Crowns and Bridges
A missing tooth makes social situations difficult and can even impact your bite force and digestion. Without quality tooth replacement, you may also experience shifting teeth and future tooth loss due to enamel wear.
At Anderson Dental, Dr. Scott Anderson, Dr. John Anderson, and Dr. Cesar Alburez, your dentists in Champaign, IL offer traditional crowns and bridges and same-day dental crowns.
Crowns and bridges together stand-in for missing teeth, and crowns, on their own, have a variety of essential roles to play in dental health.
Dental Crowns and Same-Day Crowns in Champaign, IL
A dental crown is a time-tested restoration used across dentistry. If you have a root infection or tooth trauma, a dental crown is often the final step in restoring that damaged tooth. Dental crown placement is also the final step in the dental implant procedure, topping an implant post and replacing your lost tooth. When it comes to a dental bridge, dental crowns act as anchors to secure your new restoration teeth.
CEREC technology allows us to create same-day dental crowns in Champaign, IL. The first step is a digital impression of your mouth. This impression requires no gooey pastes! We upload the digital impression to our computer, and our on-site milling machine creates the crown while you wait.
Your Champaign, IL dentist makes adjustments, and you leave our office with your new tooth crown—no waiting for an outside lab!
Your dentist will help you decide whether a traditional or a same-day crown is the best or right option for you.
Dental Bridges in Champaign, IL
If you have a missing tooth or teeth, we offer a variety of tooth-replacement options in Champaign, IL, including crowns and bridges.
A dental bridge is a replacement tooth or teeth supported by dental crowns on either side. These crowns cap your adjacent teeth, while the restorative teeth fill in your smile gap. A dental bridge is an affixed restoration, so you don’t have to worry about removing it for cleaning.
Our crowns and bridges in Champaign, IL are always colored and shaped to fit in with your natural teeth. Friends and family will not notice that you have a dental bridge, but they may admire your smile!
Caring for Crowns and Bridges
A dental crown does not require special care. You brush, floss around it, and treat the tooth crown like a natural tooth.
A dental bridge in Champaign, IL requires a small cleaning brush and a floss threader, which allows you to clean beneath the appliance. This is a simple process and easy to incorporate into your oral care routine. A member of our friendly staff will provide instructions.
Restorations do not protect against gum disease or further tooth loss. It is essential to visit your Champaign, IL dentist regularly to keep your smile healthy and to prevent crown and bridge failure.
