At Gardner Dental Group, we aim to provide solutions that bolster our patients’ oral health and leave them with a beautiful smile. Two of the best ways to accomplish these objectives is through the use of dental crowns and implants. Burlington patients can receive both of these services at Gardner Dental Group, a dental office geared towards helping you achieve your oral health goals in a relaxed, comfortable environment.
After you’ve browsed through the information on this page concerning dental crowns and implants, Burlington dentists, Drs. Gardner and Metias, would be happy to discuss the ways these treatments can rejuvenate your oral health. To schedule a consultation, simply give us a call at any time.
When many people envision crowns they usually think of those odd-looking gold or silver caps. But, with modern porcelain crowns, only you and your dentist will know which tooth has been capped with a dental crown. Burlington patients have been treated with dental crowns to repair trauma, cracks, and seal teeth that have received extensive fillings or dental treatments. While many patients opt for the natural-looking porcelain variety of dental crowns, you also have the option of receiving porcelain fused to metal or gold crown. In instances where the root of the tooth is damaged, a dental implant may be the most viable option.
Your dentist will work with you to best determine what type of dental crown will work best to achieve your personal oral health goals.
If you have one or more missing teeth, a dental implant may be the preferred solution toward restoring the beauty of your smile. Unlike traditional partial and complete dentures, you will not experience gum discomfort, or additional jawbone demineralization with dental implants. Many patients who have elected for dental implants in Burlington have experienced improved speech, while also opening up many food options that were previously incompatible with their dentures.
If you are a candidate for a dental implant, we will refer to an oral surgeon to have the titanium insert (or inserts) installed. The oral surgeon will also fit your insert with a temporary cap. During a follow-up visit to Gardner Dental Group, we will then affix a porcelain crown to your dental implant.
