Why are Crowns and Bridges offered by Wichita, KS Dentists?

Cosmetic restorations are important for restoring a patient's smile. When tooth loss or dental trauma occurs, patients often seek assistance from their Wichita, KS dentist. Cosmetic and general dentists are able to address imperfections in the smile while restoring one's appearance. When teeth are missing or broken, it is essential to have restorative work done to maintain a beautiful smile.

Two commonly used restorations at East Wichita Dentist are crowns and bridges. Dental crowns and bridges are both made of porcelain, but this is where the similarities end.

Dental crowns are used primarily for protection. If a patient has a broken or chipped tooth, a dental crown may be placed to keep it from experiencing further breakage. If a patient has undergone root canal therapy, a dentist places a dental crown on top to provide strength to the tooth. In some instances, dental crowns are used to replace missing teeth. They are placed over dental implants to act as a false tooth and restore the cosmetics and the functionality of a patient's smile.

Dental bridges are typically used for replacing missing teeth. When a tooth has been extracted or lost, dental bridges can be fabricated to fill the gap. Dental bridges are composed of two dental crowns and one or more pontics (false teeth) bonded together, they use the surrounding teeth for support. Bridges are made to match the color, shape, and overall appearance of a patient's existing teeth to blend in and look cosmetically appealing in the patient's smile.

Patients considering dental bridges or crowns through their Wichita, KS dentist are happy to learn that the team at East Wichita Dentist uses CEREC technology to create same-day restorations. Many other dental practices send impressions to an outside laboratory for the creation of these restorations, which can take weeks and require more than one appointment. Instead, East Wichita Dentist offers in-house restorations that can be completed during the same appointment and are just as beautiful and strong as laboratory-created pieces.

    Such an amazing dental office! The staff is so nice and welcoming. I felt right at home. They used sedation dentistry on me and it took all the fear from me and it didn't even hurt. I have never met a dental office that is so easy to talk to! Love them
