Crown & Bridge Treatment For A Confident New Smile

At Strickland Family Dentistry in Sarasota, our team is proud to offer patients crown and bridge treatment, to both replace one or more missing teeth, and to cover and strengthen one or more teeth that have been weakened by injury, decay, or grinding-related issues.

What is a dental crown?

A prosthetic covering that caps the entire surface area of a damaged tooth, dental crowns can be made from a variety of materials including ceramic, porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM), gold alloy, and zirconia. Once in place, they strengthen and shield a damaged tooth, protecting against bacteria, decay, plaque, and tartar.

What is a dental bridge?

A dental bridge is a prosthetic that consists of a pontic (a false tooth) and one or more dental crowns that are anchored to the teeth that surround an extraction site.

How are crowns and bridges placed?

After your examining your teeth, gums, and jawbone density to confirm your candidacy, we’ll prepare your “anchor” teeth by removing any decay and reshaping the teeth. Impressions will then be taken of your mouth, which we’ll use to create a custom-made appliance. We’ll place a temporary crown while your permanent restoration is created, and once the latter is ready, we’ll place the restoration and adjust as needed to ensure it looks and feels great.

What are the benefits of crowns and bridges?

Crowns and bridges can restore the appearance of your smile by blending in seamlessly with your surrounding teeth. They can also help prevent further damage from occurring in teeth that have been weakened by injury, erosion, or decay, and they help keep surrounding teeth from shifting out of position in the process.
