If you are looking for an experienced dentist to help restore your teeth with dental crowns or bridges then contact our local Poughkeepsie, NY dentist office.
We'll schedule an appointment for you to meet with our dentist to discuss you options. Both crowns and bridges are fixed prosthetic options that are used to restore your teeth's health and smile.
A dental crown is a cap that is used to cover a damaged tooth. The purpose of a cap is strengthen the damaged tooth, prevent future damage, and improve the appearance. Typically dental crowns are used to:
•Replace large fillings
•Protect a damaged tooth
•Cover a dental implant
While in contrast a bridge utilizes existing teeth to fill in an area left vacant by a missing tooth. The purpose of a bridge is to fill in gaps left by missing teeth to avoid the shifting of your remaining teeth.
While crowns and bridges provide solutions for individuals with missing or unhealthy teeth it is still important that you visit our local dentist for routine check-ups. Routine check-ups will help prevent future needs for crowns and/or bridges. In addition, while crowns and bridges are durable it is possible that they can become loose over time. Routine visits to your dentist will help prolong the lifetime of your crowns and/or bridges.
