Dental Crowns & Bridges for Helotes & Alamo Ranch
Fractures, decay, tooth loss – patients suffer from these oral health problems every day, and the truth is that they’ll only become worse over time without professional help. Here in Helotes, Dr. Aiyana Anderson and Dr. Michele Moreno want to be your support during these trying times. We offer several restorative services that are designed to revitalize your tooth’s structure and function, with crown and bridge treatment at the top of the list. Better yet, Alamo Springs Dental has all-ceramic materials available as well for increased bio-compatibility and a naturally beautiful appearance. Patients from Leon Valley, Alamo Heights, Helotes, Balcones Heights, Alamo Ranch, Stillwater Ranch, Castroville, Bandera, Grey Forest, and beyond are welcome!
Crowns are designed to effectively “cap” over an individual tooth, rebuilding lost structure and restoring its original level of function. Our doctors may recommend dental crowns as a treatment solution for a wide variety of problems, including severe decay that can’t be treated by a filling, a significant oral injury, overall weakening of a tooth caused by bruxism, or even purely cosmetic concerns. Your new crown will be precisely designed and personalized to seamlessly match the rest of your unique smile for an exceptional final result.
The process of receiving a crown usually requires two to three appointments. First, Dr. Moreno or Dr. Anderson will carefully remove the damaged portions of your tooth while making sure to preserve as much healthy structure as possible. Then, impressions will be captured and sent off to a trusted dental lab; in the meantime, we’ll provide you with a similar temporary restoration so that you don’t have to experience any disruption in your regular life. Finally, you’ll return to our Helotes office some time later so that we can place the finished crown and ensure that you’re fully satisfied.
Bridges are often a great reconstructive solution for patients who’ve lost one or more teeth in a row and still have healthy teeth located on either side of this gap. The prosthetic is designed with two additional dental crowns on both sides that serve as “anchors,” fitting securely over the healthy teeth for a much more natural and confident fit. Like crowns, dental bridges usually require two to three appointments to complete, and in the meantime, our team at Alamo Springs Dental will provide you with a temporary piece. Your comfort is very important to us, and we hope to give you plenty of new reasons to smile once you see how we’ve transformed your oral health and beauty for the better.
