Experienced in Improving and Restoring Teeth
Dental crowns and dental bridges are two restorative options that can successfully bring back oral function to one or more teeth, while simultaneously improving the appearance of your smile. Both crowns and bridges play specific roles in improving your teeth and require that they be highly customized, secure and snug, and look natural. We approach your restorative treatment with these factors in mind, adding an artistic eye and precision during the procedures to ensure your crown or bridge fits correctly and blends with your smile. If a damaged, missing, or cracked tooth shows when you smile, a high-quality crown or bridge restored by our experienced team can provide you with lifelong functional and aesthetic benefits!
Restore Single Teeth with Dental Crowns
Dental crowns are made of strong porcelain or metal material and cover over a whole tooth to provide protection and restore strength. A cracked tooth or a tooth that has a large, old filling can benefit from the added protection that a crown provides. Crowns are also used to restore dental implants. Similarly, after root canal treatment, a tooth must be “capped” to ensure that the treated tooth remains healthy and free from bacteria and infection. Crowns require that the tooth be reduced in size, after which an impression of your tooth is taken and used to create your custom restoration. We carefully inspect the color, shape, and fit of your new crown for accuracy, then permanently bond it to your tooth for an aesthetic, new smile!
The benefits of dental crowns include:
- Protecting a tooth after a root canal
- Restoring strength to a damaged tooth
- Improving the look of a misshapen tooth
- Restoring a dental crown
Replace Lost Teeth with Dental Bridges
Dental bridges are a series of crowns fused together that take the place of a missing tooth by “bridging” over the gap and attaching to adjacent teeth. These abutment teeth need to be shaved down before impressions are taken to be used to make the bridge. We take great care to check that all areas of your bridge fit snugly against your teeth and gums to keep the teeth sturdy and strong. Our dental bridges are highly custom, matched to the color of your existing teeth and made to align smoothly when you bite. If you are interested in learning about a more permanent alternative, dental implants can replace one or more teeth without altering existing, healthy teeth.
