What Are Dental Bridges and Dental Crowns?
Medgaus Dental Care provides a wide variety of dental procedures to help fix damaged teeth and gaps between teeth. A dental bridge is treated like an implant that is used to replace the missing teeth. This procedure utilizes the undamaged teeth to hold the crown or dentures in place, thus creating a bridge between your teeth. A traditional bridge is created by placing a fake tooth in the missing space between the teeth. This implant is then supported by natural teeth to restore proper alignment and appearance. The bond is held in place to fill the distances in the gapped teeth. This procedure restores your natural and beautiful smile.
Another procedure our clinic offers is dental crowns. Crowns are used to restore a damaged tooth by covering it. The crown not only helps your overall oral appearance, but can also aid a decayed tooth. Dr. Carl Medgaus carefully places the crown, which is color-matched and molded to look like your original tooth, over your damaged or decayed tooth in order to give you a natural bite. We offer two different types of crowns – porcelain and ceramic, which are both adapted to your natural tooth color. Crowns are performed as a cosmetic procedure as well as a restorative one. We believe it is important to replace the damaged area immediately. Failure to do so will result in more severe oral problems.

What Are The Benefits of Dental Crowns and Bridges?
Both dental crowns and dental bridges are restorative procedures; however, they can also have cosmetic benefits. These procedures strive to improve your overall oral cavity health by restoring the form and function of decayed or damaged teeth. We might also recommend you for either of these procedures if you have any missing teeth. If these gaps in your mouth are not treated immediately then the oral alignment will begin to shift. This can lead to more severe problems. If the oral alignment is not restored to its original state, problems like gum disease or temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders can occur. Crowns and bridges are often the solution to prevent misaligned and missing teeth.
How Much Do Dental Crowns and Bridges Cost?
Dental crowns and bridges are not the same for every patient. For example, one patient might only need one crown and another patient could need several crowns and bridges. They might require different materials in different areas of the mouth. There is no fixed rate on the crowns and bridges individually because each circumstance is different. At Medgaus Dental Care, we will strive to provide you with the most affordable and effective option. Come in to see us for an estimate.
