Simple, Easy Dental Crowns
Receiving a personalized dental crown is easier than you may think—especially when you have an expert dentist like Dr. Sikes crafting and placing it.
At your initial visit, Dr. Sikes will make sure your tooth can support a crown. The tooth will need to be filed down just a bit to fit your dental crown over the tooth. If you’re getting a crown because a tooth is damaged, Dr. Sikes can alternatively fill the tooth to support your customized dental crown.
After the tooth has been stabilized, impressions and measurements of the affected area will be taken to create your personalized dental restoration. You’ll receive a temporary dental crown while your restoration is created, solving your dental issue from the first visit to our office!
As soon as your custom crown is created, Dr. Sikes will solidify your permanent dental crown and place your dental restoration!
Understanding Helpful Dental Bridges
If you have missing teeth, dental restorations like dental bridges can help you restore them. Bridges are consecutive dental crowns that are attached to replace missing teeth that are next to one another.
If you have consecutive missing teeth, custom dental bridges can “bridge the gap” between your remaining natural teeth. Dr. Sikes will simply attach the ends of your bridge to neighboring teeth for extra stability.
Benefits of Custom Dental Restorations
Dental crowns and bridges from your dentist in Mount Pleasant are built to last. They can help our patients for at least a decade, possibly longer if you take excellent care of them. The most important step you can take to ensure the longevity of your bridge is to practice good oral hygiene. When we say, “good oral hygiene”, this includes:
Keeping your teeth and gums strong and healthy by brushing and flossing twice a day.
Making sure that you visit your dentist at least semiannually for dental exams and deep professional cleanings.
Prevent dental damage by avoiding hard, crunchy foods that can cause your restoration to break.
In the case that you do experience damage to your restoration or even your natural teeth, you can rely on our dependable dental team and expert dentist, Dr. Sikes. Don’t hesitate to call our office to schedule an appointment right away!
