Dental Crowns & Bridges in Troy, MI

Bring Back Your Smile

Sometimes dental problems can leave our smiles a little worse for wear. If you’re suffering from tooth loss or the effects of tooth decay, a dental restoration can get your oral health back on track. 

Crowns and bridges are two of the most frequently placed restorations. They’re both permanent prosthetic appliances that replace a severely decayed or damaged tooth. Patients can enjoy the restored function of their teeth, as well as a complete, attractive, and natural smile.

Your unique situation will determine which type of restoration Dr. Bachuri recommends to bring back your healthy smile.

What Are Dental Crowns?

As their name suggests, dental crowns sit atop the affected tooth, encasing it inside. The crown extends down to the gum, meaning that the underlying tooth will no longer be affected by decay or infection. The tooth is prepared before the crown is placed, with any infected or decayed areas removed and the tooth filed down enough for the crown to sit over the top of it.

In some instances, a severely eroded or worn tooth may require building up so that it can adequately support the crown.

Crowns are most often recommended for patients who:

  • Need a larger filling than the tooth can support
  • Have a tooth at risk of breaking
  • Have a tooth that is broken and needs to be held together
  • Have undergone root canal treatment and need the affected tooth protected from reinfection
  • Require cosmetic care for a tooth that is undersized, misshapen, or discolored 

Our dental crowns are custom-designed for each specific patient so that they’re the perfect shape, size, and color to blend in with the rest of your smile. This makes the solution extremely discreet and natural-looking, as well as being a functional repair that ensures that you can use the tooth as normal.

What Are Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges are a type of dental restoration that’s recommended for patients with missing teeth or an infected tooth that requires extraction. The purpose of a bridge is to replace missing teeth so that there is no longer a visible gap in your smile, and so that the function of your teeth is not adversely affected.

A bridge is made from a row of prosthetic crowns that have been custom-designed to fill the gap and to fit over the teeth on either side of the space. The crowns placed over the natural teeth on either side of the space secure the bridge in place. These crowns are attached in exactly the same way as single crowns, placed over the top of pre-prepared teeth, and secured using dental cement.

Placing Your Restoration

Placing your crown or bridge can be completed in as little as two appointments to our Troy office. During your consultation, Dr. Bachuri will thoroughly examine the condition of your teeth to provide the proper treatment for your unique situation. 

In order to ensure a comfortable experience, we’ll administer a local anesthetic before shaping and preparing your natural tooth so that it can properly receive your new dental crown or bridge. After the tooth has been prepared, we’ll take detailed impressions of your bite to ensure your new restoration is not only color-matched but will also fit perfectly into your smile.

While we wait for your crown or bridge to be made, we’ll place a temporary crown or bridge over your tooth for added protection. Once your restoration is completed, you’ll return to our office where Dr. Bachuri will thoroughly clean your teeth before attaching your permanent crown or bridge using a special dental resin.
