Missing or damaged teeth can damage your confidence when it comes to your smile. One worn or cracked tooth can make daily activities like eating painful and unpleasant.
A crown is a tooth-shaped cover, or "cap," custom designed to fit over a broken or worn tooth to restore it's shape, appearance and function. Unlike removable dentures, your crown is permanently attached to your tooth and requires no special maintenance beyond maintaining healthy oral hygiene habits.
With the right materials, your crown can be made nearly undetectable. Your dentist will discuss the available types and help you make the best choice for your unique situation.
While crowns are an excellent solution for damaged teeth, a missing tooth requires a more direct approach. A dental bridge is a connected series of crowns and porcelain teeth specially designed to fill that gap in your smile.
By anchoring the replacement tooth to the teeth on either side, a bridge can provide a robust and long-lasting solution to missing teeth. Constructed of porcelain fused with metal, your bridge can last for more than 15 years with proper care.
For many of our patients, dental crowns and bridges in San Francisco are just one of many tools available in tooth restoration. Call our Pacific Heights Dental Office today to speak with a member of our team about the best possible pathway to the smile you want.
