Dental Crown & Dental Bridge Services
If you have teeth that are severely decayed, damaged or missing, a dental crown or dental bridge by Dr. Nancy Duque could be the answer. Dental crowns and bridges are commonly used to restore the function and aesthetics of damaged or missing teeth. At Tuscany Dental Care, we love helping patients regain the confident smile they deserve at any stage of life. We can rebuild your smile to look, function and feel like it should.
What is a dental crown?
A dental crown or “cap” is a procedure used to restore or repair a tooth that has lost over 50% of its natural structure due to a cavity or due to fracture. The remaining tooth structure is covered entirely by the crown. We provide our patients with cosmetic tooth colored crowns made of the latest in ceramic materials such as:
- lithium disilicate
- porcelain fused to semi precious metal.
We also provide gold crowns when there is a need or desire for that option. A local San Antonio laboratory makes our crowns in close proximity to our office. This enables us to work closely with the technicians and for some cases, we send our patients to the laboratory for custom shading.
Cosmetic crowns can be used to address a variety of dental concerns, including the following:
- To strengthen a tooth after significant trauma or severe decay
- To restore moderate to severe fractures
- As a dental implant restoration
- Following a root canal treatment
- To correct discolored, misshapen or gapped teeth
If you’re missing one or more teeth, we can create a dental bridge. Dental bridges are cemented to natural teeth or implants surrounding the space where the tooth once stood.
Here is a great example of dental bridge work by Dr. Duque:
How are dental crowns different from porcelain veneers?
Veneers cover the front portion of the tooth, used mainly in cosmetic dentistry, and crowns encase the entire tooth.
Communication about your dental restoration options is key
Whether you need a single tooth restored with a beautiful cosmetic crown or you need to replace multiple missing teeth with a natural-looking dental bridge, you can trust us to provide an efficient and stress-free process. Dr. Duque values the importance of carefully explaining procedures to patients and answering their questions or concerns prior to treatment.
