Why People Love Mount Hope Family Dentistry

Emily S.
I had a wonderful experience yesterday at my cleaning appointment! The reception staff were kind and welcoming. My hygienist was efficient, knowledgeable, and very friendly! They also had a massage therapist in the waiting room for patient appreciation, and I received a complimentary massage both before and after my appointment. I was receiving dental care at this office before the recent change of ownership, and I will most definitely be staying with the office for the foreseeable future. It was great to meet Dr. Bo—I feel confident trusting the new team with my dental care.
Rebecca M.
The receptionists were very kind and professional and helped me with scheduling not only my appointment, but also my two kids and were able to get us in all together. The hygienist was also very kind and did a great job with all three of our cleanings. Dr. Bo was very thorough and explained and showed me what type of dental work I would need done. I was super pleased with how well they treated and interacted with my two young kids. They made them feel safe and eased their nerves of the dentist. Extremely happy with our experience and look forward to continuing our dental health with this office.

Restoration of Functionality

Crowns and bridges restore the functionality of your teeth, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods and speak clearly without difficulty. They are custom-made to fit perfectly in your mouth, matching the bite and alignment of your natural teeth.

Aesthetic Improvement

Made from high-quality materials like porcelain or ceramic, crowns and bridges are tailored to match the color and shape of your natural teeth, providing a seamless, natural appearance. They cover damaged or discolored teeth, enhancing your smile and boosting your confidence.

Long-term Dental Health

By filling the gaps left by missing teeth, bridges prevent the remaining teeth from shifting, which could lead to a misaligned bite and other dental problems. Crowns protect vulnerable teeth from further decay, breakage, or damage, helping to maintain overall dental health.

Understanding the Differences Between Crowns and Bridges

When considering restorative dental treatments, it's important to understand the distinct functions and applications of dental crowns and bridges, as they cater to different dental needs.

Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a cap that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. Crowns are used in situations where a tooth is significantly damaged or decayed, has undergone extensive filling, or needs reinforcement after a root canal. They are also used to cover dental implants or to improve the aesthetic appearance of a tooth.

Dental Bridges

On the other hand, a dental bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. It consists of one or more false teeth (pontics) that are held in place by crowns that are attached to the adjacent teeth or implants, serving as anchors. Bridges not only restore the appearance of the smile but also prevent the remaining natural teeth from shifting out of position, which could lead to further oral health issues.

Both crowns and bridges are custom-made to match the color and contour of your natural teeth, ensuring a seamless and attractive result. While they serve different purposes—one to cover and protect a damaged tooth and the other to fill a gap caused by missing teeth—both are fundamental procedures in dental restoration, enhancing both the functionality and aesthetics of your smile.

What to Expect When Getting a Dental Crown or Bridge

Consultation and Planning

Your journey to a restored smile begins with a detailed consultation. Our dentist will assess your dental health and discuss your goals. Using digital imaging, we ensure precise measurements and a perfect fit for your custom restoration.

Preparation of Teeth

For a crown, the tooth will be reshaped to ensure a proper fit. For a bridge, the adjacent teeth to the gap will be prepared as these serve as anchors for the bridge.

Temporary Solution

A temporary crown or bridge may be placed to protect your teeth while your custom solution is being crafted in our state-of-the-art lab.

Fitting and Adjustments

Once your crown or bridge is ready, you'll return for a fitting. Our dentists will make any necessary adjustments to ensure a comfortable and secure fit before permanently cementing it in place.

Follow-Up Care

We will provide detailed care instructions and schedule follow-up visits to monitor your new crown or bridge, ensuring it remains in perfect condition.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do dental crowns and bridges last?

With proper care, dental crowns and bridges can last many years. The lifespan typically ranges from 5 to 15 years, but with diligent oral hygiene and regular checkups, they can last even longer.

Are dental crowns or bridges painful?

Most patients experience very little discomfort during the procedure. Local anesthesia is used to numb the area, and options for sedation are available for those with dental anxiety.

How do I care for my crown or bridge?

Care for crowns and bridges as you would your natural teeth. Regular brushing, flossing, and checkups are essential. Avoid chewing hard foods and ice to prevent damage.

Will my insurance cover the cost of crowns and bridges?

Most dental insurance plans cover part of the cost of crowns and bridges. We will help you understand your benefits and provide a cost estimate before treatment begins.

What materials are used to make crowns and bridges?

We use a variety of materials to craft crowns and bridges, depending on the needs and preferences of the patient. Common materials include porcelain, ceramic, and zirconia, which are popular for their durability and natural appearance. Metal alloys and gold are also options, particularly for back teeth where strength is a priority.

What should I do if my crown or bridge becomes loose or falls out?

If your crown or bridge loosens or falls out, it's important to contact us immediately to schedule an appointment. Avoid trying to fix it yourself or using temporary adhesives as these could cause further damage. Keep the crown or bridge in a safe place, as we may be able to reattach it.

How do I know if I need a crown or a bridge?

The decision to use a crown or a bridge is based on your specific dental needs. Crowns are typically used to cover a damaged, decayed, or cosmetically imperfect tooth, providing strength and improving appearance. Bridges are used to fill the space left by one or more missing teeth, anchoring to adjacent teeth or implants. During your consultation at Mount Hope Dentistry, we'll assess your condition and recommend the best treatment option for you.
