Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a false tooth made of ceramic porcelain that is designed to cap and cover your entire remaining tooth structure and protect it from further damage. These prostheses may be necessary if you have a severe cavity that is too large to treat with a composite filling. If a cavity is too large, attempting to fill it may compromise the tooth structure and simply cause more damage. After root canal therapy, a dental crown is necessary to protect and cover your tooth. A dental crown is also necessary to complete the implant process.

Typically, a dental crown is recommended when a tooth has become seriously damaged due to tooth decay or an oral injury, but they can also be used for cosmetic purposes. For example, if you have a tooth that is healthy but small or misshapen, a dental crown can be used to create a seamless, beautiful smile.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge can be a solution for replacing one or multiple missing teeth that are adjacent. Using a crown on each end as an anchor, an artificial tooth or teeth are placed in between to fill in the gap. A bridge is fixed, which means that we permanently place it, and it is not removable.

At Denovo Dental Cosmetic Center, we typically use porcelain to create dental bridges that are seamless and complement your smile.

A trusted dental lab will handcraft your restoration, which typically takes one to two weeks. When it’s ready, you’ll return to our dental office to have it permanently placed and adjusted to fit your bite correctly. Now you can enjoy all the benefits of eating and smile with your newly restored teeth!
