Dentist Loop Chicago

Dental crowns are more than just protective coverings; they are a testament to modern dentistry’s ability to restore, enhance, and preserve. Serving a dual purpose, crowns not only rehabilitate teeth that have been compromised by decay, injury, or wear but also play a pivotal role in cosmetic transformations, refining the contours and appearance of teeth.

Whether it’s reviving a tooth’s original function or crafting the perfect smile, dental crowns stand as a beacon of dental innovation and patient care.

At Post Family Dental, we prioritize natural-looking dental restorations and patient comfort. The dental crown procedure begins with an impression of the teeth to craft the perfect crown in a lab. To prepare for the crown, a portion of the tooth enamel is removed to ensure the crown fits without disturbing adjacent teeth.

A temporary crown, which lasts about two weeks, is then placed using removable adhesive. During this period, it’s vital to handle the temporary crown with care. Once the permanent crown is ready, patients revisit our Chicago office for its secure bonding.

If a bridge is needed, crowns are attached to adjacent teeth, anchoring a synthetic bridge that replicates and restores the function of the missing tooth.

A dental bridge is a dental restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth. It literally “bridges” the gap where teeth are absent. A dental bridge is typically made up of two or more dental crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap (these two or more anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth) and a false tooth/teeth in between.

These false teeth are called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.

Terrific dental office and services. Everyone - the reception, hygienist and dentist are super friendly and attentive. I’ve been seeing Dr. Brian Post for several years for both semi-annual checkups and dental work which has been excellent. Also, for those that drive the two hour parking garage validation makes it super convenient.
