and are fabricated with porcelain. They cover the entire visible area of the natural tooth above the gum line. This restoration is often placed to act as a layer of protection for a tooth that may be broken or weakened. Dental crowns are commonly used in dentistry and can provide strength and structure to a tooth that might otherwise be susceptible to damage. Dental crowns are made of porcelain that matches the color of the patient’s existing teeth to ensure they look as natural as possible.
Dental bridges, however, are dental restorations that are used to replace missing teeth. The dental bridge provides a permanent replacement for one or more teeth in a row. The dental bridge is fabricated with false teeth fused to dental crowns on each side. The crowns cover the adjacent teeth which act as a support for the restoration. The bridge is known for “bridging the gap” between teeth when natural teeth are no longer there.
Learning about dental restorations is often done right in the dental office during an evaluation or consultation appointment. If you feel as though you could benefit from a dental restoration, our team urges you to contact the office to schedule a visit and discuss your needs.
