Dr. Vilderman is a top-ranked provider of restorative and cosmetic dentistry procedures including crowns and bridges. Dental bridges and crowns, made of the most durable materials, help San Francisco and serving the Park Merced, West Portal, and Outer Sunset area patients enjoy great-looking smiles with natural-looking results for years to come.
A crown also called a cap, are dental restorations that are designed to surround the entire surface of the tooth. One of the most common uses of a crown is to repair significant damage or decay that has affected a tooth. When in place, the crown restores the tooth to good health and function, optimal structure, size, and shape. A dental crown can also improve the appearance of the tooth to hide large fillings, fractures, or other issues. Many of our patients choose crowns made of porcelain for an aesthetic, natural-looking restoration, but crowns may also be created from gold or porcelain fused to metal. Our dentist will help you choose the type of restoration that is best suited to your personal dental needs and desires.
When you visit Dr. Vilderman, she may suggest a dental crown for a number reasons including restorative and aesthetic purposes. This can include:
A dental bridge is a fixed restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth in a row. Dental bridges function by using a strong adhesive for permanent attachment, or special clips so the bridge can be removed, to attach an artificial tooth to two crowns that are anchored to adjacent existing teeth or dental implants. Using a custom design to fit your smile, Dr. Vilderman creates high-quality dental bridges that are comfortable and natural feeling.
A dental bridge can help to bridge the gap if you are missing a single tooth or multiple teeth that are adjacent to one another. Bridges help to improve the aesthetics of your smile as well as restore its function, such as relieving the stress on your bite by balancing the force exerted on your teeth.
To find out whether a dental crown or bridge is right for your smile, we invite you to call or visit us today.
