, Dr. Upen J. Patel, specializes in providing patients with dental restorations to make their smile attractive and healthy once again.
If you have a missing tooth, a dental bridge may be the best tooth replacement option for you. Our dentist in Sacramento CA can provide you with a dental bridge that not only looks attractive, but which will feel perfectly comfortable in your mouth. A dental bridge is used when a tooth is missing. The dental bridge is made up of a replacement tooth crown that is flanked on either side by another crown. Each end-crown is placed over the tooth adjacent to the missing tooth, on either side. The new tooth is virtually suspended between the two secured end-teeth. The dental bridge, will them be permanently attached to the adjacent teeth, and will never need to be removed. All teeth are made to perfectly color-match the adjacent teeth, so no one will ever realize that you have a dental bridge in your mouth. Dental crowns are also made of porcelain, and are color-matched to adjacent teeth, as well. Dental crowns can be used for many different purposes, such as was previously described for a dental bridge. Dental crowns are also used as the top tooth portion of a dental implant. If our dentist sees that you have a tooth that is damaged, and is in danger of becoming infected or breaking, he may want to provide you with a dental crown to strengthen the tooth. Dental crowns can also be used in a purely cosmetic way, to improve the appearance of a damaged or discolored tooth. Dental crowns are also commonly referred to as caps.
