Mend Many Kinds Of Damage With Crowns & Bridges
Our dentists can use crowns to fix many kinds of damage. Crowns will:
- Strengthen teeth with cracks, chips, and extensive wear and tear so they won’t suffer more damage
- Mend teeth with such extensive decay that fillings can’t repair them
- Fix broken teeth
- Hide imperfections like stains or misshapen teeth
- Replace missing teeth when used with dental implants
- Cover a tooth as part of root canal therapy
A bridge is created from one or more artificial teeth that are anchored in place by dental crowns on either side of your missing teeth. Since they are fixed in place, you won’t need to remove them for cleaning.
No matter which kind of treatment you receive, we treat you with advanced technology like digital X-rays and a digital scanner, which allows us to make impressions of your teeth without using messy goo. We’ll numb your mouth with local anesthesia, but you can also receive dental sedation if you need it.
Dental Implants Minimize The Impact On Your Natural Teeth
When you replace one missing tooth with a conventional bridge, our dentists must modify the teeth surrounding the missing one to prepare them for the crowns that will hold your bridge in place. If we attach a crown to a dental implant instead, there’s no need to modify any teeth. An implant will also keep your jaw in great shape by stimulating it during chewing, which maintains bone density.
If you’re replacing multiple teeth with a bridge, we can also anchor it to implants instead of to crowns on healthy teeth. Exactly like an implant crown, an implant bridge helps stop bone loss in your jaw.
