Helping maintain the health of your smile is our goal at Diestel & Partners
. Crowns can help protect a tooth broken or heavily filled, or one with an old filling that is leaking. Caps are also placed after a root canal
. Bridges are used to replace missing teeth and prevent the adjacent teeth from moving into the empty space. Bridges are used if the bone is not stable enough for a dental implant.
We have a CEREC system to fabricate same-day crowns. Rather than physical impressions, we have scanning technology to create digital impressions. It’s necessary to reduce the size of your existing tooth somewhat, so that the crown or bridge will fit over the tooth without adding bulk to your smile. Based on your digital impressions, we’ll use our CEREC milling machine to create your crown, and then place it at the same appointment.
Whether you’re getting a crown or a bridge, we’ll show you a gallery of pre- and post-procedure photos from other patients, so you can see what a wonderful difference it can make in your smile.
