Crowns Veneers Bridges

At Grieshober Dental, we provide ongoing care and maintenance to foster a lifetime of dental health. While the examination and cleaning of the teeth, mouth and gums helps to prevent many issues, it is sometimes necessary to intercede with a more involved dental treatment plan to help achieve the best result. When looking for a dentist, Enid, OK patients, and those throughout the state, turn to Grieshober Dental, where they know they will receive the expertise and caring treatment they deserve.

Preventive Dental Checkup  

Our practice uses state-of-the-art restorative and cosmetic technology to address the particular dental needs of each of our patients, helping them safely, comfortably and effectively improve their health…and their smile.

Crowns

In the instance where a tooth cavity becomes large and aggressive, it may warrant more than a traditional filling. A cavity of this size may pose a threat to the health – and even the life – of the tooth itself; and in this case, the dentist may choose to encapsulate the tooth with a crown. Made from a variety of materials, a crown is constructed from a dental mold taken of the tooth so that it is the perfect fit. The finished crown fits around the tooth and is bonded in place with dental cement.

The dentist may also recommend a crown as part of dental implants that replace teeth that have been lost or removed; or in instances where the aesthetic of a particular tooth is in question.

Veneers

Consisting of a thinly layered material, veneers fit entirely over the surface of a tooth; they are typically used for aesthetic purposes but are also quite commonly used as a protective layer over a compromised tooth. Veneers are typically made from either dental porcelain or composite materials and bonded to the tooth with a resin cement. 

This thin layer of material provides protection for a tooth that has experienced surface damage, thus preventing further erosion. In terms of an aesthetic choice, veneers have offered another option – besides crowns and other cosmetic procedures – to patients who want a solution for a discolored tooth or to close the appearance of spaces with the use of multiple veneers.

Bridges

A dental bridge, as its name suggests, is put in place to replace missing teeth; a common alternative to dental implants and partial dentures. There are a variety of dental bridges and the type and material of the bridge that your dentist chooses will depend on the location of where the bridge will be placed and your particular dental health and needs. Once a bridge is put in place – in the area that covers the missing teeth – crowns are cemented to the bridge for a natural look and a comfortable bite.

The need for a bridge is about much more than aesthetics. Missing teeth – even just one – affects the bite and can subsequently impact the alignment of the jaw. Of course, jaw misalignment can be the catalyst for a host of problems including increased risk of periodontal disease, headaches, and temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) – along with the variety of symptoms that TMJ can produce.

A well-placed bridge can protect the rest of the teeth, support proper jaw alignment and promote overall dental health.
