Restore Your Smile with a Crown or Dental Bridge in Benbrook

Do I need a crown or a dental bridge in Benbrook?It’s amazing how excited you still get whenever you decide to eat at Whataburger. You’ve been going there your entire life, and you still know, hands down, that it’s the best fast food in the world. Pulling up to the iconic orange and white building just fills you with anticipation. Whataburger has aged so well over time; it’s barely changed as the world around it has completely morphed. You wish the same could be said for your teeth. Perhaps some are decayed, cracked, or even missing. Regardless, time has not been kind, and you want to get them fixed, but how? You can now restore your smile and make it last for decades with a dental crown or dental bridge in Benbrook. 

Dental Crowns

Whenever one of your teeth has become extensively damaged due to decay or injury, the structure needs to be restored so it can function and look normally. This not only helps your appearance, but also protects the tooth from breaking down further and needing to be extracted.

One of the most reliable ways to do this is with dental crowns in Benbrook. A crown is like a cap and fits over your remaining tooth in order to repair it. A crown can be made of metal, porcelain, or a combination of both. Each material has its particular advantages, and is best suited for specific teeth. Dr. Givan will be able to advise you which material is best suited for you.

The procedure to get a crown is entirely painless and takes just two stress-free visits to the office.  Crowns can be maintained just like your natural teeth, and can last for decades with routine brushing and flossing.

Fixed Bridges

Dr. Givan can even replace your missing teeth using a dental bridge. They work by using the teeth on either side of the gap left in your smile to support a prosthetic (or pontic) tooth. This pontic tooth simply sits on top of your gums and looks completely natural. Depending on the condition of the two supporting teeth, they may need to be capped with crowns so they can provide the proper hold. If you don’t have enough dental structure for a bridge, they can also be supported by dental implants, which involve a small metal post being implanted into your jaw that is topped with a porcelain crown. The can be made to be removable or fixed, depending on your wants and needs.

Bridges are one of the quickest and easiest ways to bring back your missing teeth. You can get one in as little as two visits, and it doesn’t require surgery or healing time like dental implants. For people who want to get their smile restored now, bridges are the way to go.

Any Questions?

Your smile deserves to be complete. It’s been too long since you’ve felt completely confident and worry-free about it, and it’s time to change that. Dental crowns and bridges can give you the peace of mind you have been missing, so if you’re ready to show the world a new smile, make an appointment with us today.
