Dental Crowns & Bridges in The Woodlands, TX
Patients with struggling with a smile and teeth that are damaged, decayed, or even missing completely experience low self-confidence and inability to enjoy full oral function. These problems worsen over time when left alone. Here in The Woodlands, Dr. Kelly LeBlanc and Dr. Virgil Gutierrez are happy to provide patients quality, custom-made restorations that restore teeth seamlessly. Whether you’re suffering from a minor fracture or multiple empty gaps, crown and bridge tooth replacement can give back the strength and stability you need to smile brighter. Patients from Montgomery and beyond are welcome to contact us today and schedule and appointment.
Dental crowns are designed to “cap” over a natural tooth restoring its structure and strength in a lifelike fashion. Our doctors recommend the placement of one or more crowns if patients are struggling with:
- Tooth decay too significant for filling treatment
- A structural injury or fracture
- General wear and tear
- Concerns with the quality of a patient’s bite
- Cosmetic concerns with the tooth’s shape
Crowns typically require two appointments to be created and placed successfully. One for impressions and the placement of a temporary crown, and one for the placement and adjustment of the new, permanent crown.
We typically recommend dental bridges for patients who are missing one or more teeth in a row, given that there are neighboring healthy teeth located on either side. These teeth are covered by dental crowns, which “anchor” the new bridge in place and create a sturdier result for patients who may be dissatisfied with the relative looseness of traditional dentures.
At Bear Branch Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, our team is proud to primarily offer all-ceramic crowns and bridges for patients who want an ideal blend of oral health and aesthetic-minded benefits.
