Ceramic Crowns and Bridges

in Grand Prairie, TX

Teeth suffer decay or damage all the time, and some go missing altogether. If you are looking for solutions to restore your teeth and your confident smile, you’ve come to the right place. Revive Family Dentistry is proud to offer quality cosmetic dental restorations, including ceramic crowns and bridges. You’ll love the incredible results!

Why Choose Ceramic Crowns and Bridges?

Ceramic crowns and bridges are made from a translucent material that can be color and texture-matched to the surrounding teeth, blending seamlessly with your smile. They contain no metal, making them safer and more cosmetic alternatives to many other restorative options. Ceramic is a biocompatible material, making it gentle on the gum tissue. Ceramic crowns and bridges deliver superior and unmatched results, making them the choice restorations, especially for the front teeth.

What are Ceramic Crowns and Bridges?

Ceramic crowns and bridges are prosthetic devices designed to preserve or replace compromised or missing teeth. Both types of restorations are cemented to your natural teeth or dental implants, restoring your functional, confident smile.

A dental crown fully encases the visible portion of a tooth. It can strengthen and protect a damaged or weak tooth, or can be placed on a dental implant to restore the appearance, feel, and function of a natural tooth. Crowns can also preserve the integrity of teeth that have undergone root canal treatment and are used to support dental implant restorations such as bridges or dentures.

A dental bridge offers an excellent restorative solution that literally “bridges” the gap left by one or more missing teeth. It is anchored to two abutment teeth, which are ceramic crowns placed on natural teeth or implants on both sides of the gap. It’s important to restore your missing teeth to prevent the surrounding teeth from shifting out of alignment, potentially resulting in a bad bite and a host of dental problems.

What Is The Ceramic Crown and Bridge Procedure?

Placing a ceramic crown involves preparing your tooth by reshaping it into a boxlike shape. After making several impressions of your teeth, our dental laboratory will construct your restoration. We will place a temporary crown to protect your tooth while waiting for your permanent one. When ready, we will cement your ceramic crown in place.

Fitting you with a ceramic bridge involves a similar process with impressions taken of your mouth to fabricate your bridge. After your bridge is made by our dental laboratory, it will be cemented on the anchor teeth (abutment teeth). 

How Should You Care for Your Ceramic Crown or Bridge?

Make sure to brush and floss daily to keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy. Avoid chewing hard or sticky foods, and do not use your teeth as tools to prevent damage to your ceramic crown or bridge. Additionally, make sure to schedule your routine dental exams and cleanings to allow us to monitor your restorations and your oral health.
