Crowns and Bridges
At Lyons Dental, we provide dental crowns and bridges for patients throughout the Centerville area. These procedures are extremely effective for restoring a tooth that has become infected, damaged or has fallen out. Dr. John-Varghese is an expert at completing these procedures in a way that looks natural while resolving oral health issues. This way a patient can regain the functionality of their tooth without looking like dental work was ever completed. If you live in the Centerville Ohio area, call 937-428-2288 to schedule your appointment so that you can learn more about dental crowns and dental bridges.
WHAT ARE DENTAL CROWNS?
A dental crown is a cap that surrounds the tooth. Dr. John-Varghese will typically use a crown to restore a tooth that has been damaged, but they can also be used for cosmetic purposes in order to improve the appearance of a smile. A crown can be made in three different materials, all-metal, ceramic-on-metal, and all-ceramic. Where the crown is located will determine the best material to use. For example, front teeth should have an all-ceramic crown, if possible, since it looks the most natural. Patients throughout Ohio will often use ceramic-on-metal crowns since they look natural but have the durability that only metal can provide. At Lyons Dental, you have the advantage of receiving same-day crowns through the CEREC Process.
WHAT ARE DENTAL BRIDGES?
A dental bridge is a way to replace a missing tooth. At Lyons Dental, we provide clients with dental bridges if they want to replace a tooth without wearing dentures or undergoing surgery. The new tooth is held in place by two crowns. It looks natural and is made from a ceramic or porcelain material to match the surrounding teeth. As an experienced cosmetic dentist, Dr. John-Varghese makes sure that the new tooth looks and feels amazing.
BEFORE THE PROCEDURE.
If you are getting dental crowns or a dental bridge for cosmetic reasons, we recommend that you whiten your teeth first. At Lyons Dental, we offer teeth whitening procedures through Zoom Whitening that can improve the appearance of your smile quickly and easily. It is important to have this procedure done first because the material that crowns and bridges are made from are both stain and bleach resistant. That means that if it is created to match yellow teeth, it will remain yellow even if you have your teeth whitened at a later date. When you have the procedure done first, your new crown or bridge will be made to match your new brilliantly white teeth.
When preparing for the procedure, we recommend that patients take a day off of work. If possible, you may want to take a couple of days off. It is normal for teeth to be somewhat sensitive, and it is easier if you don’t have to worry about meeting clients and keeping up with your busy schedule.
