Dental Crowns & Bridges
Restore Your Smile: Dental Crowns and Bridges
Dental bridges and crowns are some of the most basic and affordable ways to improve a smile that might need a little work. Both dental bridges and crowns will make your smile more aesthetically appealing. They will also strengthen and fortify your teeth and prevent future damage from occurring.
If you have a tooth that is weak or broken, you may need a dental crown to restore your tooth to its proper size, shape, and strength. A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that can protect teeth that are weak from the decay caused by breaking or chipping. If teeth are already broken or chipped because of decay or physical trauma, a dental crown can restore those teeth to their natural appearance and function. If you have a large filling but the tooth is not strong enough to hold it, you may need a dental crown to support the tooth. Dental crowns can cover up teeth that are discolored or even the wrong shape or size. They can also be used to anchor dental bridges.
Dental bridges are used to bridge the gap that is formed by missing teeth. Using dental crowns and a pontic, Dr. Bare can create a dental bridge that will restore your smile after tooth loss. The pontic is the replacement tooth or teeth. After Dr. Bare has placed the appliance, your bridge will feel, function, and look completely natural. With a dental bridge, you will find it easier to speak and chew again. You’ll also enjoy a more confident and happy smile.
