We take lost and damaged teeth very seriously at Capital Dental. Our crowns and bridges provide the restoration results our patients need to smile confidently.
You can turn to Capital Dental for high-quality crowns and bridges in Lincoln, Nebraska. These effective restorations are provided when teeth are lost or severely damaged. Our crowns and bridges look remarkably natural, and they offer much-needed assistance with chewing and speaking. We only use top-quality materials in our crowns and bridges to ensure that these restorations last as long as possible and provide exceptional performance. While losing or damaging tooth is never easy, a new crown or bridge will go a long way towards helping the patient overcome the problem and restoring their quality of life.
Our crowns and bridges will blend in seamlessly with your existing teeth and will function like natural teeth. A patient can expect to make a minimum of two visits when receiving a crown or a bridge. We must first take impressions of their teeth and send the impressions to a dental laboratory. Once the crown or bridge is ready, the patient can return to have it fitted. We will make sure the patient’s bite is unaffected and that the new restoration fits properly.
Dental crowns have multiple applications. The first option is for a crown to be installed over a damaged tooth and “cap” the existing structure. This will effectively restore the damaged tooth so that it can be used normally. Crowns can also be attached to dental implants to replace missing teeth. The implants will be surgically inserted into the jawbone, and they will serve as the root for the tooth. This will keep the new crown steady and secure. Crowns may also be used to provide extra support for dental bridges. Crowns do not require any special treatment, and they can be brushed and flossed just like natural teeth.
Dental bridges are commonly used when a patient has lost one or more teeth. They are called bridges because they consist of one or more replacement teeth that “bridge” the gap that was created when the original teeth became lost. Bridges can be secured using abutment crowns on each end or by using permanently installed precision metal mechanisms. We custom design each component of a bridge to ensure that it looks natural and provides the desired performance.
