Bishop Family Dental is a Salt Lake City dentist that provides dental crowns and bridges in a way that is natural while restoring oral health issues. Bridges and crowns can be used to improve a tooth’s appearance, shape and alignment in addition to strengthening a damaged tooth. This procedure can also restore functionality of your mouth making it easy to eat, drink, and speak like normal.
Crowns are used to cover or cap a damaged tooth, an implant, replace a large filling, and even a tooth that is discolored. Caps also protect weak or fractured teeth. They are also vital in dental procedures like bridges and root canals.
Crowns can be made in three different materials all metal, ceramic on metal and ceramic. Dr. Bishop will determine what material will be used based on where the crown is located. Crowns can last anywhere from seven to forty years if a good oral health routine is maintained. Dr. Daniel Bishop will file down the affected tooth to make room for the crown. Most crowns require the patient to have a temporary crown applied while the permanent crown is made. At our office, we have the technology to have it completed in one visit. Dr. Daniel Bishop will discuss your options and you can choose the best option for you and your schedule.
