Crown and Bridge Dental Procedures in Cypress
At Bailey Dental Group, restoring our patients’ smiles is a rewarding achievement. Replacing broken, damaged or missing teeth offers us the perfect opportunity to improve our patient’s daily lives by restoring a damaged or missing tooth with natural seamless restorations. Our crown and bridge procedures provide our Houston patients with attractive, healthy smiles in a caring and gentle manner that they deserve.
What are Crowns and Bridges Made Of?
Crown and bridge restorations are an excellent, minimally invasive solution for patients to regain full dental function in the event of a broken or cracked tooth, or as a long-term alternative to fillings. At our Houston practice, we use high-quality materials to create our crown and bridge restorations, such as:
Porcelain – porcelain closely mimics the appearance of a natural tooth, and porcelain crowns are virtually indistinguishable from other existing teeth. It also reflects light in a similar manner, and restores full dental function.
Zirconia – also referred to as zirconium, zirconia is a very strong material possessing much of the same qualities as a natural tooth. The material is biocompatible and can be altered to blend in with any existing teeth, creating a beautiful, seamless looking smile.
Gold – not just a popular trend, gold crowns are often used for people who are prone to teeth grinding. The metal is durable, long-lasting and easily customized to precisely fit the tooth.
Porcelain fused with zirconia – combining the durability and biocompatible qualities of the two materials, this combination offers a healthy and beautiful smile, especially for those with allergies.
Porcelain fused with metal – the strength of the metal offers stability and durability in this combination. The porcelain offers a very lifelike appearance, while the metal provides core strength and resilience so that patients can use their new teeth with confidence.
While each material has its own unique advantages, we have found restorations made of these materials to be highly-durable, ensuring patients receive functional and beautiful smiles.
