Pacific Smile?Crowns And Bridges

When major dental damage exists, regular fillings are not the first option for a permanent, fully functional restorative treatment.

In these cases, we work with crowns (also known as caps), that will work as a helmet for the damaged tooth. The crowns and bridges can be made of porcelain, metal, zirconium, or a combination of these materials depending on the functional and esthetic needs of every case.

When the problem is a missing tooth (or several) then the treatment can be a removable denture, a bridge (fixed structure) or implants.

A bridge, the fixed option, relies on the teeth on the sides of the empty space left by the missing teeth to replace it. It is cemented in place, so it is a permanent and non-removable treatment.
