We use only the finest materials, and Sarasota dentist Dr. Michael Ryan and Dr. Collin Ryan have the skill necessary to create beautiful, durable dental restorations. In only a few visits, we can restore your teeth to healthy function and allow you to smile again with confidence.

Why Dental Crowns?

A dental crown is a restoration that encases your entire tooth to provide strength and support. We can use tooth crowns in a variety of cases:

  • Preserve the structure of teeth with large fillings
  • Support a compromised tooth that’s too damaged to be repaired any other way
  • Strengthen a tooth after root canal treatment
  • Restore dental implants to form the functional, visible part of a dental implant
  • Conceal tooth flaws like cracks, chips, and discoloration

We offer crowns in various materials, including all-porcelain and zirconia, to provide the ultimate strength and protection. These materials also blend seamlessly with your smile.

Dental Bridges

Missing teeth is embarrassing and takes a toll on your self-confidence. However, we offer several options at our dental office to replace missing teeth.

Most dental bridges consist of an artificial tooth (pontic) supported on either side by a dental crown that we cement to adjacent teeth. In some cases, we may recommend a dental implant to stabilize the bridge and hold it securely in place.

The Importance of Restoring a Missing Tooth

Restoring a missing tooth isn’t always about your appearance; it also has a negative impact on:

  • Dietary choices
  • Speech
  • Self-confidence
  • Quality of life
  • Oral health

Your Sarasota cosmetic dentist can recommend a dental bridge to restore your biting and chewing function, along with your ability to speak clearly and smile without embarrassment.

If you are missing one or multiple teeth, our tooth replacement treatments can restore peace of mind.

The Dental Crown and Bridge Procedure

During your initial evaluation, Dr. Michael Ryan will determine if a dental crown or bridge is the right option for you.

Dental crowns typically take two dental visits to complete. During your first appointment with Dr. Michael Ryan, we take an impression of your teeth to fabricate your dental crown. While your new dental crown is being fabricated, we place a temporary crown to protect and stabilize your tooth.

Once we’ve finished your new dental crown, Dr. Michael Ryan or Dr. Collin Ryan will cement it and ensure a comfortable and attractive fit. We also make sure your bite is aligned.
