Dental Crowns, Bridges & Veneers

Restore the look & function of your smile by replacing broken, damaged teeth, and missing teeth.

Are you needing to replace a broken or missing tooth? At dental & smile design at MAHOGANY, our dental team can help you restore the function of your teeth while ensuring the natural esthetics with dental crowns and bridges.

Crowns and bridges are fixed dental prosthetic devices, they aren’t like dentures that you can remove at any time. Instead, crowns and bridges are permanently placed by your dentist.

What are Crowns?
A crown, or a cap, is a dental restoration that covers your natural tooth or dental implant. Crowns are used to strengthen damaged or decayed teeth, to replace large fillings in teeth, or to restore teeth with a root canal. It’s often made of ceramic or porcelain, and it can mimic the shape and color of your tooth. In this day and age, it’s nearly impossible to tell the difference between a crown and natural tooth.

Dental Crowns are recommended when:

● You have a tooth that requires a filling that will exceed the natural tooth structure
● Your teeth have extensive damage, tooth decay and/or fracture lines
● Your teeth are discolored and have compromised tooth esthetics
● Your teeth have undergone root canal therapy. This involves removal of the nerve and blood supply inside the tooth. The lack of blood supply results in a dry tooth. Over the years, these teeth become brittle and are more susceptible to fracture. Teeth that have undergone root canal therapy should be protected with a dental crown to prevent breaking down the road.

What are Bridges?
Bridges can replace a single tooth or multiple missing teeth. The bridge covers the gap created by the missing teeth. It is attached at both ends to the adjacent remaining teeth.

Bridges are helpful for the following reasons:

● They help you chew properly
● They keep the teeth adjacent and opposing to the gap from moving into the empty space
● They maintain the shape of your face
● You get your smile back

What Are Veneers?
Veneers are thin coverings that are made from either porcelain or composite resin that are placed on the front of your teeth. Veneers are shaped and contoured to improve your existing smile and will cover any flaws such as chipped, gapped, misaligned or stained teeth. 

Each veneer is custom designed and bonded to the natural teeth.

Veneers are recommended to correct teeth issues such as:

● Tooth staining and discoloration
● Improve the appearance of crooked and misaligned teeth
● Lengthen teeth that appear short
● Close spaces or gaps between teeth
● Change the dynamics of your smile
