Crowns & Bridges at SF Dental House

 

Crowns and bridges at SF Dental House in Mission District SF are fixed prosthetic devices unlike dentures which are removable. Crowns and bridges at SF Dental House in Mission District San Francisco are cemented onto the existing natural teeth and / or implants, and can only be removed by a dentist.

Under certain conditions, it becomes necessary to replace a damaged tooth and a crown is used to cover it up. It acts like a cap, and besides strengthening the tooth it can be used to improve appearance, shape, and alignment. Porcelain or ceramic crowns are a popular option, as they match the color of your actual teeth to blend in nicely. A crown is recommended by a dentist when a patient needs to: Replace a large filling, remedy tooth decay, protect a tooth from cracking, restore a fractured tooth, cover a dental implant, cover a poorly shaped tooth, and more.

A bridge is recommended when a patient is missing one or more teeth because if the imbalance is left untreated, it may lead to gum diseases and TMJ disorders. Bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth and they cover the space of the missing teeth by being cemented to the surrounding teeth. These remaining natural teeth or implants act as anchors for the bridge.

Before putting in any crowns and bridges, teeth need to be reduced in size so that a crown or bridge can fit over it. After the teeth are reduced to the required size, one of our general dentists at SF Dental House in Mission District SF creates an exact impression mold for the crowns and bridges. After the impression is taken; a team of dentist work together to prepare crowns and bridges to match your teeth. While a permanent crown is being prepared, our Mission District dentist places a temporary crown or bridge on the teeth. Once the permanent crowns and bridges have been prepared, the dentist removes the temporary crown and/or bridge and cements the permanent ones in its place.

Crowns and bridges can last a lifetime if good oral hygiene is practiced. To prevent damage to the new crowns and bridges you should avoid chewing hard foods, candy, and especially ice.

★★★★★ I had a good dentist, but his prices kept increasing which forced me to look closer to home. This dental office is in my neighborhood so I walked in and spoke to the friendly staff. Within a day I had a very reasonable price.
