Teeth can be damaged by trauma, gum disease or decay. At Lush Family Dental in Waukee, our crowns and bridges can help restore your damaged teeth back to a healthy state both in appearance and function.
Your teeth are susceptible to loss or damage through physical trauma, decay, or severe gum disease. These factors can damage the structure of the teeth and impair their function. Dental crowns and bridges are excellent options to repair the damage and get teeth looking and functioning as they should.
A dental crown (or dental cap) is a tooth-shaped appliance that is placed over a damaged tooth like a cap to cover the damage or decay. It is also used to replace a lost tooth, cover a weak tooth, stop a cracked tooth from further breakage, or to provide support for a tooth with a large filling. In the case of a tooth damaged by trauma or decay, the remaining structure of the tooth serves as a foundation upon which the crown rests.
A dental bridge serves as a link between two teeth separated by a space created by a missing tooth or teeth. The bridge helps to occupy the space between the teeth where there once was a tooth and is held tightly in place by crowns, implants or other devices.
Our crowns and bridges at Lush Family Dental in Waukee are made of porcelain. This material is popular because of its durability and natural look. Traditional porcelain dental crowns and bridges require two visits to our facility. We also offer CEREC restorations which can be custom-made in just one visit.
