Dental Crowns and Fixed Bridges
Custom-Made Solution for Renewing Your Smile
Are you self-conscious about a cracked, broken, or decayed tooth? Have you lost one or more teeth because of injury or an oral health condition like gum disease or tooth decay? With custom-made dental crowns and fixed bridges, we can help you restore your smile’s structure, strength, and appearance so you can face the world with confidence again.
Dental crowns are designed to fit snugly over a worn or vulnerable tooth. They can be made from porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, and even gold, but our goal is to provide you with the most natural looking restoration possible. When we’re finished with your procedure, we want you to feel comfortable sharing your smile openly and without anxiety.
In most cases, we can design, fit, and place your custom-made crown in just a few short office visits. When your crown is cemented into place, you’ll need to care for it as you would care for one of your natural teeth, with routine brushing and flossing. You should also visit our San Antonio practice every six months for routine cleanings.
If you have a gap in your smile because of one or more missing teeth, Dr. Holland can help you fill that gap with a custom-made dental bridge. Your bridge tooth helps prevent nearby teeth from moving out of their correct position and provides your face with the internal structure necessary for a full, youthful appearance.
A dental bridge is a prosthetic that attaches on one or both sides of a gap in your smile using abutment crowns. In between these crowns is the bridge tooth (known as a pontic). After completing a full oral health assessment, Dr. Holland will recommend the style of bridge that is best suited to your needs. We may also talk to you about treatment with dental implants or a partial denture. With proper care, your bridge may last for up to 10 years.
Call our San Antonio, TX dental practice to learn more about either of these services or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Holland. We’re delighted to offer personalized, restorative care with custom-made crowns and bridges.
