If you’re struggling with a tooth that’s damaged, weakened, or entirely gone, rest assured that you don’t have to settle for this new “normal.” A custom restoration can help rebuild what was lost, returning much-needed form, function, and aesthetic appearance to your smile. Here in Calimesa, Dr. Scott Parker is happy to design high-quality dental crowns and bridges for patients that fit right into place alongside natural teeth. Better yet, we primarily offer metal-free, all-ceramic materials for a seamlessly natural appearance! Contact us today to schedule your first appointment with our team. Patients from Cherry Valley, CA and other nearby areas are always welcomed.
Dental crowns are designed to completely cover the remaining structure of a single tooth, helping to preserve it while also replenishing its natural shape and strength. There are several situations where Dr. Parker is likely to recommend a new crown, including:
The process of having a new dental crown created typically takes two appointments – one for the initial impressions and the placement of a temporary restoration, and a follow-up visit for the placement of the permanent version.
Dental bridges can be very helpful in situations where a patient has lost one or more consecutive teeth in a row along a single arch. This prosthetic is sturdily anchored in place with the help of additional dental crowns that fit over nearby healthy teeth, creating a permanent replacement that many people prefer when compared to the relative “looseness” of removable dentures. For even greater health and aesthetic benefits, our team strongly recommends an implant-retained dental bridge/denture.
