Porcelain Crowns & Bridges in Rowley
Many older patients will be familiar with the noticeable silver and gold crowns that were commonplace not too long ago. While effective enough in rebuilding damaged or lost teeth, these restorative solutions are noticeably unnatural, which can damage self-confidence. Thankfully, Dr. St. Clair welcomes patients from Ipswich and beyond to enjoy the benefits of high-quality porcelain restorations. In addition to their beautiful appearance, porcelain crowns and bridges are conservative, biocompatible, and comfortable. Are you in need of a new restoration? Contact our Rowley practice today to schedule a consultation.
When the size of a filling required exceeds a certain size or structural ability to support the tooth, it may require a crown (cap). There are many different types of materials used for these restorations, but Dr. St. Clair always uses what he feels will give the best-looking and longest-lasting result. He welcomes discussion of these materials for your particular situation, if you’re interested. We use only the highest quality – American – dental labs. There is a difference. Below are before and after photos of crowns done by Dr. St. Clair.
A bridge is a fixed (non-removable) restoration used to replace one or multiple teeth. This shouldn’t be confused with a partial denture, which is removable. A bridge is attached with crowns on teeth adjacent to spaces and is dependent on the health and longevity of the teeth to which it is attached. Bridges are not placed as much anymore because of dental implants, but they’re still useful in some situations.
