DENTAL CROWNS – PROTECTING YOUR TEETH AND KEEPING YOU SMILING
Attractive, natural-looking crowns blend in with your smile while they protect chipped or damaged teeth.
A crown is a protective covering that restores and improves the tooth’s appearance while also shielding and strengthening it. Permanently fixed in place, your crown will last for many years.
We may prescribe a crown if you’ve had a very large filling or a root canal. A crown may also be used to hold a dental bridge in place or as a realistic replacement tooth with an implant. When teeth are misshapen or badly discolored, crowns (also known as caps) can make a big difference in improving your appearance.
We take the time to discuss the various crown options available and work out the best fit for your needs. The first step is to prepare the tooth and take impressions so that your crown can be crafted to match the size, shape and color of your natural teeth. Your new crown will be carefully bonded in place so that it is seamlessly aligned with your teeth.
DENTAL BRIDGES – AN EXCELLENT WAY TO RESTORE YOUR SMILE.
Feel free to smile with confidence again with a natural-looking bridge. It will replace missing teeth, improve your appearance and make it easier to eat the foods you love.
When you have lost one or several teeth, your other teeth may gradually shift out of alignment. This can cause problems with your bite and lead to tooth decay or gum disease. A custom-made bridge fills the gap left by missing teeth with one or more replacement teeth that fit snuggly alongside your natural teeth.
A bridge helps prevent your other teeth from shifting and the support it gives to your cheeks and lips will improve your looks and also help you speak more clearly. A bridge is secured to the surrounding teeth on both sides of the missing teeth. Most are fixed permanently in place, but some are removable.
