Would you like to close the gaps in your smile with Porcelain Partial Crowns, veneers, or bridges?  Many would like to do this but they could use more information!

This blog reviews one method for closing gaps between teeth with Porcelain Partial Crowns and Bridges.  Porcelain partial crowns are described as well as the benefits of this treatment.

Our patient did not like the gaps present between her teeth or the missing lower tooth. Porcelain partial crowns, veneers and a bridge were the answer.

If you are one of many people with gaps in your smile, I hope this blog has some good information for you!  Our office has been using the wonders of porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns or partial crowns and bridges to close spaces for years.  We often see people who have missing teeth or who have teeth that just don’t seem big enough to fill the space available st that even though they have the correct number of teeth, there are still gaps between the teeth.

We work with a high quality dental laboratory that has been completing porcelain restorations for years.  Our dental laboratory technician is accredited with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD).  Please wee our web site at www.juliegillisdds.com for more information on the accreditation process and what that means for our patients.  Dr. Julie Gillis is also accredited with the AACD.

What are porcelain partial crowns and bridges?

Porcelain is stacked or pressed on a model of your tooth to create an ideal form and color.  Because porcelain restorations have improved significantly, a talented dentist and laboratory technician team can create restorations that mimic tooth structure.  If the porcelain material is applied in layers, the lab technician may use 10 – 20 layers or more to create the shape, form and color that is required along with any special characteristics that are present in the natural dentition that you want to duplicate.  Gone should be the days when it was obvious if someone has had dental work!

You should not be able to look at someone’s teeth and know that they have had dental work done to create their beautiful smile!  Porcelain partial crowns and bridges should look very natural in all areas of your mouth.  They must also be easy for you to clean so that you can make your new restorations last as long as possible.  The goal is to conserve as much of your teeth as possible, while creating ideal restorations.  Technically, a porcelain veneer covers just the front of the tooth.  When we are adding width and length to the tooth, the porcelain will need to wrap the sides and the top (incisal edge) of the tooth.  This becomes a porcelain partial veneer.  When there is enough of your own tooth wrapped with porcelain, the correct term would be a porcelain crown or cap.

When porcelain crowns span a gap between teeth and are joined together with one or more artificial porcelain crowns between them, you have a porcelain bridge similar to the one shown here.  There is a limit to the length of span that two teeth should support as this puts extra stress on the supporting teeth.

Our office would be happy to offer a consult to review is porcelain partial crowns or bridges are right for you!  We are in Mesa County, Colorado.  Please visit our Facebook page at Julie M Gillis DDS to see some of our cases!  Or visit our website at www.juliegillisdds.com for more information.

Yours for better dental health,

  8. I have noticed that of all kinds of insurance, health insurance is the most marked by controversy because of the turmoil between the insurance plan company’s necessity to remain afloat and the consumer’s need to have insurance policies. Insurance companies’ profits on well being plans have become low, as a result some companies struggle to make money. Thanks for the ideas you talk about through this blog.

  18. I have been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
