Crowns & Bridges

GET AN AFFORDABLE LONG-LASTING TOOTH CROWN IN HOUSTON

NU DENTISTRY MAKES REPAIRING YOUR SMILE LOOK EASY

Sometimes, despite our best efforts, we can get cavities. We forget to floss for a few days, or we snack on a few too many sweets between dental visits. Here at Nu Dentistry, we understand that sometimes the tooth decay can run a little too deep, and a filling isn’t enough to fix it anymore. When this is the case, we recommend you get a crown. Dental crowns are the most traditional way to protect or fix a broken or damaged tooth that’s beyond the help of a filling. Also called a cap, a crown covers the tooth’s surface and restores it to its natural shape and size.

Although there are different types of dental crowns, from ceramic to metals like gold, porcelain crowns are the most common. With our dentists’ expert eye for detail, a porcelain crown blends in seamlessly with your natural teeth, and the metal restoration hidden underneath is extremely durable. With excellent dental care, your crown can last up to 25 to 30 years before it needs to be replaced. Dental crowns take two appointments to complete.

During the first appointment, your crowns dentist will file down your tooth, removing any decay and damage before creating a mold of your tooth. This mold will be used to create a natural-looking crown that will perfectly fit your bite and tooth alignment. We’ll then set you up with a temporary crown to keep your tooth protected and sealed while your shiny, new crown is being made. Once your permanent crown is ready, the dentist will secure it to your tooth with a dental adhesive. We’ll make sure it fits correctly and that your bite feels just as natural as it ever was.

If you have a damaged or broken tooth, a crown may be the answer for you. Give us a call today so that we can help restore your smile!

DENTAL BRIDGES

WE’LL HELP YOU BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR HOLLYWOOD SMILE!

When you have a tooth removed, you shouldn’t have to worry about hiding your smile. At Nu Dentistry, we’re experts when it comes to bringing new life to your smile with a dental bridge for a missing tooth. Bridges are a simple way to fill the gap between two teeth and have it look natural. Similar to a crown, a bridge is prepared by shaving down the neighboring teeth surrounding the gap and topping them, each with a porcelain cap. What sets bridges apart, however, is what’s sandwiched between the two caps: an artificial tooth.

There are multiple advantages to getting a dental bridge. They can maintain your facial structure by securing teeth that are drifting into the space left behind by a missing tooth. They can also stabilize your bite, helping to restore your speech and eating to normal. Bridges can also replace multiple missing teeth, making it a great alternative option for partial dentures. Are you interested in strengthening your teeth and restoring your smile with dental bridges? Call our office today at (832) 916-4144 to get started!

DENTAL BRIDGE VS IMPLANT

WEIGHING THE PROS AND CONS OF YOUR NEW TEETH

Dental bridges aren’t the only solution for replacing missing teeth. There’s also dental implants. What’s the difference and which one is better for your needs? Implants are a 3-part artificial tooth made of a metal post (or implant) screwed into the jawbone, a crown to act as the natural-looking tooth, and an abutment to attach the two. Implants don’t need any additional work done on neighboring teeth like a bridge does, but a bone graft may be required if the jaw isn’t strong enough to support the post.

Implants are great for putting less strain on neighboring teeth and are easier to clean and maintain, but they’re much more costly than dental bridges. They’re also permanent, as they’ve been surgically implanted into the jaw and fused to the bone. Dental implants also take much longer to complete as the mouth needs more time to heal from such an intensive treatment. Another drawback of implants is that they can only replace one tooth at a time unless you’re planning to have what’s known as an All-on-4 implant procedure.

This isn’t a problem with dental bridges, which can bridge the gap between as many as four or more extracted teeth at a time. To get the best of both worlds, our dentist may recommend you take a blended approach with implant-supported bridges. This option is especially popular for patients who’ve had multiple molars removed and don’t have an anchoring tooth on both ends to support a bridge. To speak with your dentist about which option is right for you, contact our office today at (832) 916-4144 today.

    The Best Dentist in Houston

    Sandra Archuletta //
    We have been looking for a family dentist for a long time, we have tried a bunch of places but nothing felt quite like home. Not too long ago we stumbled upon Nu Dentistry and met Dr. Ali. Not only was he professional, kind, and gentle, but he always finds a way to fit us in when we need an appointment. He’s also pretty funny! I appreciate that he takes the time to explain what he’s doing, before he does it. That really puts me at ease.

    Part of the Family

    Anthony Fernandez //
    When I come in for an exam, Dr. Alrajab makes me feel like I’m a part of his family. I haven’t had a single cavity or filling done since I started coming here, which is a real change from my last hygienist.

    Anxiety Has Kept Me Away...

    Johnathan Smitts //
    I usually have such huge anxiety when I go to a dentist appointment, which means I always put off visits until the last minute to disastrous consequences. However, Dr. Loggins helped me with sedation, so the entire process was a breeze!

    Never Thought I'd Say It...

    Alexandra Jansen //
    I never thought I’d say it, but going to the dentist is actually fun now. I recently came in for a root canal, and I got to sit back and catch up on Stranger Things without any pain!
