Porcelain Crowns & Dental Bridges in Miami, FL

If you have damaged teeth that cannot be repaired with fillings, you may want to learn more about dental crowns in Miami, Florida. A dental crown can add volume and strength to a tooth or can be placed on top of an implant to create a new tooth. This type of dental work can improve your bite, restore a broken or chipped tooth, or replace a decaying filling when there isn’t enough tooth left to fill. It can also cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment. Metallic alloys, ceramics, or porcelain can be used to make a dental crown that is long-lasting, and that looks natural and resembles your own teeth. Miami Smile Dental of Miami, Florida offers you the latest in dental crown technology in a comfortable and relaxing setting.

Types of Dental Crowns

There are three basic types of dental crowns, and your dentist can help you choose the one that’s right for you. Crowns that are all metal such as gold or copper alloys and are the strongest. They are best used in situations where the tooth requires strength and durability, but appearance is less of a concern, as in the case of a molar located in the back of the mouth. Crowns that are made from a dental ceramic like porcelain are used when appearance is an issue because they can be made to look more like natural teeth. They are generally not as strong as metal crowns. 

A type of crown that is a combination of the two is the porcelain-fused-to-metal crown,

which is an inner metal layer that fits over the tooth and is then covered with an outer porcelain layer that is fused onto it.

These are stronger than ceramic crowns, but not as strong as metal ones. Miami Smile Dental can help you choose the one that’s right for you.

Dental Bridges in Miami

If you have a missing tooth, you may want to consider dental bridges in Miami, Florida.  Miami Smile Dental offers the latest in dental bridge technology. There are several types of bridges, and we can help you choose the one that best meets your needs. Traditional dental bridges are false teeth, or pontics, that are secured in place with dental crowns that are cemented to the teeth next to your missing tooth. The enamel of the adjacent teeth is removed to prepare for the crowns. Bridges can also be created with a metal framework that holds a pontic in place, or they can be done as implant-supported bridges. These are implants that are placed in series to support a bridge of false teeth. These are strong and natural-looking and can fix the gaps in your smile to give you a more confident, healthy appearance.
