Crowns and Bridges
Dental crowns work alone or alongside the bridge or dental implant to help restore missing or damaged teeth. And we are proud to provide dental crowns and restorative dentistry to families in all locations, including Cincinnati, Bridgetown, Cleves, Covedale, and Western Hills.
Dr. John Unger insists on quality materials to create all restorations, including crowns and bridges, which has made us a destination dental practice for many families. And our restorations are always colored and designed to complement your surrounding teeth.
At John V. Unger, DDS, we want you to enjoy a full and comfortable smile that is as beautiful as it is functional.
Quality Dental Crowns in Cincinnati, OH
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cover that goes over a treated tooth. It restores aesthetics and function.
If you need a dental crown, the first step is impressions. A trusted lab uses the impression results to fabricate a crown that fits your tooth. Dr. Unger then makes all final adjustments, including shading, to ensure your crown blends with your adjacent teeth and fits comfortably. Our patients have been very pleased with our dental crowns.
How We Use Dental Crowns
Dental crowns have a variety of uses across dentistry, including:
- To support a weak or damaged tooth, sometimes following root canal therapy
- To conceal tooth flaws and discoloration
- To top a dental implant post, acting as your new tooth
- To anchor a dental bridge to adjacent teeth
What Is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is a restoring tooth or teeth with a dental crown on each side. The crowns cap your healthy adjacent teeth, allowing the restoring teeth to fill in your smile gap. A dental bridge is a fixed appliance, so you never have to worry about the prosthetic slipping. You'll never have to visit the dentist for a reline or cruise the drugstore aisles for adhesives.
For added stability, your dentist may recommend a dental implant post to better secure your dental bridge.
Caring for Dental Crowns and Bridges in Cincinnati
A dental crown requires the same type of upkeep as a natural tooth, including regular dental checkups and teeth cleanings. During your checkup, your dentist will examine your restorations to ensure everything is working as it should.
We recommend a small cleaning brush and floss threader for a dental bridge to keep the prosthetic clean, especially near the gumline. A member of our team will provide all instructions for care following your dental bridge placement.
