Crowns and Bridges

Dental Crowns Little Elm - Teeth

Crowns and bridges are restorations custom made for individual patients as needed for tooth repair or replacement.

Dental crowns

A dental crown is a restoration designed for the repair of a tooth that has become weakened. Teeth that are treated with root canal therapy are often covered with dental crowns, as their overall structure can become brittle. Extensive damage due to a fractured amalgam filling or a large cavity may require the protection that comes from a dental crown. Dr. Suri designs crowns from impressions of your tooth structure and works with a reputable laboratory in which crowns are made from the highest quality materials. The final product is ready for placement in about two weeks and will look and feel very natural.

Bridges

The dental bridge is a prosthetic used for tooth replacement. Tooth loss is a problem that is important to address, and bridgework provides the quick, affordable improvement many of our patients seek. Many people find the greatest benefit from a fixed bridge. This restoration is custom made in our dental lab using impressions of your teeth as a guide. In the lab, three or more individual artificial teeth are fused together. At the outer edges are dental crowns with a pontic, or artificial tooth between them. When the two crowns are fitted over the teeth on each side of the empty space in the mouth, the pontic will sit securely in the gap.

Both crowns and bridges can last for many years with good care. Patients of Frisco Elm Dental are encouraged to brush and floss every day, taking care around the gum line. Routine dental care is also an important part of the longevity of restorations. Because your crown or bridge enhances your smile and helps you chew, this restoration is an important aspect of your confidence, your comfort, and your sense of wellbeing. Understanding this, we pay close attention to detail throughout our treatment process.

Investing in your smile

Dental care may not be something that fits easily into every person's budget. This is not an area, though, where you want to skimp. When restoration is needed, you want to know that you can rely on the work performed for many years. Crowns and bridges must be properly made with excellent materials in order to withstand the force of biting and chewing. The cost of a dental crown may be as little as $700, while bridgework tends to run about $1700 or more.

At Frisco Elm Dental, we pride ourselves on offering outstanding dental care at competitive prices. Restorations are made with high noble metals known for their long lasting strength, making them the most cost-effective option. Additionally, the use of high noble metals is beneficial to teeth and gums.

When facing dental repairs, remember that you are making an investment into the health and appearance of your smile. We are happy to discuss with you our options for flexible payments.

Enjoy your healthiest, happiest smile. Call Frisco Elm Dental to schedule your appointment with our friendly staff.
