Crowns and Bridges for Dental Patients in the Largo, FL, Area
At Florida Dental Centers in Largo, Florida, we’ve been carefully crafting dental crowns and bridges individually for each patient in our own centralized crown and bridge lab since 1981. With a commitment to providing comprehensive, affordable dental care, our dedicated team of dentists and specialists create personalized treatment plans to enhance the health and beauty of our patients’ smiles. And, unlike many other practices, we are able to keep costs down for our patients because we don’t have to send their dental work out of the country – or even outside of our practice.
Both crowns and bridges are tried-and-true types of dental restorations that have been used for decades, and each serves a different purpose. A dental crown is a custom “cap” that is designed to cover, protect, and restore the function and appearance of a partially damaged tooth. At Florida Dental Centers in Largo, FL, we prefer to maintain the original integrity of a patient’s mouth whenever possible. Therefore, if any portion of a tooth remains healthy, we often recommend crowning the tooth rather than removing it (when possible).
A bridge differs from a crown in that it is meant to completely replace a missing tooth. This option consists of a replacement tooth attached to two crowns, which are crafted to fit over the natural teeth located on each side of the missing one.
Depending on a patient’s needs, preferences, and budget, crowns and bridges can be constructed of:
- All porcelain
- Porcelain fused to gold
- Porcelain fused to metal
Regardless of the type of dental restoration required, the compassionate dentists at Florida Dental Centers can recommend an optimal solution. We also offer dental implants, veneers, and dentures to meet the diverse needs of our patients.
While dentistry is a science, it is also an art, and the custom-made crowns and bridges available at Florida Dental Centers in Largo, FL, are perfect examples of this. If you’d like to learn more, contact us to schedule a personal appointment with one of our dentists.
