Dental Crowns and Bridges
Often a tooth becomes so damaged due to many factors that a full coverage tooth crown is the best option to restore the tooth to full function. This option, combined with biomimetic principles can lead to a very beautiful, long-term solution. You will be amazed at how little you will notice the new tooth crown in your mouth.
What Is Different About Dental Crowns at Hales Parker Dentistry?
The material that Dr. Parker uses to create dental crowns in Ladera Ranch is more lifelike and stronger than ever before. There are a variety of ceramics available, and Dr. Parker will select the best for each circumstance. Each one will allow him to bond it to your tooth for a long-lasting result.
In the past, dental crowns had to be cemented on with very little adhesion to the tooth. This meant that more of your tooth needed to be ground down for the crown to stay on long-term. When we can bond the ceramic to the tooth, we only need to remove the broken parts of the tooth and create a foundation for the tooth to stay healthy.
Same-Day Dental Crowns
Many patients from Rancho Santa Margarita and Mission Viejo to San Juan Capistrano are choosing CEREC crowns. CEREC crowns are custom-crafted right here in our Ladera Ranch office.
There are so many reasons to love CEREC crowns that Dr. Parker even made a video about them.
One of the best things about CEREC dental crowns is that you can have your permanent dental crowns in the same appointment — no need to to have two appointments and a temporary tooth crown in between. Ask us about CEREC dental crowns available to everyone in the Mission Viejo – Rancho Santa Margarita area.
Eliminating the need for a temporary tooth crown also allows Dr. Parker to keep more of your tooth, one of the biomimetic principles our practice is based upon.
Why Keep More Of My Tooth
Your tooth has many properties that are built for life. The multiple layers giving different flexibility and strength are some of those properties. The more of your natural tooth we can keep, the longer the tooth will be vital and functional.
Dr. Parker’s goal is to get your teeth healthy and keep them that way. The more we can keep of the natural tooth, the better chance we have of doing that. We are passionate about treating you conservatively to allow greater healing and longer-lasting solutions.
Do you have a tooth that is cracked or causing sensitivity? At our office we will take detailed photos and give straightforward options. The porcelain dental crowns we offer can provide the best possible solution to maintain your natural health and vitality. Call us today, and let us get you back to yourself again.
A dental bridge is a device that literally bridges over a gap in your smile. Dental bridges attach to the dental crowns on either side of your missing teeth. If there is no tooth to anchor the bridge to on one side, a dental implant can be placed to act as the anchor. Then the dental bridge can attach to a crown on top of the implant and the dental crown on the other side of the gap.
Similar to a retainer, dental bridges can be permanent or removable. If a permanent dental bridge is right for you, Dr. Parker is happy to place it in his Ladera Ranch office.
Dental bridges provide many benefits, including looking and feeling like a natural part of your smile; the teeth are matched with your tooth size, shape, and color. In addition, dental bridges are an effective, aesthetic, and long-lasting solution to missing teeth.
