Are you worried about your missing teeth ruining your smile? Do you want to have them replaced, but aren't sure what your options are? If restorative dentistryso, then you've come to the right place. Dr. Roland Markarian offers his patients crowns and bridges at Golden Dental, located in Lancaster, CA.

Dental Bridges

The dental bridges your Lancaster dentist offers are custom-made oral appliances that will match the rest of your teeth.

There are two types of bridges:

  • Fixed partial dentures are attached to dental implants or natural teeth, but they come in various forms, such as conventional fixed bridges, cantilever bridges and resin-bonded bridges.
  • Removable bridges can be taken out of your mouth so you can give them a thorough cleaning yourself.

Bridges are helpful in improving aesthetic issues, as well as functional issues:

  • Conceal spaces and gaps between teeth
  • Restore bite and chewing functions

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns, like bridges, can offer you so much. The custom-made dental installations, also referred to as caps, are made of porcelain, which makes them durable. They are placed over a tooth after your doctor carves the tooth enough so that it can fit under the crown. Sometimes a tooth is so severely decayed, the doctor needs to rebuild the tooth before placing the crown over it.

Crowns can also help you with the following:

  • They hide chips and cracks caused by injuries, like when playing sports.
  • The can conceal stained and/or discolored teeth caused by smoking.
  • They are used for covering restorative procedures like a root canal.
  • They are strong so they add reinforcement to your teeth, which makes biting and chewing easier.
  • They are placed over fillings that are about to be dislocated.

Crowns and bridges conceal many issues, as well as add reinforcement for your teeth. They are great treatments that can improve the quality of your life and the appearance of your smile. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call Dr. Markarian at his office in Lancaster, CA.
