Choosing Esthetic Crowns and Bridges
If you have a severely damaged tooth or one or more teeth that are missing, you probably have a lot of questions about your options. Your experience with restorative dentistry in the past may be less than ideal. It’s entirely possible that you have seen others with dentistry that looks obvious and unattractive. The color of the restoration may stand out among the other teeth, or you may have noticed a distinctive dark line at the gums that gives it all away.
At our practice, we believe that all dentistry should look great as well as be strong and durable. Dr. Kevin Burgdorf, a cosmetic dentist in Bridgeton, MO, can help you have a smile that is both healthy and beautiful – truly the best of both worlds!
Esthetic Choices in Dental Health
There’s no question that it’s important for your smile to look good as well as feel good. We offer restorations made of materials like porcelain and zirconia. These dental materials allow for lifelike restorations that are virtually indistinguishable from your other teeth. Once they are placed, they will blend in beautifully. In fact, you might even have trouble pointing out which tooth is your restoration!
How Is This Accomplished?
For starters, we work with skilled labs that we trust to provide great results for our patients. These U.S.-based laboratories use high-quality materials and follow Dr. Burgdorf’s specific instructions.
Dr. Burgdorf will take images of your teeth and carefully color match to make sure that your restorations match the natural shade of your teeth. If you are looking for a full smile makeover, it might even be a good choice to whiten your teeth before we plan your restorations so that your restorations will match the new and improved shade of your teeth. Restorations don’t whiten in the way that natural teeth do, so if you’ve considered revitalizing your smile, now is the time to do it.
Your images and impressions will be delivered to the lab where highly skilled technicians will custom craft your crown or bridge. Once the restoration is sent back to us, Dr. Burgdorf will check it over to make sure that it is perfect. When he is happy, we will notify you to return to our office so we can place your restoration.
Once the restoration is placed, Dr. Burgdorf will make any necessary adjustments so that your bite is comfortable and well aligned and then you will be free to go about your day with your new smile! Call our office today to learn more.
