Aesthetic Crowns & Bridges
If you have broken or missing teeth, you know how annoying and uncomfortable they can be. When your teeth don’t function properly, it can be challenging to enjoy healthy, nutritious foods, and you may feel self-conscious enough to want to hide your smile.
At Blissful Dental Spa, our goal is to personalize your dentistry by focusing on your individual needs and desires. Dr. Chinara Garraway enjoys the art and science of creating natural-looking dental crowns and bridges at our Tallahassee dental office that improve your oral health and let you smile confidently again.
She loves getting to know our patients and will take the time to learn about your concerns and goals. By evaluating all of your needs, Dr. Garraway can develop a treatment plan that makes the most sense for you.
Strengthen Your Teeth with Dental Crowns
Our aesthetic dental crowns are an essential restoration because they allow us to preserve the structure of a tooth damaged by decay, infection, or trauma. A crown, sometimes called a cap, is designed like a little helmet that fits over your tooth to protect it and restore its function and appearance.
Most of our patients at Blissful Dental Spa prefer all-ceramic crowns because they look natural. We will further customize your crown to mimic the contours and color of your natural tooth to blend seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
Dental crowns are a versatile restoration that serves many purposes:
- Strengthens a tooth with extensive decay
- Protects teeth worn by grinding or erosion
- Strengthens a tooth after root canal treatment
- Restores a dental implant
- Protects cracked or fractured teeth
You can expect the process of placing your crown to take place over two or three visits. During the first visit, Dr. Garraway reshapes your tooth slightly so that your new crown will fit correctly. Next, we create a model for the dental lab by taking impressions of your teeth. We use the model to prepare your temporary crowns, then send it to our dental technicians to fabricate your new restoration.
Creating your crown takes about two weeks. When we receive it back from the lab, you will return to our Tallahassee dental office so we can adjust it for fit and cement it securely in place. The result is a stronger, healthier tooth that restores chewing function and enhances your smile.
Aesthetic Bridges Replace Missing Teeth
A gap in your smile is unattractive, makes chewing and speaking a challenge, and can undermine your self-confidence. However, a bridge designed at Blissful Dental Spa will restore the bite, improve your oral health, and bring balance and harmony to your smile.
Dr. Garraway typically recommends a dental bridge for the following reasons:
- Fill the gap left by a missing tooth
- Prevent surrounding your teeth from drifting
- Provide an alternative to a removable partial denture
We secure the bridge in place by anchoring it to healthy adjacent teeth, which holds it securely in place. However, in some cases, Dr. Garraway may recommend using a dental implant for added stability.
