Dental Crowns & Bridges
Are you struggling with teeth that are overly worn down, injured, suffering from advanced decay, or even missing altogether? Dr. Ali Torabi offers worthwhile restorative solutions here at Flawless Smile Dentistry. With a custom dental crown or bridge, your healthy, strong smile can be restored seamlessly. Contact our Claremore office today to schedule your first appointment, or if you have any questions for our dedicated staff.
A dental crown (also known as a “cap”) can rebuild a struggling’s tooth function, natural shape, and appearance while preserving the remaining structure underneath. We offer several materials for these versatile restorations, but Dr. Torabi recommends tooth-colored porcelain in most cases to help the patient maintain an aesthetically pleasing appearance that leaves them smiling proudly. Porcelain crowns aren’t just beautiful – they’re also durable and long-lasting!
Traditionally, our Claremore, OK team can design and place your brand-new, customized crown over the span of a few appointments. We also offer state-of-the-art CEREC technology, which can simplify this process down to a single, convenient visit without sacrificing any of the quality you deserve! Once placed, your new dental crown can be treated just like a natural tooth with diligent brushing and flossing at least once a day. Remember to schedule a dental check-up and cleaning every six months as well!
If you’ve lost one or more teeth in a row along a single arch, a fixed dental bridge can be created to restore the necessary structure. By filling this gap, your new bridge will prevent the gradual repositioning of remaining teeth and restore your bite’s strength as well.
Your new bridge is permanently attached into place with the help of two abutment crowns, which are anchored over nearby teeth. However, this does require the alteration of healthy dental structure, which is why Dr. Torabi is likely to recommend a dental implant-supported bridge as an excellent alternative that’s healthier and longer-lasting overall. Depending on the number of teeth that need to be replaced and their location within the mouth, our team may also suggest the creation of a traditional or implant-retained denture. With the help of routine appointments and oral hygiene at home, patients can look forward to their new bridge lasting at least eight to ten years.
