We use the latest advancements in dentistry to provide solutions that look natural while restoring your ability to chew, speak, and smile confidently. We’ll help you regain your quality of life and a beautiful smile.
What is a Crown?
A dental crown is a custom-made protective cap that’s placed over the entire visible surface of a tooth down to the gum line. It is widely used in restorative dentistry to repair a damaged tooth to save it from extraction; however, it can also be used as a preventive treatment to save a weakened tooth from breaking. Now, the use of all-ceramic material allows it to also have a commonplace in cosmetic dentistry to improve the appearance of an unattractive tooth.
What are the Benefits of a Crown?
A crown is a simple and effective solution to improve the health, function, and appearance of a tooth. Depending on your specific needs, it can be used to:
- Protect a weakened tooth from breaking.
- Fix a broken or chipped tooth.
- Protect a tooth after a root canal.
- Support a bridge.
- Replace a tooth with a dental implant.
- Improve the color, size, or shape of a tooth.
What is a Bridge?
Despite the latest innovations in dentistry, 120 million Americans are missing at least one tooth. The most conventional treatment to restore 1 to 3 consecutive missing teeth is with a bridge and crowns. We take an impression of your mouth to recreate the teeth you’ve lost. The prosthetics are carefully crafted to match the appearance of your natural ones to blend in seamlessly when you smile. The bridge is anchored in place by reshaping your adjacent teeth to bond dental crowns over them. Although you will need to permanently alter your healthy teeth, it gives you a solution that can last for an average of 5 years or longer with the right after care.
What are the Benefits of a Dental Bridge?
Even a single missing tooth can devastate your self-esteem and your quality of life. A dental bridge is a convenient solution to restore a healthy, beautiful smile. You’ll enjoy:
- Improved confidence.
- Restore your ability to chew many foods.
- Supports your adjacent teeth.
- Easy maintenance and care.
