When a tooth gets severely damaged, whether from decay or a serious chip or crack, a Dental Crown can restore the tooth’s shape, size, and function to give you back your smile.
What is a Dental Crown?
A Dental Crown, sometimes called a cap, is a prosthetic tooth used to cover a deeply damaged tooth that is not strong enough to hold a filling or is too degraded and needs extensive structural repair.
Why Get a Dental Crown?
- A crown is a long-lasting restorative solution that blends in perfectly with the rest of your teeth
- A crown effectively reconstructs a tooth after it has been badly damaged, completely restoring the aesthetics of your smile
- A crown protects the underlying tooth from further damage and helps prevent damage to surrounding teeth
- A crown looks and acts like a natural tooth, giving you back the full function of your bite
- A crown lets you once again eat without pain or risking additional damage
- A dental crown is one of the best treatments we have to save a tooth from needing to be extracted
When you have one or more missing teeth, a Dental Bridge could be the best way to fully restore function and keep your smile looking great.
What is a Dental Bridge?
A Dental Bridge is a prosthetic tooth or set of teeth that fills in the gap left behind after a tooth extraction or when teeth have fallen out or been knocked out due to oral trauma. It is permanently anchored to the teeth on either side of the gap, usually with dental crowns.
Why Get a Dental Bridge?
- A bridge will fill in an unsightly gap in your smile with natural-looking prosthetics that blend in perfectly with the surrounding teeth
- A bridge prevents teeth from shifting out of place and becoming loose or creating other oral health problems
- A bridge fully restores your bite and the aesthetics of your smile
- A bridge is a long-lasting solution that will improve your oral health and quality of life
- A bridge is one of the most cost-effective restorative treatments options for replacing missing teeth
- A bridge can last decades when cared for properly
You don’t have to live with tooth pain, cracked, chipped, damaged teeth, or unsightly gaps. A Dental Crown or a Dental Bridge could change your smile and your life!
