Bridges, Caps, & Crowns in Miami, FL
Elite Dental Group, our trained dentists in Miami offer a number of reparative dental. If
you have damaged or decayed teeth, we offer a variety of services to restore
your smile. We can improve the functionality and strength of your teeth.
Our restorative dental options include:
Dental bridges are typically used as an option to replace a single missing
tooth. If you have a tooth extracted or have an existing gap in your teeth,
a bridge can be placed on the teeth on either side of the space.
Caps, also known as dental crowns, are typically used when a tooth is either
heavily decayed, has undergone root canal therapy, contains a large restoration,
or is for cosmetic purposes. Crowns typically involve removing a greater
amount of the tooth than veneers and regular fillings.
Our office provides all ceramic (IPS Empress) crowns for anterior teeth
in order to provide our patients with optimal aesthetics. For posterior
teeth, we use the newly-designed, all-zirconium (Bruxzir) crowns for their
excellent durability and natural appearance.
The Dental Crowns and Caps Process:
The procedure involved in replacing teeth with dental crowns typically
requires two visits to our dental office in Miami. In the first visit,
one of our Miami dental crowns specialists will help select the shade
or color that best matches your natural teeth. Following shade selection,
the damaged tooth will be prepared and a mold of your mouth will be created
at our dental lab. A temporary crown will be then placed on the prepared tooth.
Once our dental lab has created the permanent and customized crown, a second
appointment will be scheduled. At this time, the final crown will be fixed
to your tooth to ensure proper fit and aesthetics, and then cemented and
finished. Once the process is complete, our patients are able to leave
confidently with a new, strong, durable, and aesthetic restoration.
