Choosing a crown or bridge at Pine Avenue Smiles by Dr. Ricky Pan has a number of benefits.
Leaving a missing or damaged tooth untreated could lead to complications like a tooth infection, teeth shifting, and more. With timely intervention from Dr. Pan, you can avoid these complications.
A damaged or missing tooth can cause you pain or discomfort, which could be severe enough to interfere with your day-to-day life. A crown or bridge from our office can help.
With a crown or bridge, your smile will look great and feel natural, and the natural function of your teeth will be restored, along with your confidence.
"Professional, dedicated, and caring staff that work together to provide the best overall care to maintain your dental health. I would highly recommend Dr. Pan to provide any dental services anyone would need at a reasonable price."
We work with the best dental labs to create high-quality porcelain dental crowns that look and feel just like natural teeth. Whether you have a large cavity, a decayed tooth, or a damaged tooth, you can trust Dr. Pan to restore your smile and your bite with a high-quality crown or bridge.
At your first appointment, your tooth will be trimmed and prepared. Dr. Pan will numb and clean the area, and remove damaged tooth material with specialized dental tools, shaping your tooth into a platform to which the crown can be attached. He will then use dental putty to take impressions of your tooth before sending you home with a temporary crown. Dr. Pan will work with a dental lab to build your final crown.
Once your crown arrives at our office, you’ll come in for your final appointment. Dr. Pan will check it to ensure it fits properly, then bond it into place permanently, restoring your smile.
To care for a crown, simply brush and floss your teeth normally, and see Dr. Pan for a teeth cleaning and oral exam every six months. With proper care and regular visits to our office, your crown can last a lifetime.
The process of placing a dental bridge is similar to having crowns placed. First, your mouth will be cleaned and numbed, and a minimum of two of your teeth will be trimmed to make room for the bridge. Then, Dr. Pan will take impressions of your teeth, and send you home with temporary crowns to protect your teeth.
A dental lab will make your bridge, which will be sent to our office. You’ll come back to try it on in a few weeks. If it fits properly, Dr. Pan will bond it into place, restoring your smile.
You will need to brush normally, clean around your bridge with an interdental brush, and floss your teeth and bridge to keep your smile clean. You should also see Dr. Pan for regular six-month teeth cleanings and oral exams.
