Dental crowns are designed to fit over a single tooth, covering its shape with a strong replacement that looks and acts just like the real thing. Dr. Hodges may recommend having a dental crown created and placed if you’re experiencing the following issues:
- Significant tooth decay
- An injured/broken tooth
- A weakened tooth that has a high risk of fracturing
- A tooth with cosmetic flaws
- A tooth that’s been treated with root canal therapy
- A dental implant in need of restoration
The dental crown process typically takes two to three appointments. Once we’ve determined that this restorative option is right for you in Fort Walton Beach or Pensacola, Dr. Hodges or his associate prepare the tooth and take impressions for the dental laboratory, placing a temporary restoration in the interim. Once they send back the finished restoration, we’ll make any last-minute adjustments to ensure the perfect fit and cement it in place.
Dental bridges are designed to replace one or more missing teeth in a row. Additional crowns are placed on either side of the prosthetic, designed to attach over nearby healthy teeth as “anchors” that keep it firmly in place. Patients who’ve found themselves unhappy with the looseness of traditional dentures may prefer bridges because of this additional stability. Like dental crowns, the creation and placement of a bridge usually takes two to three appointments at Hodges Dental Clinics.
