Dental Crowns and Bridges Restore Smiles
Improve your teeth's function and appearance with crowns and bridges
“Do you have significant teeth trouble or pain in your mouth? We can help guide you back to good oral health and a natural-looking smile. Two common dental restorations we use to solve teeth problems are crowns and bridges.
“Nowadays, we have ways to repair your teeth with tooth-colored materials that are durable and safe,” explained Dr. Scott. “The final look is natural, so you can easily forget where you've had dental work done.”
Restorations such as crowns and bridges are able to:
- replace teeth
- repair teeth
- strengthen teeth
- improve chewing
- better appearance
A dental crown is a cap for the visible portion of a tooth. In our dental practice, we use only tooth-colored porcelain crowns, which are safer than installing metal permanently in your mouth. Porcelain crowns look great and last a very long time.
A dental bridge is a dental restoration that involves cementing an artificial tooth to two adjacent teeth that are crowned. This helps the natural-looking but artificial tooth stay fixed in place and adds stability to the adjacent teeth.
It's typical for people to need a combination of crowns and bridges. These restorations last a minimum of ten years and often much longer with regular professional cleanings and good home care. Crowns and bridges are a durable and permanent solution for many of our patients.
