Crown and Bridge in Campbell, California
With regular preventive dental visits, our hope is that you can avoid the damage that leads to the need for restoration with dental crowns or bridges – but sometimes, accidents happen. Even if you take excellent care of your teeth, injury can cause a tooth to break or be lost, and if this happens, we encourage you to visit Dr. Karen Ho in Campbell, California.
Dental crowns can be used to restore a severely decayed, damaged, or broken tooth to its natural size, shape, function, and appearance. A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that fits over your natural tooth once the damaged pieces have been removed and reshaped. Because the crowns are made from natural-looking porcelain, you don’t have to sacrifice appearance for improved oral health and function.
Crowns can also be used to hold a fixed bridge in place. A bridge is a custom-made set of one or more teeth in a row; it’s used to fill in unsightly gaps. Unlike removable dentures, a fixed bridge is just that – fixed in place for greater stability and confidence. The crowns located on both ends of the replacement teeth are bonded to your natural teeth.
We work with a dental lab that creates strong and attractive porcelain crowns and bridges. You don’t have to worry that the results won’t be completely natural looking; we can modify the shade and shape of your crowns or bridge to make sure that your smile maintains its unique appearance. You don’t have to sacrifice any of your personality to get the dental care you need for a fully functional and healthy smile!
