Crowns and Bridges in Los Gatos, CA
At Los Gatos Family Dentistry, we believe that everyone deserves to enjoy the innumerable advantages of a complete set of healthy teeth. Unfortunately, life often surprises us with the unimaginable; losing a permanent tooth is one of these unexpected hardships. If you have lost one or more teeth in the same area of your mouth, Dr. Phan may recommend a crown and bridge restoration to rebuild your smile and your bite.
Why Choose Crown & Bridgework?
Your teeth fit perfectly together like the pieces of a puzzle, allowing you to chew and speak properly without a second thought. In the absence of even a single tooth, your entire bite becomes unstable and the composition of your jaw begins to change. Teeth shift out of proper alignment in order to more effectively bear the forces of chewing, and the potential for periodontal disease is significantly heightened. Regardless of the location of the empty tooth socket, every other component of your dentition is negatively affected.
In order to replace your missing teeth and keep your remaining teeth in their proper places, Dr. Phan may recommend the placement of a dental bridge secured by crowns. Crown and bridge treatment involves the placement of a secure row of prosthetic teeth (called pontics) between two other teeth on either side. The teeth that flank the gap on each side are carefully prepared and capped with custom crowns; these crowns hold your bridge in place, flush against the gum. Crown and bridge treatment benefits patients who are missing between one and three teeth in a row.
Contemporary restorative dentistry makes it possible to receive the crown and bridgework you need without sacrificing aesthetic appeal. Dr. Phan focuses on making sure that her patients are left with radiant, healthy smiles that look completely natural; no one has to know that you once lived with missing teeth with the help of our state-of-the-art restorative technology.
