Dental Crowns & Bridges in Brentwood, CA
Over time, your teeth can become damaged. Whether the damage is from normal wear and tear or due to an accident, at Platinum Smiles Family Dentistry, we can help to restore the function and beauty of your smile.
High Quality Dental Crowns
Cracks and chips may compromise the integrity of your tooth. Leaving broken teeth untreated puts them at risk for greater damage or tooth loss. A dental crown can protect your tooth and stabilize it, making it safe and functional again. Brentwood dentist Dr. Huma Bayat is highly skilled when it comes to placing dental crowns for her patients.
What Is a Dental Crown?
Dental crowns, sometimes called caps, are made of either porcelain or a combination of porcelain and metal. They fit over your damaged tooth like a small protective helmet. A crown can prolong the life of your tooth by keeping it safe and covered. When you chew on a dental crown, it absorbs the force from chewing, keeping your natural tooth protected.
Dr. Huma Bayat will prepare your tooth for a crown by removing any decay. She may need to place a filling in your tooth to build up the structure if it has been seriously damaged. That way, your crown will have a base to hold on to.
We will put on a temporary crown, take an impression of your tooth, and send it to the dental lab to create your custom crown. Your crown will match the rest of your teeth so it looks completely natural. Once we receive your permanent crown from the dental lab, Dr. Bayat will permanently bond it to your tooth and make any adjustments necessary for a perfect fit.
Custom Dental Bridges
A dental bridge is one of the most reliable methods of tooth replacement. If you are unable or do not want to have implants, a bridge may be your next best bet to restore your smile.
A dental bridge requires the teeth adjacent to your missing teeth to be prepped with special crowns. In the center will be a pontic crown to replace your missing tooth. It stays in place because it is attached to the other crowns and literally bridges the gap in your teeth.
Our dental bridges are attractive, functional, and natural looking. In addition to being an aesthetic solution to your missing tooth, a dental bridge can help to keep your teeth stable by preventing drifting and tipping, a common problem for people with missing teeth.
