If you have broken or fractured teeth, fractured fillings, or decayed teeth, you may be a good candidate for a dental crown. Porcelain crowns are highly durable and designed to last for several years. They are custom made to replicate the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth. Dental crowns can help create a beautiful, long-lasting smile. We usually place a crown to add strength and structure to a damaged tooth or to complete a dental implant. Dental crowns can restore the esthetics of your smile and also offer several functional benefits.
A dental bridge can replace missing teeth and is designed to last several years. We may recommend a fixed bridge to fill spaces where you have missing teeth, restore your ability to speak and chew properly, and prevent teeth from drifting due to gaps. Dental bridges are comprised of a series of two or more crowns fused together to span the space of a missing tooth or teeth. Much like dental crowns, dental bridges are highly aesthetic and durable, completing your smile and supporting oral function. We will provide you with special care instructions to help ensure your tooth replacement lasts for years to come.
