Sam shares how Dr. Marcano transformed more than his smile
Common Restoration Procedures
D ental crowns and bridges are one of the most common restorative dental procedures in America—over 15 million people have either a dental crown or bridge.
These procedures are used to restore appearance and function back to your smile when teeth are lost or have been damaged. Dr. Francisco Marcano is skilled at creating and placing beautiful crown and bridge restorations to bring your smile back to life.
Protect and Enhance
Your Teeth with Dental Crowns
D ental crowns, also known as caps, are versatile restorations. Used to restore function and appearance to damaged teeth, they are also used to restore dental implants.
When you are in need of a dental crown, we will gently reshape your existing tooth so there is adequate space for the new restoration. Using our intraoral camera, we can take digital images of the inside of your mouth to help with the construction of your new crown. Dr. Marcano will design your dental crown to fit your bite and give it the appearance of a natural tooth. We utilize a trusted dental lab to create your crown and typically will have your restoration back in as little as 10 days. When placing your final crown on your tooth, we will ensure it is color matched to your smile so it blends in seamlessly. Once placed, you will be able to use your tooth as normal.
Common uses for dental crowns include
- Cap dental implants
- Root canal restoration
- Cosmetic enhancement to teeth
- Cover chipped or cracked teeth
Dental Bridges Return Function to Your Bite
A dental bridge is a collection of crowns used to span the gap of a missing tooth or several missing teeth.The purpose of a dental bridge is to restore biting and chewing function, enhance the attractiveness of your smile and to prevent surrounding teeth from shifting into the empty space. Dr. Marcano will design the restoration to match your bite and tooth color. Patients typically enjoy the enhanced ability to eat more foods, speak properly and have a higher self-confidence after restoring their smile with a dental bridge. Dental bridges offer many benefits, including:
- Prevent surrounding teeth from shifting
- Restore appearance to the smile
- Improve ability to eat foods
- Replaces one or multiple missing teeth
