At Enamel Dentistry, we offer everything Manor TX patients need to keep their smiles strong and healthy, including dental crowns and bridges! We understand how missing or damaged teeth can affect your confidence and how you interact with the world, which is why we’re happy to offer a variety of treatment options to help you look and feel your best!
Dental crowns are a minimally invasive way to cover up and protect teeth that have been damaged by decay or oral injuries. We use porcelain dental crowns, which look and feel just like a natural tooth. Crowns are often used when we need to fill a large cavity or to strengthen the structure of a tooth after root canal therapy, but they can also be used for cosmetic purposes, like misshapen or stained teeth. Crowns don’t require any special care – just brush and floss as you normally would.
Crowns can also be used to create a dental bridge to replace missing teeth. A bridge is made of two crowns and a false tooth, which attach to the healthy teeth on either side of the space left by your missing tooth. The bridge keeps the crowns in place so your smile is perfectly restored. Dental crowns and bridges are a great alternative for patients who may not be able to get a dental implant due to bone loss – and they’re less invasive. Partial dentures are also an option, but bridges tend to be more stable and comfortable. They’re also a more cost-effective option for restoring your smile! As with crowns, regular brushing and flossing will keep your dental bridge looking its best, but it’s also important to floss between the gum and the base of the bridge using a soft back and forth motion to remove any plaque buildup.
To find out if a dental crown or bridge is right for you, schedule an appointment with Dr. Chau. She’ll give you an exam, discuss your options, and you’ll have plenty of time to ask questions and learn more about the procedures we offer. From preventive care to restorative dentistry, you’ll find everything you need at our office – plus a friendly team, sweet amenities (can we grab you a beer or some wine?), and an abundance of positive vibes! Our office accepts Medicaid and financing through CareCredit and Compassionate Finance, and we offer a membership plan for Manor TX patients with no insurance. Schedule your appointment today!
