A Simple Fix for Common Dental Concerns
Missing, worn, or cracked teeth can be cause for concern, as they may hinder the ability to speak clearly, bite and chew properly, or cause self-consciousness due to an imperfect smile. Many times, the best solutions for fixing these minor inconsistencies in the teeth come in the form of dental crowns and bridges. Crowns and bridges can effectively restore the aesthetic appearance of a damaged or missing tooth, while providing functional benefits as well. We offer dental crowns and bridges to bring back your self-esteem and help you eat, chew, and speak with confidence once again.
Dental Crowns Repair a Tooth’s Shape and Strength
A dental crown fits snuggly over a compromised tooth like a “cap” that both protects and strengthens the tooth, while providing instant cosmetic improvements. Not only is the tooth strengthened with a dental crown, but the original shape, color, and alignment can be restored as well. Crowns can be either purely cosmetic by covering a discolored tooth, or functional by protecting a tooth after a root canal or other damage. Crowns are also used in conjunction with dental implants to complete the restoration process for a fully functioning new tooth!
Benefits of Dental Crowns:
- Restore a tooth after a root canal
- Protect a worn or cracked tooth
- Cover a large cavity filling
- Mask tooth discolorations
- Cap dental implants
- Restore form to a misshapen tooth
Dental Bridges Replace One or More Missing Teeth
Dental bridges are an ideal solution for quickly fixing one or more missing teeth. When a tooth is lost or extracted, adjacent teeth may shift into the empty space and cause alignment issues and difficulty eating. A bridge is made up of a row of crowns that attach to the two adjacent teeth and fill the space in between. This simultaneously helps prevent the teeth from shifting and provides a restored bite. A bridge can also be fixed securely to the jaw bone with dental implants.
Benefits of Dental Bridges:
- Restore biting and chewing function
- Maintain proper face shape
- Prevents adjacent teeth from shifting
- Replaces one or more missing teeth
- No bone grafting typically necessary
- Improved smile aesthetics
