Make Your Smile Whole Again, Conveniently and Affordably
It can be difficult to eat or speak comfortably with damaged, decayed or otherwise failing/missing teeth. Damaged or decayed teeth frequently cause sensitivity or pain, while a gap can cause an array of issues, including a painful change in your bite. As for emotional repercussions, even the most confident people may feel self-conscious due to chipped or cracked teeth. If you have a damaged tooth, including one with a failing filling that compromises most of the tooth structure, tooth extraction isn’t always a necessity! If the roots and interior of the tooth are healthy, the tooth is worth saving with a dental crown—a porcelain or zirconia tooth cap that fits seamlessly over a natural modified tooth. And when the pulp is infected, a root canal followed by a crown can often save the tooth and restore its function and aesthetics. If you have chipped, cracked or broken teeth, Smile 360 Implant and Family Dentistry is your go-to place for dental crowns in Riverview, FL. And if you’re missing a tooth, our dentist Dr. Matthew Byars can create a dental bridge to fully restore your smile function and aesthetics and prevent adjacent teeth from shifting and impacting your oral health.
All About Traditional Crowns and Bridges
During the dental crown process, your tooth is filed down and reshaped to accommodate the crown. Any decay is removed, and the structure is restored to support the tooth crown. A customized dental bridge in Riverview, FL consists of a false tooth (pontic tooth) to fill the gap with supporting crowns on each side. Traditional dental crowns and bridges require a minimum of two appointments. During the first visit, impressions are taken of the damaged tooth with a dental putty that takes about five minutes to set. Dr. Byars creates a functional temporary crown from resin that you’ll wear until the final crown is ready. A big benefit of getting a crown or bridge at Smile 360 Implant and Family Dentistry is that restorations aren’t sent out because we have an on-site dental lab. Dr. Byars and our lab technician work closely together to ensure your new dental bridge or crown is superbly crafted and fits perfectly.
Enjoy the Benefits of Our In-House Technology
Thanks to Dr. Byars’ commitment to investing in technology to benefit his patients, we also offer same-day crowns and bridges in Riverview, FL. Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC®) eliminates the waiting, hassle, and uncomfortable process that traditional crowns and bridges require. Developed originally in 1985, CEREC same-day crowns and bridges in Riverview, FL offer many advantages compared to traditional lab-fabricated crowns.
CEREC is an excellent option for many people who are looking to quickly restore their smile with beautiful, long-lasting results. While you sit in the dental chair in our spa-like office, Dr. Byars takes digital impressions of your tooth with an intraoral scanner. These precision scans provide a 3D foundation to virtually design your new dental crown. Next, this information is sent to our in-house CEREC milling machine. Our skilled lab technician etches your new crown from a solid block of zirconia, a durable and strong tooth-colored dental ceramic. Color-matching and polishing is done while you wait. Dr. Byars securely bonds your natural-looking dental crown to your tooth. Getting a same-day crown typically only takes about two hours, while a dental bridge may take longer since it requires two crowns and a false tooth.
