Dental Crowns and Bridges for La Mesa and Surrounding Areas.
What is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a cap or covering that encases the entire tooth to protect the root and to restore the tooth’s original shape. Using dental crowns, our team of dental experts in La Mesa, California, can protect and strengthen tooth structure after it has been too damaged to be restored with other types of restorations.
At our La Mesa office, we offer beautiful porcelain crowns to our patients. These porcelain crowns are made with the highest quality materials and perfectly resemble your natural teeth. The porcelain is a tooth colored material that mimics the natural translucence of teeth and looks virtually indistinguishable. Our porcelain crowns are very durable and are custom made for each individual to provide them with perfect occlusion and a natural feel.
Patients may require a dental crown if they have fractured, or broken teeth, or if their tooth has suffered from too much decay or a fractured filling. When a patient gets a root canal, the tooth is typically capped with a crown. We also use crowns in our dental bridge procedures.
What is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is a line of crowns that can be used to replace a missing tooth or group of teeth. Crowns are attached to the teeth adjacent to the gap, and these are used to anchor the crowns in the middle in place and create a dental bridge. Dental bridges are an effective way for patients with missing teeth to get their smile back. Our dental bridges are affordable and will allow patients to eat, smile, and speak again. Our bridges are a fantastic restorative dentistry procedure for our La Mesa patients who want an affordable option for teeth restoration.
