Restore Your Tooth with a Dental Crown
In many cases, a crown is an ideal restoration for teeth that are weak, damaged, or unattractive. A crown provides permanent and complete coverage while sealing out bacteria and plaque. When a natural tooth is covered with a crown, you can be sure that the tooth is well-protected and strong. Crowns can also restore a tooth to its natural shape and color.
We offer a number of options to ensure that we are able to provide you with a superior restoration. We may recommend a crown that is made of porcelain, a porcelain-white gold combination, or full gold, depending upon your circumstances and preferences.
When is a Dental Crown Appropriate?
- After a tooth has undergone root canal therapy
- When a large cavity has compromised the strength and health of the tooth
- When a tooth has cracked
- When an existing filling is no longer healthy or functional (a broken or excessively large filling)
Restore Your Smile with a Dental Bridge
A permanent (non-removable) bridge is a common solution for replacing missing teeth. By replacing a missing tooth, a bridge can prevent your oral health from deteriorating. The presence of a bridge can stabilize the remaining teeth and prevent shifting. A bridge is can also be beneficial in its ability to improve your chewing capacity and reduce the workload of the jaw joint.
A typical bridge will generally consist of 3 units: an artificial tooth which is connected on either side by a dental crown. Each dental crown must be anchored to a natural tooth, making the bridge most effective when one missing tooth is located between two strong natural teeth. However, it is possible to slightly extend the length of a bridge in order to replace multiple teeth.
In a process that is almost identical to the single dental crown, a bridge can be made from full gold, porcelain, or a porcelain-white gold combination.
