Crown and Bridge
At Creative Dental Concepts, our goal is to help you achieve and maintain a healthy and beautiful smile for a lifetime. One of the ways we do this is with crown and bridge restorations. While these restorations are utilized for completely different situations, they both have the common goal of preserving your tooth and protecting your oral health.
What is a Dental Crown?
When your tooth becomes fractured, injured, infected, or damaged beyond the scope of what a dental filling can repair, our doctors may recommend a dental crown to restore your tooth. A crown is made of high quality porcelain, and is designed to replace your natural tooth structure and protect your root. It fits over your remaining tooth structure like a “cap,” taking the place of your damaged tooth.
Crowns are custom shaded to match your existing teeth and complement your smile. You’ll enjoy all the same function you had before such as eating, chewing, smiling, brushing and flossing with your new tooth. With the right care, your crown can potentially last for many years, which makes it a great long-term investment in your oral health.
We’re proud to offer CEREC one-visit crowns. A process that used to take 2-4 weeks to complete can now be done during one appointment with CEREC technology. Our doctors are able to design, fabricate and place your crown, so you’ll leave our office the same day with your smile completely restored.
What is a Dental Bridge?
For patients who are missing one or more adjacent teeth, a dental bridge is an ideal replacement option. Using two crowns attached to your healthy teeth as anchors, a bridge fills in the gaps with custom prosthetic teeth. Our doctors combine both their skill and artistry to create a bridge that enhances your smile. To ensure the longevity of your bridge, it’s important to keep your anchor teeth clean and healthy.
Dr. Craybas and Dr. Crumb have been providing patients in Syracuse with high quality dentistry for decades. If you have a tooth that is failing, or in need of repair, they can determine which type of restoration is right for your needs during and evaluation.
With so much advanced training and experience between them, you can rest assured that no matter what type of repair your tooth needs, you’re in capable hands. We also use only the finest materials to create your restorations so they not only look appealing; they’re also durable and long lasting.
