Bridges & Crowns can enliven your smile
Dr. Cakmes will identify your specific dental restoration needs and find a solution that best suits you. Let us help restore your smile and dental health with a custom dental crown or bridge.
At Cakmes Dental Studio, we’re committed to your dental health, whether you need a routine checkup and cleaning or a more complex dental restoration, like a crown or bridge. Dr. Cakmes, along with our staff, will identify your specific dental and oral health needs and work with you to find a solution that best suits you.
What are bridges?
Bridges are most commonly used to replace missing teeth and fill in gaps that could cause surrounding teeth to shift. Bridges can also help prevent:
Overbites or underbites caused by missing teeth
Movement of surrounding teeth
Disorders brought on by missing teeth (gum disease, temporomandibular joint (TMJ), infection, etc.)
During a bridge procedure, Dr. Cakmes places the bridge in the space where teeth are missing, using the teeth nearest the gap as anchors. Like with crowns, bridges can be made of many different materials.
What are crowns?
Crowns, cap-like dental prosthetics, can be used for a variety of reasons, most of which include protecting or restoring teeth. Our practice recommends crowns for patients who may have:
A tooth needing its structure, shape and size restored
A tooth that is broken or at risk of breaking
A bridge needing attached
A degraded or damaged tooth that requires a large filling
Tooth/teeth needing other cosmetic improvements, like color and alignment
We proudly offer traditional crowns in addition to the innovative Cerec (CERamic REConstruction) technology to create custom crowns. While a conventional crown offers several restorative benefits, the procedure requires more than one visit. Cerec allows us to enhance your smile and repair damage in just one appointment.
