Dental Implants, Bridges & Crowns Q & A

What are dental implants? 

Dental implants are titanium posts the team at Goldstein & Freud, DDS, PLLC, surgically inserts into your jawbone to support natural-looking prosthetic teeth. During a dental implant procedure, your dentist uses a special drill to place the posts. 

With implants, you can either replace a few missing teeth or an entire set of top or bottom teeth. The main advantage of implants is that the posts naturally fuse to your jawbone and provide excellent support for your prosthetic teeth. 

What are bridges and crowns? 

Bridges and crowns are both tooth-replacement options that can fill gaps in your smile. Crowns are protective caps that are tooth-colored. They can be placed over damaged teeth to restore their health and appearance. Crowns can also be attached to implants to replace missing teeth. 

Bridges, on the other hand, are sets of prosthetic teeth that are used to “bridge” gaps in your smile. They can either be bonded to surrounding teeth that act as anchors or securely attached to dental implants. 

The team at Goldstein & Freud, DDS, PLLC, provides custom-made bridges and crowns. It takes about 1-2 weeks for the outside dental lab to produce your crown or bridge from the impressions taken at your initial visit. 

What are the benefits of implants, bridges, and crowns? 

One of the main benefits of implants, crowns, and bridges is the improved appearance of your smile. All of these restorations are used to either replace missing teeth or restore damaged teeth. By choosing any of them to address cosmetic smile flaws, you’ll gain a valuable boost in your self-confidence. 

Also, implants, bridges, and crowns, help prevent neighboring teeth from shifting over into gaps in your smile. This limits your risk of tooth decay and gum disease. 

Which of these is right for me? 

The team at Goldstein & Freud, DDS, PLLC, works closely with you to determine which tooth-replacement option is most appropriate for you. You’ll have to consider factors, such as: 

  • Pricing
  • Your desired cosmetic results 
  • Your jawbone (you need sufficient jawbone for implants)
  • The state of your smile

During a consultation with your dentist, you can ask as many questions as you’d like to better understand each of your options.
