Same Day Dental Bridges & Crowns
We utilize cutting-edge technologies to 3D scan your teeth, design a replacement and crown or dental bridge in Albuquerque, NM at our office. There are E-MAX and Zirconia (multilayer) crowns that can be milled to meet your needs. A dental crown (sometimes called caps) is an artificial tooth that replaces the visible portion of one’s natural tooth above the gum line. A dental crown is used when a tooth is too broken or decayed to for fillings to repair the problem. A Crown is for a single tooth (like a cap), while a bridge is intended to fill a gap between teeth using the surrounding teeth as an anchor. If you are missing a tooth, schedule an appointment to find out how getting a tooth bridge in Albuquerque, NM can restore your smile.
When treating a cavity, the dentist will remove the decayed portion of your tooth and fill it. This procedure is called a filling. A composite filling is also known as a tooth colored filling, since the material used in the filling can be closely matched to the color of your teeth. Composite fillings provide good durability for small to medium cavities, and the procedure typically involves removing less of a tooth than you would during an amalgam filling.
Implants are often the best way to replace missing teeth. There are methods for handling implants to replace a single missing tooth and multiple missing teeth. See our implant page for more detail.
Clear Aligners are a comfortable way to straighten your teeth. The aligner is transparent/clear plastic custom made to fit and adjust your teeth. See our Orthodontics page for more detail.
Dental veneers are thin custom made shells that cover the front surface of your tooth to improve their appearance. They are made of tooth colored materials and can be used to improve the color of teeth that have been worn down or stained. Alternatively, they can be used to improve the shape or size of the tooth. Veneers are for appearance and rely on your existing teeth for support.
