Crowns and Bridges in
Hialeah Gardens

Dental crowns are dental restorations that are used to cover a tooth that is at risk of fracture or is too damaged to be restored with a filling. A crown can also be attached to a dental implant to permanently replace a missing tooth. Dental bridges are restorative treatments that can be used to replace missing teeth.

Dental Crowns & Bridges in Hialeah Gardens

Dental Crowns

The muscles in the jaw are among the strongest in the body which means that teeth are subjected to tremendous pressure. When a tooth suffers serious damage, a crown can be used to “cap” the tooth providing strength and protecting them against breakage. A dental crown will look and function just like your natural tooth.

It typically takes two appointments to restore a tooth with a crown. During the first appointment, any existing decay is removed from the tooth. An impression is then made for use in fabricating the crown. Between the two visits, a temporary crown will be worn. At the second visit, this temporary crown is removed, and your new custom-made crown is placed on the tooth. In the case of a lost tooth, a dental crown can also be used to complete your smile. In this case, a dental implant will be surgically placed in the jaw, and the crown will be permanently attached.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are an option for filling the space created by a missing tooth or several teeth in a row. Bridges are custom-made to look and function naturally while filling in the gap created when teeth are lost. The ends of a dental bridge use the teeth at either end of the gap for support. Crowns will be placed on these teeth for extra strength and stability. Quality bridgework is as much an art as it is a science.

It is important that a missing tooth be replaced as soon as possible for several reasons. If not treated, the teeth surrounding the gap may begin to shift. Teeth use their neighbors for support, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As these issues compound, the bite changes in response to the pressure. This can eventually result in problems with the entire mouth.

I absolutely love Biltmore Dental. The staff is very accommodating and nice and my dentist is the best. The check-in is very fast and they work arduously with your insurance to make sure you know your coverage prior to the procedure. Thank you guys for all your hard work!

Biltmore Dental Associates is the best! I want to express my sincere appreciation for the promptness and professional care given to my mother. Dr. Santana and all the staff made me us feel that she was in safe hands. Coming here is like dealing with trusted family. We would not consider changing dentist!
