Crown & Bridge in Las Vegas, NV

Crown & Bridge in Las Vegas, NV

Dental crowns and bridges are restorative appliances that improve and restore the health of your mouth, oral function, or appearance. They are permanently attached to existing teeth or implants and cannot be removed. At Mark J. Escoto, DDS in Las Vegas, NV 89117, we provide natural-looking crowns and bridges to reinstate your oral functions and smile aesthetics.  

What Is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a custom-fabricated cap designed to fit over a damaged or decayed tooth. It is functional, allowing you to eat normally without getting damaged. There are several reasons a crown may be recommended, including:

  • Protect a weakened tooth 
  • Restore a broken or decayed tooth
  • Support a dental bridge
  • Replace a filling if there isn't sufficient  existing tooth remaining
  • Cover a poorly formed or misshapen tooth
  • Improved cosmetic aesthetics
  • Strengthen a tooth that's had a root canal

How Is a Dental Crown Made?

First, Dr. Mark J. Escoto will reduce the size of the tooth so that the crown will fit over it. Then impressions are taken to fabricate the crown in a dental lab. Once the crowns are ready, they will be permanently attached using dental adhesives. The result is a functional and natural-looking crown.

What Is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge can replace a single tooth or several missing teeth. If you have a space caused by missing teeth, the bridge is used to fill in the void. The bridge is attached to your existing teeth for permanent placement.

A dental bridge is an excellent option to restore your smile's natural function and appearance if you have lost teeth due to cavities, illness, or trauma. If you lose a tooth, the adjoining teeth on both sides may loosen or begin to shift into the gap. This may lead to loss of function and additional tooth loss.

How Are Bridges Made?

For a bridge placement, your teeth on either side of the gap are reduced in size. If the teeth are too weak to hold a bridge in position, you may need dental implants. An impression of the prepared teeth is captured to fabricate your bridge restoration. Porcelain or composites are used to create new teeth. Your bridge can also be color-matched for a comfortable fit and natural smile. The bridge is permanently fastened to the prepared teeth, filling the gap and restoring your smile. 

Caring for Your Dental Crown or Bridge

Crowns and bridges require efficient dental care to ensure their longevity and health. A bridge restoration may fail if you develop gum infections or decay of the teeth around it. Do not forget to schedule routine dental exams and cleanings. With adequate oral care, your dental prosthetics can last a lifetime.
