Porcelain Crowns & Bridges
Why Crowns or Bridges?
Strong and functional teeth help you live the life you want! Sometimes teeth become decayed or worn enough that they need to be replaced with a crown. Or perhaps you have a missing tooth due to an accident or extraction. In either instance, we have North Jersey solutions for you: porcelain crowns and bridges, both examples of cosmetic dentistry for patients.
What are Crowns and Bridges?
Dr. Martin and Dr. Ferraiolo use high quality porcelain crowns to restore your tooth anatomy, bite pressure and smile. The porcelain is crafted just for you at a very high quality dental lab. This way, the utmost precision goes into making your crown so it will fit, feel and function just right. Also, the porcelain looks completely natural, like a healthy tooth. Older restorations contained metal, which appears flat or discolors the tooth along the gum line. Not so with strong and beautiful porcelain crown!
When a tooth is lost, it is always best to replace it. You can choose from a dental bridge, dentures or a dental implant, depending on your needs and priorities. Dental implants are by far the highest functioning, most stable choice. If the surgical placement or length of the implant restoration doesn’t fit your needs, a dental bridge is a great Totowa Little Falls, NJ area cosmetic dentistry alternative.
A dental bridge works by:
- Attaching to neighboring crowns
- Replacing the visible portion of the missing tooth without extending into the gums
- Not requiring surgery
- Being an efficient restoration especially if the surrounding teeth already need crowns
- Being comprised of porcelain or porcelain-fused-to-metal
When looking for the best in care for your dental needs, look no further than Drs Martin & Ferraiolo.
