Crowns, Bridges, & Dentures in Gilroy
A crown is a restoration that is designed to completely cover the visible
portion of a tooth. Crowns may be used for a number of reasons, such as
strengthening a weak or fractured tooth, to restore the shape of a tooth,
or after a root canal to protect the tooth. A crown can also be used with
a dental implant to replace a missing tooth.
If you have a tooth that needs a crown, we will prepare the tooth for the
restoration and take an impression of the tooth. The lab will create your
custom crown from Porcelain and/or Zirconia due to these materials' biocompatibility,
high strength, and impressive esthetics. When your crown is ready, you
will come back to our office. We will place the crown and make sure the
fit is perfect before cementing the crown in place.

Solutions for Restoring Missing Teeth
Are you missing one or more teeth? When teeth are missing, your ability
to eat, speak, and smile normally will be affected. In addition, missing
teeth can cause the tissues and bone that hold the teeth in place to begin
to shrink, which may cause esthetic concerns.

missing teeth and the appearance of your smile. We can also restore your
Depending on the needs of the individual patient, a combination of bridges,
crowns, and dentures in Gilroy may be recommended. Dental bridges are
designed to replace missing teeth with artificial teeth. They are attached
to the natural teeth on either side of the empty space, which are known
as abutment teeth. In some cases, dental implants may be placed to support
the dental bridge.
Our dental bridges are made from the following materials due to their biocompatibility, high strength and impressive esthetics:
The process requires two visits to our office. During the first visit,
the abutment teeth are prepared to make room for the bridge and impressions
are made. These impressions are used to create your restorations in the
lab. When the bridge is ready, you will return to our office and the bridge
will be cemented in place.
Dentures are used when multiple all of the teeth on the arch are missing.
You may need dentures to replace all the teeth on the top, the bottom,
or both. The technology for dentures has improved dramatically in recent
years, and today’s dentures are more comfortable and better fitting
than ever before. Dentures are available in full dentures, partial dentures,
and implant-retained dentures.
If you have one or more missing teeth, we recommend that you schedule an
appointment for an exam. We will check your teeth and assess your overall
dental health and then discuss the options that are available for bridges,
crowns, and dentures in Gilroy, as well as the cost of the treatment.
Dental insurance generally covers a portion of the cost and payment options
are available to help you get the restorations you need.
