A Patient Story
How Dental Crowns Can Help
We can create a custom crown to be ‘capped’ over a damaged or weakened tooth. We may also cap the tooth with a dental crown after a root canal or as part of a dental implant restoration. These are shaped, colored and customized like your natural teeth and may be used for both cosmetic and restorative purposes.
- Rebuilds damaged teeth
- Masks dental flaws
- Reshapes misshapen or chipped teeth
- Looks and feels very natural
- Blends and matches the other teeth
A bridge fills and connects the gap between two teeth, offering a natural looking tooth replacement. A bridge is created by attaching two dental crowns to either side of the gap.
Here is how bridges can help:
- Restores the bite
- Helps maintain natural face shape
- Improves overall jaw function
- Restores the smile
- Prevents teeth from drifting
Bridges Vs. Dental Implants
Many patients wonder what the key differences are between getting a dental bridge or a dental implant. Dr. Al-Hammali may recommend either, depending on your situation.
While bridges provide cosmetic fixes, dental implants bond with the jawbone so there is no risk of them slipping. They fill the gap as a bridge would, but are designed to function just like your natural tooth because they are attached below the gum line. We can discuss the benefits of each procedure during your personalized consultation!
