Repair Damaged Smiles with Crowns & Bridges
Cracks, chips, fractures, breaks, big cavities – your teeth can suffer a lot of damage over the years, whether it happens because of injury or decay. Sometimes, these issues can even be too severe for regular fillings or bonding treatments to fix. At Zahner Dental, our doctors and staff can provide your pearly whites with crown and bridge services that can restore full functionality to your bite. From outer damage to full-blown tooth loss, we can effectively and efficiently rejuvenate your oral health with this reliable treatment – just one of several restorative services that are sure to make you smile at our Ellington, CT office.
Same Day Dentistry with CEREC®
The traditional process of having a custom restoration created typically takes two or more appointments. Thankfully, we can simplify this process without sacrificing any of the quality our patients deserve. With CEREC technology, we’re able to eliminate messy physical impressions, uncomfortable temporary restorations, and the long wait – instead, patients have their new dental crown or bridge designed, milled, and placed within their smile over the course of a single appointment.
During the CEREC process, our doctors will create a digital scan of the affected tooth or teeth, using computer-aided design to outline the ideal restoration. Then, this information is sent to the in-house milling unit for creation, which has two milling chambers for maximum convenience and speed. After making any last-minute adjustments to the finished product, all that’s left to do is cement it in place and ensure the patient’s full satisfaction.
When one or more of your teeth suffer an injury such as a crack or fracture, we can use a crown to effectively strengthen the tooth. Crowns protect the tooth from further damage while also improving its appearance. Even better, they restore the tooth’s full function, allowing you to eat and chew comfortably again! We’ll be sure to take detailed notes and impressions of the affected area before the building of your new crown – that way, you’ll get the best fit for your smile here in Ellington.
In order to meet each of our patient’s unique needs, Zahner Dental offers a choice of materials that your crown can be made out of. Drs. Warren, Shawn, and Jonathan Zahner usually recommend all-ceramic restorations for their aesthetic appearance. Crowns can also be used to effectively treat teeth after root canal therapy, as well as serve as anchors for fixed bridges.
For patients who don’t qualify for dental implants but who would like a more durable, permanent tooth replacement option than dentures or partials, bridges can be an effective way to replace unsightly gaps and rejuvenate your smile. This service consists of a single tooth or consecutive replacement teeth that we’ll anchor to your gum line with crowns. Bridges can provide our patients from Ellington and beyond with much-needed sturdiness without having to undergo the invasiveness of a dental implant procedure, and just like crowns, we’ll custom-make them to fit your unique features with the help of detailed notes and impressions. However, you will need two or more adjacent teeth to hold them in place.
