One of the services offered at National Light Dental, Washington DC is the installation of dental crowns. Simply put, a dental crown is a cap that is placed on top of a tooth. There are various dental problems that can be solved by installing dental crowns. In cases of a cracked tooth, the dental crown will serve to hold the tooth together so that it is prevented from further breaking apart. Dental implants are also used in tooth implants and dental bridge. There are two kinds of dental crows: temporary and permanent. It will be your dentist’s discretion to decide what dental crown works best for your dental condition.

Dental bridges are ideally used between two teeth separated by a space. Its primary purpose is to replace the position of the missing tooth. Compared to other dental procedures, a dental bridge offers a lot of benefits. Of these, the most important is that it retains the original positioning of each of your tooth because the bridge will fill the gap of the missing tooth. This way, your facial structure, as well as how you eat, chew, and talk will not be affected in any way. As with dental crowns, bridges come in multiple types so that it is best to talk with your dentist for the best option.

The above procedures, crowns and bridges, are suitable if you are only missing a few of your teeth. However, when the damage to your teeth is already way beyond repair, then your dentist might recommend the installation of dentures. There are two types of dentures: partial and complete. The partial dentures are recommended when you are missing a few teeth in one row, and the complete one is installed if you want to replace all of your missing teeth. If you want to immediately have your dentures, you can opt to use the instant dentures, but there are also permanent dentures that you have to wait for two months before it is installed to your mouth so that the wounds to your teeth extraction are fully healed.

No matter what type of dental installation you need, be it crowns, bridges, or dentures, be sure to talk with any of National Light Dental’s dentists and specialists to ensure that it really is the right procedure for your dental condition. Visit us at 1145 19th Street, Suite 714, Washington DC, 20036 and we will schedule you for a preliminary assessment.
