Crowns & Bridges
Are you looking for a permanent solution to your damaged, missing, or decaying teeth? Crowns and bridges may be the answer! These custom-made devices will rejuvenate your teeth, strengthen your bite, and greatly improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile.
Crowns are essentially caps that fit directly over your natural teeth. These devices are made from a strong, medical-grade porcelain that restores the structure of your natural teeth and protects them from further damage and decay. We customize your crowns to blend seamlessly with the rest of your smile—they will match the exact shade of your surrounding teeth so no one will even notice you have them! There are a number of reasons why you may be in need of a crown, including the following:
- Remedy cracked or broken teeth.
- Cover dental implant or root canal procedure sites.
- Repair old or broken fillings.
- Fix damaged or weakened teeth.
- Restore discolored or poorly shaped teeth.
- Secure your bridges.
After just a few appointments, your crowns will be firmly in place. These devices should last you a lifetime if taken care of properly. To maintain your crowns, simply keep up a proper dental hygiene routine. This will include regular brushing, flossing, and routine check-ups with the dentist.
If you have a gap in your bite as a result of a missing tooth, bridges can help! This device utilizes beautiful prosthetic teeth that are secured by crowns on either side of the gap in your smile. Not only does this device look completely natural, it also uses the stability of your surrounding teeth to ensure that it is both secure and durable. Here are just a few reasons why our patients love these restorative devices:
- Bridges stabilize your surrounding teeth and prevent them from shifting.
- They improve your speech.
- These devices restore your chewing mechanisms.
- You will experience reduced jaw pain that is often caused by an uneven bite.
Like crowns, bridges are also a low-maintenance solution that can last you for a very long time. To maintain your bridges, be certain to brush your teeth at least twice per day, floss regularly, and schedule routine visits with your dentist.
These beautiful devices can renew your smile and boost your confidence.
