Whether we like it or not, the health and integrity of our teeth are put at risk during our daily life, so it’s important to know your options in the unfortunate event that an accident occurs…
Here at Lincoln Park Smiles, we are experts when it comes to restorative dentistry. We offer a myriad of different options for preventative and restorative dentistry including same day crowns, bridges, and dental implants. Crowns are perfect for patients who have gone through oral trauma or have been inflicted by a dental accident. Dental implants and bridges are generally used to conceal and fill in holes left by tooth extractions or tooth loss due to an accident. Dental implants are often referred to as the more permanent solution, although bridges can also last over a decade if cared for properly.
Same day crowns have a broad number of benefits
Root canal treatment and dental crowns are both extremely useful when trying to salvage your natural tooth. Crowns have a variety of uses including functional and cosmetic restorations. They can also be used to mend cracked teeth which are a common occurrence for people who have received amalgam fillings earlier in their life. This occurs because amalgam swells and shrinks with temperature changes, causing the tooth to be put under varied pressure. Crowns can also be used to ‘cap’ your tooth after a root canal treatment has been performed. This seals the tooth from further decay and restores the function of your smile. Same day crowns provided by Lincoln Park Smiles can also strengthen teeth that have become weakened due to loss of enamel and decay.
You may still need dental implants and bridges…
Although same day crowns can completely restore your smile, in some instances your dentist at Lincoln Park Smiles may determine that your decay has progressed too far to be salvaged. This will require a tooth extraction which will mean you will also require either a dental implant procedure or a bridge. Bridges are one of our most popular teeth-replacement procedures because it can be performed quickly and if cared for properly can last over a decade. The dental bridge itself is made up of two crowns which fix to the teeth surrounding the gap left by the extracted tooth. The tooth in the middle will be solid and appear exactly like a natural tooth. Your dentist at Lincoln Park Smiles will be able to color match your bridge so that it blends perfectly with your natural teeth.
