Dental Crown or Dental Bridge Which one is right for you?
Damaged or decayed teeth that are still intact could be a sign that a dental crown may be right for you.
If your tooth is missing, but is surrounded by other tooth structures, a bridge could be the right solution.
Schedule an office consultation with A Plus Dental Smiles of Lakeland / Lakelands Dentist Dr. An Nguyen to determine whether you could benefit from dental crowns or dental bridges.
What should I expect when I have my dental crown or dental bridge placed?
If a dental crown or dental bridge is the right choice for you, your teeth will be reshaped to ensure a proper fit. An impression of your bite will be taken and used to create a mold for the dental crown or dental bridge. If you are choosing porcelain, its color will be matched to the natural shade of your other teeth. If a dental lab is making your crown or bridge, you may be fitted with a temporary dental crown or dental bridge until the permanent one is ready for placement.

Are there any post-treatment directions that I should follow?
Healing following the crown and bridge placement process will take some time, so it is normal for you to experience some sensitivity – especially to different temperatures (hot and cold). Additionally, you may experience gum soreness surrounding your new crown or bridge, though this is usually manageable with an over the counter pain reliever such as ibuprofen and should go away within a few days.
