Crown & Bridges in Virginia Beach

Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. Whether you are talking, eating, or laughing, your teeth affect how you are perceived. But you do not have to let missing or damaged teeth stop you from going about your everyday routine with confidence. With crowns and bridges from the dentist at our office, you can gain many reasons to smile. For example, when you have missing teeth, your jaw structure and appearance change, even if your mouth is closed and your teeth are concealed. A dental bridge fills out your face, and makes it easier to speak and eat.

But crowns and bridges are not just simple cosmetic fixes. While they do improve your overall appearance, they can also assist with eating and resolving tooth pain. Allow our family dentists to assess the state of your teeth and provide the right treatment for any weak, damaged, discolored, decayed or broken teeth. The caps that cover your teeth are always made to perfectly suit your mouth, and they look natural. You have a number of options in choosing a dental crown or bridge. We take the time to discuss every option with you so you can choose the best solution for your situation.

At our dentist’s office, we understand that many people are uncomfortable with getting procedures done, even if those procedures do help improve our patients’ quality of life. That’s why we take the time to educate our patients about every step of the process. Every aspect of our practice centers around your comfort. With more than 25 years’ experience in dentistry, we know what it takes to provide the best chairside manner to improve your overall experience at our office.


How We Create Your Custom Crown

After we have determined that crowns are a right choice for you, we then perform a thorough examination of your teeth. Afterward, we give you an anesthetic. This makes preparing the damaged tooth for its new crown a bit easier. It also keeps you comfortable throughout the rest of the process. In some instances, we have to file down the tooth in question to accommodate the crown. In other cases, it needs to be built up, or else the crown won’t fit. Then we make a 3-D video image of your tooth that goes to our in-office lab, and your crown is made within a short time. No longer do you have to wear a temporary and come back to have your crown placed.

The Dental Bridge Creation Process

Let our experienced dentists replace your missing tooth or teeth with a dental bridge. A bridge differs from a crown in that it uses teeth that are adjacent to the damaged tooth for stability. The procedure begins with preparing the teeth on both sides of the bridge with crowns. The next step involves our dentists making impressions of those teeth for the dental lab. A temporary bridge is put into place until the permanent one arrives. Once it does, our dentists check that it fits properly and then cements it into place.

Our process includes employing the tooth-colored ceramic material that actually bonds to your new tooth. This makes it strong and natural looking.
