Types of Crowns:
What’s the procedure like?
The procedure for receiving a crown will require two or more trips to your dentist. For the first visit, your dentist will need to make a mold of your decayed tooth. Your dentist will send you home with a temporary crown after the decay has been removed and mold has been taken.
During the second visit, your dentist will remove the temporary crown and then cement the permanent one onto the top of your previously decayed tooth. After this has occurred, your dentist will need to evaluate your bite. This is done by biting down on a piece of carbon paper to test the positioning of your dental crown North Las Vegas. Feedback given by you will help your dentist find the perfect positioning.
What’s it like after the procedure?
Patients normally have no trouble after they leave the office following a crown procedure. You may feel numbness for a few hours after the procedure, which may result in minimal pain around the area. The cement hardens quickly, but it would be a good idea to stay away from hard foods such as apples or peanut brittle for a day or two to make sure your crown is fully cemented and hardened.

What’s a Dental Bridge?
Dental bridges are a type of procedure used to fill in gaps between missing teeth. They are called bridges specifically because they “bridge the gap” between teeth using a false tooth that is placed in between two adjacent teeth that are bonded into place using different types of materials.
Why Would I Need a Dental Bridge?
Dental bridges are recommended because gaps in teeth may cause long-lasting issues with your bite. By ignoring gaps in the teeth, your surrounding teeth may shift out of place and cause issues such as overcrowding and crooked teeth. To add, missing teeth may also alter your entire facial structure as bone loss can occur.
Types of Dental Bridges
There are different types of dental bridges that your dentist will recommend based on x-ray results and an oral examination.
These are one of the most common tried and true dental bridge techniques that involve creating a crown for the tooth or dental implant on either side of the missing tooth, with the false tooth (also called a pontic) carefully placed in between. They are typically made from either porcelain fused to metal or ceramic materials.
These are a relatively newer type of dental bridge that provide the same durability and structure as natural teeth, but are generally only used when more than one tooth is missing. If only one tooth is missing, a traditional bridge will be recommended. However, your dentist may also decide on utilizing implant-supported bridges if they feel you will put too much pressure on your isolated dental implants that are not supported.
