Crowns and Bridges
A crown is a dental restoration that completely caps or encircles a single tooth or implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth and are often needed after a tooth has one or more root canal procedures. Crowns are generally bonded to the tooth using a dental cement. Crowns improve the strength or appearance of teeth and look and feel natural.
A bridge is a fixed dental restoration that replaces a missing tooth (or several teeth) by joining an artificial tooth permanently to adjacent teeth or implant. There are different types of bridges and will vary based on how they are attached to adjacent teeth. A dental bridge will rest directly on the gums, and patients who have a dental bridge must be careful to clean around them thoroughly.
Implant crowns are dental crowns that encircle the post of a dental implant. A dental implant fills the void of a missing tooth by using a threaded screw-type rod anchored to the jawbone. This is done in a separate surgical procedure by a dental surgeon. Once the treated area is healed, the implant crown attaches to the threaded rod, much like a screw. Implant crowns look and feel natural and usually last a lifetime. If you are considering an implant crown procedure, make sure to talk to Dr. Wilfong and his team so they may help you achieve beautiful results.
Full and Partial Dentures
When there are many damaged or missing teeth because of oral disease or trauma, dentures are a wonderful way to restoring a great smile. Precision molds created by Wilfong Dental’s skilled experts result in beautiful, natural looking dentures that are hard to detect. Like natural teeth, full or partial dentures require daily brushing and cleaning to keep them looking their best.
When necessary, Dr. Wilfong and his skilled team can perform extractions of damaged teeth that are beyond repair. We use topical and injected anesthetic to minimize discomfort, and work with you to develop a comprehensive plan to restore your smile.
