Dr. Kari Mann Talks About How Technology Benefits Our Patients
A dental crown, sometimes called a “tooth cap,” is used to restore proper strength and shape to teeth, while a dental bridge is a cost-effective option for replacing a missing tooth. If you chipped, broke, or lost a tooth in the past and required a dental crown or bridge, you had to wear temporary crowns and wait weeks for your permanent restoration.
Thanks to advances in dental technology, you no longer have to wait for restorations to come back from the dental lab, nor endure the cumbersome and often messy process required with traditional tooth crowns and bridges. Dr. Kari Mann can provide you with a beautiful, customized dental crown or bridge in just one appointment. When you get a same-day crown or dental bridge in Cape Coral, FL, we use digital technology and an on-site milling machine to ensure an optimal fit, superb function, and natural-looking aesthetics.
Dental crowns are an ideal option for restoring teeth with large fillings that no longer have adequate natural tooth structure, protecting weakened teeth from fracturing and covering misshaped or discolored teeth that can’t be treated with veneers. While you sit in the dental chair in our warm and welcoming treatment suite, we take digital impressions of your teeth with our intraoral scanner.
The precision scans provide a 3D foundation to virtually design your new dental crown. Next, this information is sent to our in-house milling machine so our technician can etch your new crown from a block of tooth-colored ceramic material. Color-matching and polishing are done while you wait. Dr. Mann securely bonds your natural-looking crown to your tooth and the entire procedure only takes about two hours!
If you’ve lost a tooth but aren’t ready to commit to a dental implant, a dental bridge is your next best option. Bridges differ from crowns because they replace a missing tooth and are supported by crowns on each side of the false tooth. As with crowns, in-house technology enables getting a bridge far quicker than in the past, although this process may take two days instead of just one. Being able to restore a missing tooth quickly is important because even a single missing tooth can cause bone loss, bacteria build-up, shifting and decay in adjacent teeth, increased sensitivity and a hit to your smile confidence.
The cost of your dental crown or bridge depends on a few factors, including the number of teeth being treated and the restoration material you choose. Dr. Mann will discuss this at your first personalized consultation. We offer competitive pricing for dental crowns and bridges in Cape Coral, FL, and offer third-party financing because we don’t want to see anyone compromise their oral health due to financial concerns. When you receive same-day crowns and bridges from our highly experienced team, you’ll enjoy improved oral health, restored dental function and renewed smile beauty!
