Dr. E Griffin Cole of TX offers crowns and bridges
Dr. E Griffin Cole of TX is a dentist who has chosen a career that allows him to enhance smiles of men and women in his community. He helps patients achieve beautiful, healthy teeth and gums and can assess many different situations that may occur and affect the smile. He wants to help everyone with common dental concerns and is proud to offer two restorations typically used by patients in restoring their smiles – dental crowns and dental bridges.
Dental crowns are restorations sometimes referred to as “caps.” They are made of porcelain and are fabricated to match the existing teeth. They are used in situations when a tooth has become weak or broken. They may also be used to cover dental implants and act as a false tooth. In other situations, they may be fused to false teeth called pontics to create a dental bridge. Crowns are incredibly versatile. They look natural, they are extremely strong, and they can restore function and beauty to the smile as necessary. Patients with dental insurance may be able to avoid out-of-pocket expenses for dental crowns, or at least reduce the overall cost by taking advantages of their plan reimbursement.
Bridges are used for tooth replacement. These restorations are made of porcelain and are utilized by fusing false teeth to crowns to make a single restoration. This restoration is then placed over the adjacent teeth for support. Bonded in place, these dental bridges are more permanent than partial dentures but just as effective as dental implants. They are a great option for many of our patients who are missing one or more teeth in a row and want to restore their chewing and speaking efficiency.
