Patients who lose or severely damage teeth can expect to receive top-quality restorations at Glacier Peak Dentistry. We provide natural-looking crowns & dental bridges that offer the performance and reliability you need.
Crowns and dental bridges are provided when a patient has one or more teeth that are lost or severely damaged. Our crowns and bridges are remarkably strong and sturdy, and they will make it much easier for the user to chew properly and speak. This is because we construct our crowns and bridges from porcelain. This is one of the most highly regarded materials in the dental community, both for its natural look and exceptional performance.
Since these are custom-built restorations, a patient must make at least two visits to Glacier Peak Dentistry to receive a crown or bridge. The initial visit involves taking impressions of the existing teeth. A dental laboratory will then use these impressions to create a customized restoration to replace or repair the lost or damaged structure. The patient will return for a follow-up visit to have it installed and fitted once it is ready.
We normally provide dental bridges when a patient has lost multiple teeth or had a sequence of teeth removed. This restoration consists of one or more replacement teeth and a supporting structure to keep them in place. A bridge gets its name because the replacement teeth “bridge” the gap that was created by the missing teeth. There are multiple methods available for keeping bridges secure. They may use permanently installed precision metal mechanisms or abutment crowns to remain steady when in use. Some bridges use multiple support mechanisms for added security. Bridges can also be permanently fixed in place or removable for easy cleaning.
