Natural, Durable, Beautiful.
When a tooth is cracked, decayed, or severely damaged, Dr. Sadati may recommend a crown. Crowns or caps are designed by Dr. Sam Sadati and our lab in the shape of your tooth to protect and cover your remaining teeth structure. Crowns are favored because of the versatility, strength and stability they provide.
A bridge is a device that Dr. Sadati uses to “bridge” a gap left by one or more missing teeth. A typical bridge consists of an artificial tooth, called a “pontic” attached to two adjacent crowns, called “abutments”. By anchoring itself to neighboring teeth for added strength, a bridge is one solution for teeth that have been extracted, knocked out or fallen out on their own. Bridge replacement requires that your mouth be free of gum disease.
Crowns and bridges are typically made from superior materials such as zirconium, porcelain, precious metals like gold and semi-precious metals or a combination of metal fused to porcelain. When selecting the crown material suitable for you, Dr. Sadati considers the location, health, appearance and function of each tooth.
