Crowns and bridges composed of porcelain are available from our skilled cosmetic dentists to restore damaged teeth. A crown or bridge can restore a tooth that has been cracked, damaged, or lost due to decay so that the patient can once again eat and smile with confidence.
To make a dental appointment in the Houston metro area, Beaumont, or Corpus Christi, please call 832-804-7427.
To restore a tooth to its natural size and shape, a dentist will typically use a crown (sometimes called a cap). When a tooth's structure cannot be restored with fillings or other restorations, a crown can be used to safeguard and reinforce the tooth.
Porcelain crowns, which closely resemble natural teeth, are the most widely used form of crown. They are built to last for a very long time. Porcelain crowns are designed to look and feel just like your own teeth, down to the shade.
A porcelain bridge is a great option for replacing a missing tooth or teeth. When one or more teeth are missing, the other teeth may shift into the empty space, creating a poor bite and making it difficult to eat and speak normally.
Bridges are fixed in place by either crowns cemented onto the natural teeth on each side of the prosthetic tooth, or by dental implants. With the right maintenance, dental bridges can survive for decades.
Your entire family can visit one of the several Lovett Dental locations in the Greater Houston Region, Beaumont, or Corpus Christi for all of their dental care requirements. Reach out to Lovett Dentistry at 832-804-7427 or visit our website.
