Boca Raton, Florida Dentist Reda Abdel-Fattah Restores Smile with Bridges and Crowns.

Eventually, by aging, neglect, overuse, or injury, teeth start to weaken and become more predisposed to problems such as wear, decay, cracks, and discoloration. Consequently, covering the affected tooth or teeth may be needed for better appearance and tooth longevity. The affected tooth is prepared by removing the decayed part and restored by re-building its body for strength using a strong material. The outer layer of the tooth is reduced to allow space for the crown materials. An impression is taken and sent to the laboratory, where the technician is to fabricate the artificial crown using porcelain fused to metallic alloy or a porcelain substrate material. Sometimes a full cast metal crown is made for posterior teeth when durable strength is needed. The artificial crown is then sent to the dental office for cementation on the prepared tooth with the proper cement material. While waiting for the technician to fabricate the artificial crown, a temporary crown is made to cover the prepared tooth. When there is a missing tooth, the two neighboring teeth are prepared to have crowns attached to a fake tooth replacing the missing one. To learn more about how you can experience a more beautiful smile through crowns and bridges, call Dr. Reda A. Abdel-Fattah at 561-391-5331.
