Restore your smile at Brownstown Dental Care with crowns and dental bridges

If you have damaged teeth or a missing tooth, Dr. Benjamin Hanson, an expert dentist serving the Brownstown, MI area, may recommend crowns and bridges as a lasting tooth restoration procedure. Dr. Ben Hanson has helped countless patients just like you restore their complete smile and uses only the latest dental techniques and highest quality materials. 

A dental crown is a great way to restore a tooth that is damaged, weakened, or doesn’t look quite right. This solution can bring back the shape, size, and strength of your tooth while also making it look better.

Are you a candidate for dental crowns or bridges?

patient smiling after crowns and bridge procedure Brownstown, MIDr. Ben might suggest a dental crown if your tooth is badly decayed, cracked, or has had a root canal treatment. He might also recommend a crown to support a dental bridge or cover a dental implant. Whatever the case may be, a crown can be a big help in making your smile feel complete.

If you are undergoing a root canal or receiving dental implants, Dr. Hanson can place a personalized crown over the tooth to rebuild your smile. A crown can also protect a tooth with a large filling or be used for cosmetic reasons to enhance the appearance of a tooth. You must be in good dental health before you can get dental crowns or dental bridges.

If you are missing a tooth and have two healthy teeth on either side of the gap, Dr. Hanson can place a dental bridge between these teeth to restore your smile. The bridge is made of a prosthetic tooth and anchored or attached to healthy teeth to rebuild your bite and create a seamless smile. Bridges can be especially effective for preventing remaining teeth from moving when there is a large gap from a missing tooth between them.

Our Process

Restorations are usually performed with local anesthesia so your teeth, gums and mouth will be completely numb. Patients usually only feel slight tugging and pressure during the crown or bridge placement. Dr. Hanson may need to fit you with a temporary crown or bridge when your restorations are being made in a lab. You will return to the office for the final placement and fitting. As long as you maintain a consistent oral care routine at home, you can expect your dental crowns and dental bridges to last for many years to come.

Your Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Crowns And Bridges

What is a dental crown and why would I need one

As we explain to our patients at the Brownstown Dental Care office in Brownstown, MI, a dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a damaged or weakened tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. The reason why you may have one done is, simply put, “life happens”. And so do dental accidents and emergencies. We find that our patients may need us to create a dental crown if they have a tooth that is severely decayed, cracked, or weakened due to things like a large filling, root canal treatment, or trauma.

What are dental crowns made of?

Dental crowns can be made of different materials such as porcelain, ceramic, metal, or a combination of these materials.

How is a dental crown installed?

We will first prepare your tooth by removing decay or old filling material from previous repairs. Then, we’ll shape the tooth to create room for the crown. An impression of the tooth is taken where we ask you to bite down on a putty-like substance to create a mold. We’ll send that to a dental lab where the crown is custom-made. During your follow-up visit, the crown is bonded to the tooth using a special dental adhesive.

How long do dental crowns last?

Dental crowns can last for many years, but their lifespan depends on several factors such as the material used, oral hygiene habits, and biting forces. On average, dental crowns can last between 5 and 15 years.

What is a dental bridge?

A dental bridge is a prosthetic device that is used to replace one or more missing teeth. It consists of a pontic (false tooth) that is attached to two dental crowns, which are placed on the teeth adjacent to the gap.

How is a dental bridge placed into your mouth?

Dr. Ben will first prepare the two adjacent teeth by removing a portion of their enamel to create room for the dental crowns. Then, an impression of the teeth is taken and sent to a dental lab where the bridge is custom-made. During the second visit, the bridge is bonded to the teeth using a special dental adhesive.

How long do dental bridges last?

Dental bridges can last for many years, but their lifespan depends on several factors such as the material used, oral hygiene habits, and biting forces. On average, dental bridges can last between 5 and 15 years.

Can I eat normally with a dental crown or bridge?

Yes, you can eat normally with a dental crown or bridge, but it is important to avoid hard, sticky, or chewy foods that can damage or dislodge the restoration.

How do I take care of my dental crown or bridge?

You should take care of your dental crown or bridge just like you would take care of your natural teeth. Brush twice a day, floss daily, and visit your dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings. Avoid using your teeth as tools, and wear a mouthguard if you play sports.

You deserve a new beginning.
