If you need a dental restoration, dental crowns and dental bridges are typically the treatments of choice. Our dentist will consult with you during a dental examination to find the dental restoration that will work best for you.
What are dental crowns?
Dental crowns are used when cavities caused by dental decay are too severe to be repaired by traditional dental fillings. They “cap” teeth after they have been cleared of dental decay and cover the healthy parts of the teeth to retain as much of the natural teeth as possible. They are custom fitted to match your bite and are typically made of porcelain to blend in with the rest of your smile.
What are dental bridges?
Much like dental implants or dentures, a dental bridge is a dental restoration that replaces one or more missing teeth. This long-lasting restoration is permanently fixed in place using dental crowns to fill a space left by a missing tooth. Tailored to each patient’s needs, dental bridges help create a more uniform appearance and restore the utility of the mouth and smile.
We invite you to meet with our dentist to see if one of these restorative treatments is right for you. Call our dental office today to schedule a consultation with us.
