Crowns & Bridges Services in Racine, WI
If you require a dental crown or a fixed bridge, here is vital information you should know first:
Teeth that have 50% or more of its structure lost due to decay or trauma, and a crown is required to restore its function. Also following Root Canal Therapy, crowns are necessary to strengthen the tooth.
If you have the following conditions, we recommend a dental crown:
- You are unable to bite correctly because of a poorly sharpened tooth
- You are not comfortable with discoloration of your tooth
- You have several fillings, or your teeth are decayed
Bridges are used to replace missing teeth. Teeth on either side of the missing tooth or teeth can be crowned, the final restoration has the missing tooth or teeth attached to the crowns and is bonded in place. It is not removable.
Ceramic Crowns and Bridges:
The dental crowns and bridges at Racine Dentistry are only made of all ceramics. All-ceramic crowns and bridges allow Dr. Budzinski to create natural-looking replacements that mimic the patient’s natural teeth. All-ceramic crowns and bridges are also as durable as natural teeth.
Under local anesthesia, teeth are prepared, an impression of the preparation is taken. Using the impression, a dental laboratory can mill a crown from a block of ceramics. This ensures a beautiful crown with a perfect fit. Crowns are bonded in place over the preparation.
