If you wish to have an extreme smile makeover (all crowns or veneers) we need you for only a few visits to the clinic within the same week. You can change completely the way you look after just 8 days in beautiful Cancun!
Crowns & Bridges are used to repair any damaged or missing teeth. They are used to maintain a proper occlusion, and a great looking smile while you restore all basic biting functions.
With porcelain crowns or porcelain bridges, we can create a complete smile makeover, a “Hollywood Smile” in less than 8 days and give you a complete new look, repairing any decay below while you will also look 10 years younger.
What Are Crowns For Teeth?
Crowns are a type of dental restoration which, when cemented into place, fully cup over the portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.
Dental crowns encase the entire visible aspect of a tooth, becoming the tooth’s new outer surface and are an ideal way to rebuild broken teeth, or teeth weakened by decay or by large fillings. The crown will fit right over the remaining part of the tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape and contour of a natural tooth.
Crowns are sometimes also known as “caps”. Crowns are made of porcelain and porcelain fused to metal.
Why Would You Need A Crown?
- The tooth may have been weakened by having a very large filling
- You may have discolored fillings and would like to improve the appearance of the tooth
- You may have had a root filling which will need a crown to protect it
- You may have had an accident and damaged the tooth
- It may help hold a bridge or denture firmly in place
Your crown isn’t noticeable. The crown will be made to match your other teeth exactly. The shade of the neighboring teeth will be recorded, to make sure that the color will match when the crown is prepared and thus looks like the original teeth.
What are Veneers?
Veneers are layers of porcelain (or other material) that are placed over the outer surface of a tooth to improve its looks. They are glued to the teeth with the help of strong cements that can last for a very long time. Veneers might need to be changed (every so often) for physical reasons like tooth grinding, discoloration, chipping or cracking.
In what cases are veneers recommended?
Veneers are ideal for teeth that have a prematurely aged appearance, look too small, or there is a big aesthetic flaw that needs to be corrected without the use of orthodontics.
The preparation for veneers consists of shaving down the front of the tooth to place the layer cover, unlike with full crown replacements where the whole tooth is worn down to the dentin to place the porcelain crown. This procedure still has a small chance of causing increased sensitivity on the tooth.
What is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is used to span, or bridge a gap (missing teeth) between teeth. Same as with crowns, teeth on either side of the empty space are reshaped.
A dental bridge is a false tooth or teeth, which is fused between two porcelain crowns to fill in the area left by a missing tooth or teeth. This is known as a fixed bridge.
A bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. Fixed bridges cannot be taken out of your mouth as you might do with removable partial dentures.
In areas of your mouth that are under less stress, such as your front teeth, a cantilever bridge may be used. Cantilever bridges are used when there are teeth on only one side of the open space. Bridges can reduce your risk of gum disease and help correct some bite issues. Bridges require your best effort to keep an optimum oral hygiene, and can last as long as ten years or more.
How do I know if I need a crown or veneer?
Crowns are suggested o necessary when:
- Patients with bruxism (this is when you grind your teeth, you may or may not be conscious of this)
- After a root canal.
- The resin or amalgam is huge, and 3 or 4 surfaces of the teeth are broken.
- The bite is very strong (males in most cases)
- A tooth is in a severe mal position and the patient wants to change it for aesthetic reasons.
Veneers are suggested o necessary when:
- The tooth has stains on the frontal surface.
- The tooth is broken on one corner.
- There is a space in between each tooth.
- You want to change the color or shape of your teeth.
- When a tooth is in a slightly off position and the patient wants to change it for aesthetic reasons.
- When there is teeth crowding.
If after some time of wearing my crowns or veneers I don’t like them anymore and I want to remove or change them, will my natural teeth be they way they used to be?
You can change your crowns and veneers to a different color, shape, or size. Your natural teeth must have something covering it; because the teeth have already worn down to fit the crown or veneer.
Does the color change with the time?
The porcelain doesn’t change color by itself. Habits like smoking, drinking red wine, coffee, etc. can cause some stains over the surface of the porcelain. That’s why we recommend that every 6 months you have a dental cleaning done and get a check up.
What is the difference between crowns and veneers?
The main difference is in how much the tooth will be covered. Crowns cover all around the tooth and veneers only cover the frontal surface of the tooth and ¼ of the back part in order to give more retention to the veneer.
|Q: How long will my crown last?||A:The life of a crown will depend on how well it is looked after, oral hygiene is a must. The crown itself cannot decay. Properly cared for, your crowns will last for many years.|
|Q: How can I calculate the cost of a bridge?||A: Bridges are charged just as unit crowns.|
For example, if you need a 3 unit bridge (a 3 tooth bridge) you will be charged as if it were 3 crowns. We have 3 types of crowns. 6 layer, 9 layer or 14 layer porcelain crowns.
