Restore Your Natural Smile with Crowns and Bridges

In the past, if you had a broke, chipped or missing tooth your options were always minimal.  With advancements in dentistry, your dentist in Gaithersburg and Lexington Park, MD can now provide you with improved treatments to restore your natural smile.  Two of the most popular procedures for restoring your smile are the installation of dental crowns or dental bridges. By visiting Fatemi Family Dentistry, we can help you restore your smile once and for all. 
 
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over your damaged tooth to restore its size, shape, strength and appearance. A crown can be used to cover a misshapen or discolored tooth, protect a weak one, restore a broken or chipped tooth, or to support a dental bridge. Once the crown is installed, it will completely cover the visible portion of your tooth above the gum line.
 
While dental crowns are designed to restore teeth that are misshapen, discolored, chipped or broken, a dental bridge is designed to help replace a missing tooth. A dental bridge is made up of an artificial tooth, or teeth, that is anchored on either side by crowns.  To install a bridge, your Gaithersburg and Lexington Park dentist will begin by anesthetizing the area around the bridge and then filing down the two teeth that will receive crowns. Next, he or she will take an impression and send it to a dental lab, where your permanent bridge will be constructed in two to three weeks.
 
If you have a damaged or missing tooth, contact Fatemi Family Dentistry for further diagnosis and treatment planning.  With help from your dentist in both Gaithersburg and Lexington Park, MD, you can restore your natural smile with crowns and bridges.
