PORCELAIN CROWN & BRIDGE
Porcelain Bridge:

Sometimes gum disease, injury or decay results in the loss of a tooth. A large gap in your smile can create significant problems for your dental health if it isn’t corrected. Over time your bite pressure may shift to other parts of your mouth to compensate for an inability to chew efficiently in the area of the missing tooth. Neighboring teeth may begin to move about, moving into the gap area and resulting in discomfort, gum damage, possible pain and more problems down the road.

Dr. Montes de Oca creates a lifelike, functional bridge to correct your smile, restore your bite and alleviate your discomfort. A porcelain bridge is created out of metal or an alloy that is cover with porcelain giving an aesthetic and natural look and utilizes the teeth on both sides of the gap as its supportive structure.

Porcelain Crown:

Your teeth undergo a tremendous amount of wear and tear during your lifetime. Teeth may show this wear in a variety of ways, including discoloration, chipping and cracking. Crowns restore your teeth and your smile to look brilliant once again. Porcelain crowns can be made of porcelain fuse to metal or porcelain with out any metal and both are shaded to match your natural teeth.

Crowns made of precious metal (Gold) are also an option. After some tooth preparation, crowns are specially fitted to give you back the look and functionality of your smile. You can also rely on crowns to correct bite problems, after root canals, close gaps between teeth, alleviate chewing problems, or sensitivity to cold, hot and sweet foods.

Implant crowns are process in a similar way fitting on top of the implant previously placed inside the jaw bone. Ask Dr. Montes de Oca or his team if crowns are for you.
