Restore the Health and Function of Your Smile

Dental Crowns Florence

At Advanced Dental Center we are proud to be on the cutting edge of dentistry. Meanwhile, we recognize that certain tried-and-true dental procedures can never be replaced. That is why we provide top-quality dental crowns and bridges to ourFlorence and Darlington patients.

Our crowns and bridges are customized to match your natural teeth to an exacting degree, preserving your bite and providing you with an attractive, natural-looking smile. In fact, these restorative dentistry solutions not only improve the function of your teeth, they can have tremendous cosmetic advantages as well.

During a consultation with one of our dentists, you can discuss your treatment options and learn how crowns and bridges can preserve, protect, and improve your bite and smile. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.

Complete dentures replace all of a patient’s teeth and partial dentures are for patients who are missing some of their teeth. When patients are having teeth removed at Advanced Dental Center, we most often perform the oral surgery and insert the dentures on the same day. Patients prefer this option rather than having to wait for their dentures.

What Is a Dental Crown?

crowns-and-bridgesA dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that fully covers a damaged tooth, or connects with the abutment piece of a dental implant. To place a crown, one of our highly skilled dentists will perform any necessary treatment of the tooth. Next, an impression of your tooth (or dental implant) will be taken, which will be sent to our dental laboratory to guide the creation of your customized restoration. While your crown is being made, you will be given a temporary crown to protect your tooth and allow you to eat and drink normally.

Once the crown is finished, your dentist will check the fit and cement it into place, providing immediate functional and aesthetic benefits. At Advanced Dental Center, we offer crowns made of all-porcelain zirconia or porcelain bonded to metal (PBM), providing you with the strongest and most natural-looking crowns available.

Benefits & Candidacy

Crowns can be used to:

  • Improve the shape of a damaged or irregular tooth. Overall, crowns can enhance the uniformity of teeth, and conceal a range of structural imperfections.
  • Strengthen a damaged tooth. If you have a cracked tooth, or have undergone root canal therapy, a crown can protect the tooth from further decay and damage.
  • Replace a missing tooth. Dental crowns can top both traditional and mini dental implants.

If you have deep stains that cannot be improved with teeth whitening, or if your teeth are chipped or worn, crowns can also be used to mask these cosmetic blemishes. However, because crowns involve altering the structure of a tooth, you should talk to your dentist about other cosmetic dentistry options, such as veneers and bonding, before choosing crowns.

What is a Dental Bridge?

Dental bridges, also called partial dentures, literally bridge the gap left by one or more missing teeth. These custom replacement teeth can be supported by two adjacent dental crowns, or used to restore a dental implant.
