Dental Crowns and Bridges
in Keene and Joshua, TX

Old Betsy Dental proudly offers expert services in dental crowns and bridges designed to restore your smile and enhance oral health. Dental crowns, often simply called “caps,” are custom-made to fit over your entire tooth after it has been prepared by our dentists. They are used to restore the tooth’s shape, size, strength, and appearance. Dental bridges, on the other hand, are used to fill the gap created by one or more missing teeth, anchoring on neighboring teeth or implants to replace the absent ones.

These restorations not only improve the aesthetics of your smile but are crucial for maintaining alignment and preventing other teeth from shifting out of place, which can lead to more complex dental issues. At Old Betsy Dental, we use the latest materials and techniques to ensure your crowns and bridges are both durable and natural-looking. Investing in these treatments can significantly improve your ability to chew and speak, contributing to a healthier lifestyle overall.

  • What is a dental crown?

    A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth to cover it and restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. Dental crowns are typically used when a tooth is damaged, decayed, or has undergone significant restoration, such as a root canal. They can be made from various materials, including porcelain, ceramic, metal, or composite resin, and are designed to blend in with the natural teeth, providing a long-term solution to improve dental health and the aesthetics of a smile.

  • What is a dental bridge?

    A dental bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth by anchoring to adjacent teeth or dental implants. It consists of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap—these anchoring teeth are known as abutments—and a false tooth or teeth in between. These false teeth are called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are custom-made to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, restoring the functionality and appearance of your smile while preventing the remaining teeth from shifting out of place.

  • How do temporary dental crowns work?

    Temporary dental crowns serve as a provisional, short-term solution, while a permanent crown is being crafted in a dental lab. These crowns are typically made of acrylic-based materials or stainless steel and are placed over the tooth after it has been prepared. The temporary crown protects the exposed tooth structure, reducing sensitivity and maintaining the proper space between teeth to ensure the permanent crown fits correctly. It also helps maintain the aesthetics of your smile during the interim. The temporary crown is usually secured with a weaker adhesive, allowing for easy removal by your dentist once your permanent crown is ready to be placed.
