Dental Crowns & Bridges in Universal City, TX

Heritage Dental is your first source for dental crowns and bridges in Universal City, TX, and the surrounding areas. For decades, we've helped our patients explore and select the restorative devices they need to feel confident about their smiles. Now, we're ready to assist you in securing the dental crowns or dental bridges you need to get back your confidence and your grin.

Dental crowns and bridges are excellent choices for patients that still retain some parts of their damaged or decayed teeth. However, if you're missing a tooth altogether, our clinic recommends you ask about dental implants, instead. Implants are prosthetic teeth installed directly into your gums. They look and feel like natural teeth, and they provide the structure and support you need to live your life.

Learn About Dental Crowns & Dental Bridges

Dental Crowns: As the name suggests, dental crowns are "crowns," or caps, for your teeth. They're made to fit snugly over the tops of damaged teeth and protect them from trauma caused by crunchy or jagged foods. Each crown our clinic creates is tailored to fit our patients' teeth exactly. This means your crown or crowns will match with the rest of your teeth almost perfectly, making the almost indistinguishable.

Dental Bridges: Much like crowns, bridges are tooth covering designed to protect damaged teeth from further trauma. But, in contrast, dental bridges cover more than one tooth at a time. Your dentist will fit the ends of your bridge over the teeth on either side of your damaged tooth. In the center lies the prosthetic tooth that covers that tooth and makes chewing safe and easy.

Porcelain Crowns Are Also Available

In the past, many dentists used metal to create crowns for their patients. As you can imagine, this made dental crowns somewhat less discreet than they are today. Thankfully, many modern dentists have graduated to using resin, ceramic, and porcelain during the crown creation process; this means patients enjoy access to more natural-looking oral prosthetics.

Porcelain crowns are sturdy, long-lasting, and most of all, almost indistinguishable from the rest of your teeth. Feel good about your newly restored smile no matter the situation—we guarantee most people will never notice your crowns. Talk to your dentist about your preferences for your crowns, and we'll be more than happy to show you what you can expect from your new teeth.
