Dental Crown & Bridges
Dental Crown & Bridges In Staten Island NY
A dental crown, also known as a cap, is a synthetic tooth made of porcelain that is placed onto a damaged or otherwise unhealthy tooth to restore its proper structure and function. Crowns are generally used to strengthen a tooth that has been severely cracked, decayed or has had a root canal procedure and can no longer maintain a proper shape on its own. A dental crown can also replace a large filling or cover a severely misshapen or discolored tooth, and it can serve as support for a bridge. At Oakwood Dental we provide our patients with the most technologically advanced treatments, for the most natural looking restorations. We use two state of the art systems to create custom crowns, CEREC and Zirconia all ceramics, to provide the optimum balance of strength, beauty and the perfect transmission of light so the repaired tooth has excellent functionality and blends with your natural teeth.
A bridge is one or more synthetic teeth designed to replace teeth that are missing, in order to prevent the misalignment of the remaining healthy teeth and restore the proper function of your mouth. Made of tooth-resembling porcelain, a bridge will fill the spaces between your healthy teeth. To maintain proper positioning, the bridge will need to be attached to your natural teeth, dental implants or crowns, which will serve as an anchor, this allows for excellent functionality and security.
