Fix Damage With Dental Crowns & Bridges in Kennewick, WA
No matter how bad your dental damage, our Kennewick, WA dentists can likely repair it with dental crowns and bridges. A bridge replaces missing teeth, whether one or a few. A crown covers your entire tooth to mend breaks, cracks, or severe decay. It can also hide cosmetic issues such as deep stains or misshapen teeth.Dr. Jeff Morgan on Dental Crowns and Bridges Read Transcript
Sometimes, fillings are in order. In the right parameters, fillings are great. They'll work and you'll be satisfied with them. Sometimes if over 50 percent of the tooth is broken down, or is approaching the 50 percent mark, where it's destroyed on that part of the tooth, then a crown or bridge might be the best option, or is the best option, when that arises, so that we can restore that full, so that we get the aesthetics and the function and the form and the durability that we need. Sometimes you gotta think more than just short-term. You gotta think long-term. What's best for my health? What's gonna be best for five, 10, 15 years down the road and keep me in good health? That's the decisions you need to make and the thinking that needs to happen is you think about the best parameters for your health.
A dental crown:
- Restores your tooth’s appearance
- Strengthens your tooth and protects it from further damage
- Improves your oral function
- Replaces missing teeth when used as part of a dental bridge or when attached to a dental implant
- Lasts many years with proper care
We Use Only the Best Materials for Our Crowns
At Grandridge Dental, we use only the best materials for our dental restorations. For crowns, that includes a type of zirconia called BruxZir, which earned a Dental Advisor Product Award in 2017. Compared to other types of zirconia, it is:
- More natural looking
- Practically impervious to chips or breaks
- Extremely resistant to wear or staining
Less modification of your tooth is required than for porcelain crowns. Unlike porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns, our dentists won’t need to fuse your BruxZir crown to a metal base. You won’t have to worry about a noticeable dark line at your gums.
