Dental Crowns and Bridges
Dental Crowns are restorations that allow us to restore a damaged tooth to full function. When a tooth is too damaged to restore with a filling, a crown is often the restoration of choice to create a functional and aesthetic restoration. These days, most crowns are tooth colored, although we at Markiewicz Dental do fabricate gold crowns when appropriate. Tooth colored crowns are not only very strong and durable, but also very aesthetic, so they can be placed on both front and back teeth.
At Markiewicz Dental use only the highest quality local dental laboratories. Because we care for your health, we also require our laboratories to certify the materials used in the restorations we place. We use only high noble metals in crown, and bridges and use sophisticated crowns such as zirconia and e.max (non metal/ all ceramic crowns). You will never find any toxic materials in crowns or bridges or any prosthesis that we place in your mouth.
We at Markiewicz Dental also pride ourselves in matching crown color to your teeth. Among the various cutting-edge pieces of technology we use is the VITA Easyshade®. This tool is a “spectrophotometer”, which measures the spectrum of light that passes through a tooth—or, in layman’s terms, identifies a tooth’s color. This handheld device helps us match the color of our treatments to the color of your natural teeth. Using a sensor and innovative software, it identifies your tooth-shade, and aids in the creation of new restorations.
A Dental Bridge is a restoration used to replace a missing tooth/teeth. In addition to Implant Crowns and Removable Partial Dentures, Dental Bridges are one of the options we at Markiewicz Dental offer to replace missing teeth. Dental Bridges are fabricated with the same high quality materials as our Dental Crowns. A consultation at Markiewicz Dental will help you decide which restoration is appropriate for your situation.
