If you’re suffering from a damaged or missing tooth, our Loftus Family Dental team might recommend a Crown or a Bridge.
Missing or damaged teeth can damage your confidence when it comes to your smile. One worn or cracked tooth can make daily activities like eating painful and unpleasant. Post Falls Dental Crowns and Bridges are classic elements of dental restoration, and they still prove effective and efficient in taking care of the most common dental issues.
A Dental Crown, or cap, is a restoration that is often used to restore a significantly damaged or decayed tooth. The Crown is custom made to fit over the entire tooth, starting at the gum line, in order to restore the tooth to its original shape and size.
Dental Crowns can be made of gold, porcelain, or porcelain fused to metal; porcelain Crowns are popular because they match the natural color and appearance of your teeth. Our Dentist will help you determine which type of Dental Crown is right for you.
If you are missing a number of teeth in a row, we may recommend a Dental Bridge. A Bridge is a fixed dental device, making it is non-removable.
The Dental Bridge is anchored in place through the use of two custom crafted Dental Crowns placed on the teeth or Dental Implants on either side of the gap. These Crowns hold the Bridge in place to repair your smile, ensuring that your restoration will not easily shift or come loose.
It typically requires only two visits to our practice to complete the Dental Bridge. Dental Bridges are designed to last for many years and to restore the function, beauty, and health of your smile.
