Dental Crowns and Bridges
Dental Crowns and Bridges? Which might you need?
Have a Missing Tooth?
If you’re missing a tooth, a dental bridge might be the solution to restoring your mouth and giving you a healthy and attractive smile. Dental bridges are meant to “bridge the gap” between two teeth — the gap where one of your teeth used to be. They consist of two dental crowns that are placed on the healthy teeth surrounding the gap and a false tooth that the crowns hold in place between them.
Why Are Bridges Important?
Dental bridges can prevent your teeth from moving, which can happen when you lose a tooth — the rest of your teeth in your mouth shift and migrate to fill the gap left by the missing tooth. This movement can lead to pain when biting, crooked teeth, tooth decay and jaw pain.
In addition, a dental bridge is able to:
- Restore the beauty of your smile
- Maintain your ability to chew comfortably
- Restore your ability to speak clearly
- Support your facial structure
Are You Looking for a Healthier, More Beautiful Smile?
Do you have a cavity that’s too large to be healed by a simple filling? If your cavity is changing the appearance of your teeth or causing further tooth decay, a crown might be right for you. An essential part of root canal treatment, dental crowns can help restore your smile, protect your teeth and bring them back to their original size and shape.
If you’re looking for a healthier smile, a dental crown might be the perfect option for your situation. Crowns can improve your smile in a wide variety of ways, including hiding tooth damage, camouflaging discoloration and supporting teeth that have undergone extensive dental treatment.
Benefits of dental crowns:
- Shield teeth affected by decay or infection
- Hide discolored or stained teeth
- Restore broken and chipped teeth
- Provide additional support to teeth
