For crown and bridge dentistry, again, I think the basic premise is the knowledge and understanding of what is there. I equate it to like you're building a house, you need to have the foundation and make sure that's solid. Doing dentistry, again, same thing. You need to make sure the gum disease, the bone, periodontal, all that is the foundation is okay. So, again, along the lines I've talked about some before is, it's important to look before you leap.
It's important to get a good understanding and knowledge and information about what's in the patient's mouth, what's missing or what's not missing. If you've already got to the point where you had B instead of A, then at B, you need to make sure and see what is the proper plan, game plan? What are the options, A, B, or C? Okay. The same thing is if you're building a house. If you don't have a blueprint, you can't very well build a decent house and know where the structure has to be.
So what we try to do is take models of the patient, and be able to make a blueprint, so to speak, of how and design the teeth are going to look. Especially if we're doing a bridge to reconstruct it. Now again, along the same lines, there may be an option to put an implant in, and have us restore the implant that you put in. So all those are part of this A, B part of it, before you get to C, which is actually implementing and doing the treatment. So just like I've said before, an ounce of prevention might keep you from having to have that (inaudible 00:01:51) bridge done. The proper evaluation and then the correct choices is the A, B, C step.

Repair And Cover Damaged Teeth With Dental Crowns, Replace With Dental Bridges
If you’ve never gone through the process of getting a dental crown, you may wonder what to expect. Unlike a tooth filling, which is a small bit of composite resin that goes inside your tooth, these are caps that go over your whole tooth and are bonded to its surface. And with our all-ceramic dental crowns, you’ll get a solution that’s as natural-looking and natural-feeling as your own tooth. We use the iTero 3D® digital scanner to take an impression of your teeth and mouth. We then send this digital file to the lab where your restoration is created.
A dental crowns is an ideal treatment for a number of dental problems, including:
- Teeth weakened by tooth decay. Once we remove the infection, we can cover your tooth to protect it and offer you full functionality when eating.
- Teeth treated by a root canal. Once the infected pulp inside your tooth is removed, your tooth will need to be covered for its own protection.
Dental bridges allow us to replace missing teeth or teeth that must be extracted due to damage. They’re often supported by neighboring teeth, which are covered with dental crowns to provide a natural-looking solution.
