Dental Crowns & Bridges Little Rock AR
At Cloud Dental, our goal is to preserve as much of your natural tooth structure as possible to keep your teeth strong and healthy. Dental restorations like crowns and bridges allow us to accomplish that goal in the event that a tooth becomes damaged or lost.
Advances in dental technology make it easier than ever for Dr. Cloud to use conservative methods to restore your teeth to their full function without compromising healthy tooth structure.
CEREC Dental Crowns
CEREC dental restorations are an example of a new technology that protects the integrity of your healthy tooth and makes your treatment efficient and convenient. Using CEREC, Dr. Cloud can produce a fully functional crown that mimics the structure of your own tooth – usually in a single appointment.
Using a state-of-the-art laser camera, Dr. Cloud scans your tooth and transfers the digital image to CAD/CAM software. With the information gained from this process, we can create a completely customized restoration right here in our West Little Rock dental office.
Your new crown is milled from a block of pure dental porcelain to create a beautiful restoration that is stain resistant and durable. Each CEREC crown is custom shaded and shaped, and since they contain no metal, CEREC crowns look lifelike and blend beautifully with your own natural teeth.
Dental Bridges to Replace Missing Teeth
Each of your teeth serves a specific purpose, and when you lose a tooth in one part of your mouth, the rest of your teeth have to take over its job, exposing them to excess wear and tear. A missing tooth can also make it difficult to eat and speak properly.
Most importantly, the space left by a missing tooth gives adjacent teeth room to shift and move out of proper alignment. Poorly aligned teeth can lead to a number of other issues like problems with your dental bite, teeth grinding, and even difficulty maintaining effective oral hygiene.
A dental bridge is effective for eliminating these problems because it acts as a placeholder by filling the empty space. A bridge is composed of an artificial tooth (pontic) attached to a crown on either side. These crowns are then attached to teeth adjacent to the empty space to create a stable, durable restoration.
