Porcelain Crown & Bridgework in Spring Valley
If you are missing even a single tooth, you understand just how greatly your condition can affect your daily life. If the tooth that is missing was located near the back of the mouth, you likely find that chewing becomes significantly more difficult. If you are missing any teeth located in the front of the mouth, smiling and speaking may become activities that you’d rather avoid while in public. Fortunately, todays’ dental technology allows us to repair damaged smiles in a way that looks and feels more natural than ever before. At our Las Vegas, NV dental practice, Dr. Michael G. Hollingshead believes that everyone deserves the opportunity to enjoy a complete set of teeth, and one of the ways that we help accomplish this involves the use of crown and bridgework.
Custom Porcelain Crowns
A crown is a custom dental restoration that fits like a cap over an existing tooth. Whenever possible, Dr. Hollingshead utilizes crowns crafted from the finest dental porcelain, or ceramic, in order to achieve a beautifully lifelike appearance. In fact, today’s state-of-the-art materials and technology allow us to create a dental crown that is virtually indistinguishable from your natural dentition. No one ever has to know that you’ve had dental work performed. Simply smile with confidence, and rest assured in the knowledge that your teeth look as great as they feel.
Lifelike Crown and Bridge Restorations
If one or more teeth are missing in an area flanked on either side by a healthy tooth, it may be possible to secure a dental bridge with two custom crowns. The replacement teeth, known as pontics, are supported by two abutment crowns, thereby taking the place of teeth that have been lost.
In some cases, patients opt to have a bridge placed that is supported by dental implants. This produces more stable and secure results, allowing for a wider range of various foods. Dr. Hollingshead will discuss all of your cosmetic and restorative options with you when you come in for your consultation. Together, we will develop a tooth replacement treatment plan that best suits your unique needs.
