A dental crown is an ideal solution used to save and protect a damaged or unhealthy tooth. When you have a severely decayed, fractured, or missing tooth, Dr. Cascante will choose the type of crown best suited to meet your specific needs. Most the time, Dr. Cascante chooses to place porcelain metal-free crowns based on their strong functionality and very lifelike appearance, however porcelain fused to metal, and all-metal options such as gold is also available. Once complete, your crown will look as pretty and function as naturally as they did prior to any mishaps.

If one or several consecutive teeth are completely missing, Dr. Cascante may recommend a bridge. A dental bridge works to camouflage the space left by missing teeth by utilizing the two teeth on either side of the missing tooth. Each supporting tooth is crowned, and depending on the number of teeth being replaced, will support a suspending series of additional crowns to act as your new teeth.
During a crown or bridge treatment, it’s important to Dr. Cascante that your restoration looks and functions as naturally as possible. To accomplish this, our dentist and lab communicate through electronic images, shade guides and more.
