There are options for high-quality tooth replacement that address both aesthetics and oral health. At Incredible Smiles, our aim is to help you achieve long-lasting results that enhance your quality of life.
Though several types of dental crowns exist, all-porcelain crowns stand out due to their unique advantages.
Healthier & Higher Quality
We provide the highest quality custom-made porcelain crowns available by our ceramicist. Many people believe they have received a porcelain crown, when in fact they have a “porcelain fused to metal” crown. This can lead to allergic reactions. The culprit usually lies in the nickel content found within the metal layer of the crown. Unlike these crowns, all-porcelain alternatives completely eliminate the risk of metal allergies, making them a safer option for guests, especially women who tend to experience such reactions more frequently.
Superior Aesthetics and Natural Appearance
Another major advantage of all-porcelain crowns is their ability to mimic the appearance of natural teeth. They possess a translucency that closely resembles the enamel of your original teeth. As a result, all-porcelain crowns blend seamlessly with the rest of your teeth, ensuring a more natural and elegant-looking smile.
Preservation of Tooth Structure
Quite often, people overlook the importance of preserving their natural tooth structure when it comes to dental restorations. All-porcelain crowns take the lead in this regard, as they require less removal of your natural tooth structure during the preparation process. By preserving more of your tooth, all-porcelain crowns help maintain the integrity of your teeth and contribute to healthier long-term dental outcomes.
Dental Bridges: When and Why They’re Used
While all-porcelain crowns are an excellent solution for individual tooth restorations, dental bridges play an essential role in cases where one or more teeth are missing. Designed to bridge the gap created by tooth loss, dental bridges provide a stable, comfortable, and long-lasting solution to regain the form and function of your smile.
Options for missing teeth include dental implants, bridges, partials, or dentures. Dental bridges are an ideal option when there is a missing tooth and the teeth on either side have fillings or crowns.
How Dental Bridges Work
Dental bridges consist of a row of artificial teeth, known as pontics, anchored in place by crowns placed on the adjacent healthy teeth, called abutments. These abutments act as sturdy pillars supporting the entire bridge structure, ensuring it remains securely in place while you eat, speak, and go about your daily activities. Dental bridges can be made from various materials, including porcelain, gold, or a combination of both. At Incredible Smiles, we work with high-quality materials to guarantee the durability and aesthetics of our dental bridges.
The Benefits of Dental Bridges
- Restored Functionality: Dental bridges allow you to eat and speak with ease, as they replace the missing teeth and distribute bite forces evenly across your jaw.
- Improved Dental Health: By filling the empty spaces left by lost teeth, dental bridges help prevent the shifting of your remaining teeth. This can reduce the risk of dental issues such as gum disease, tooth decay, and misalignment.
- Maintained Facial Structure: Tooth loss can lead to the sagging of facial muscles and the appearance of premature aging. Dental bridges help maintain your facial structure by supporting the muscles and keeping your remaining teeth in their proper position.
- Enhanced Aesthetics: Built to mimic the appearance of your natural teeth, dental bridges blend seamlessly with your existing smile, giving you a beautiful and confident appearance.
Dental bridges serve as an effective and reliable solution for replacing missing teeth by providing support, stability, and improved dental health. Trust in the expertise of Incredible Smiles to guide you towards the best dental restoration options, tailored to your unique needs.
