The Importance of Choosing the Right Dental Clinic

Selecting the right clinic is crucial for dental restoration. At Houston Dental Oasis, we combine advanced technology with skilled craftsmanship to create restorations that seamlessly blend with your natural teeth, ensuring comfort and a natural appearance.

What are Crowns and Bridges?

Definition and Differences

Dental crowns are caps placed over damaged teeth to restore their shape, size, strength, and appearance. Bridges, on the other hand, are used to fill the gap created by one or more missing teeth, anchored on either side by crowns.

How Crowns and Bridges Work

Crowns and bridges work by protecting and strengthening tooth structures or replacing missing teeth, respectively. They are cemented onto existing teeth or implants and are designed to match the color, height, and texture of your natural teeth.

The Procedure for Crowns and Bridges at Houston Dental Oasis

Consultation and Planning

The first step involves a thorough consultation to assess your dental health and discuss your restoration options. This includes taking X-rays and making impressions of your existing teeth.

Step-by-Step Guide to the Procedure

Our dental professionals will prepare your teeth for crowns or bridges, which may involve reshaping the tooth surface. Temporary crowns or bridges are placed while your custom-made permanent restorations are being prepared in a lab.

Aftercare and Follow-up

Following the placement of your crowns or bridges, we provide detailed aftercare instructions and schedule follow-up visits to ensure proper fit and comfort, adjusting as necessary for perfect alignment.

Benefits of Crowns and Bridges

Functional Benefits

Crowns and bridges restore functionality to your teeth, allowing you to chew and speak without difficulty. They also help maintain the alignment of your remaining teeth by preventing them from shifting.

Aesthetic Benefits

With materials that mimic the translucency and color of natural teeth, crowns and bridges improve the overall appearance of your smile, boosting confidence and social interaction.
