Dental restorations come in many shapes, sizes, and colors. Every patient has a unique smile and needs restorations to look just like the rest of their teeth for seamless integration. Dr. Joseph Narde of Columbus, GA is a dentist at Willow Point Dental who understands the importance of aesthetics in dental work. This is why he offers services such as bridges and dental crowns to restore smiles.

Dental crowns

Dental crowns are custom-made of zirconium right in our dental practice using our 3M™ True Definition Scanner by Glidewell. This device is used to mill crowns and bridges in the dental office while patients wait. It eliminates the time needed for traditional crown treatment in which patients need temporaries placed while waiting for their final restoration. Crowns are often placed onto a tooth to add an extra layer of protection and strength that may be necessary after trauma, disease, or large cavities. In some cases, dental crowns are used to restore a dental implant.

Dental bridges

Dental bridges are fabricated using dental crowns. Crowns are fused on both ends, and in-between is a false tooth called a pontic. This tooth is made to fit right where a missing tooth once was. The entire restoration is one piece and is bonded onto the adjacent teeth for support. Therefore, the restoration “bridges the gap,” hence the name. Dental bridges are a popular option for patients seeking a more permanent restoration than a denture and a less expensive restoration than a dental implant.

Dr. Joseph Narde of Willow Point Dental wants patients to learn about restorations such as bridges and crowns available in his office. He is proud to be one of the few practices in the area that offers same-day restorations with his advanced technological device. Call today at (706) 685-6787 to make an appointment.
