Dental Crowns & Bridges in Potomac, MD
One reason why the dentist might recommend crowns or bridges would be to restore and repair teeth that have been severely damaged, can’t be saved and need replacing. When accidents happen, and a tooth or several teeth have been severely damaged, sometimes it is hard to save your natural teeth, and you might have to have them replaced
When this is the case, dental crowns and dental bridges might be the best solution for you.
Dental Crowns Potomac, MD
Considering dental crowns in Potomac, MD? Porcelain crowns are placed on top of the damaged tooth and act as a cap that will fix and reshape the size and appearance of your tooth. Here at Potomac Crown Dentistry in North Potomac, MD, we only use porcelain to make the dental crowns. There are several materials used to make dental crowns, like metal crowns, but we believe in offering our patients the best service, and we believe that porcelain crowns are better for the good being of our patients.
Studies have shown that metal crowns do not bond completely to the cusp or the tooth, which can create space for bacteria to develop and create further problems in the future. However, porcelain crowns fully bond with the tooth and forms a strong bond that strengthens your tooth at the same time as fixing the appearance.
Dental Bridges Potomac, MD
Interested in dental bridges in Potomac, MD? Dental Bridges are also another great solution if you are looking at teeth replacement treatments. Dental bridges create a bridge between your natural teeth and the gap left by the missing teeth. Two dental crowns are placed on top of your teeth, which act as pillars that hold the dental bridge to place the implant in the gap by securely being held in place by the bridge.
When there are gaps in your mouth from missing teeth, and it is left untreated, your adjacent teeth have room to move around and shift positions. This can cause a misaligned bite that can cause damage in the future.
These two procedures can dramatically improve the look of your smile and restore functionality to your bite. Don’t wait any longer and call us today to book your appointment – call (301) 359-1600, or visit us at 11908 Darnestown Road, Suite A, North Potomac, MD 20878.
