Fill In the Smile that Makes You Feel Whole!
Unlike dentures, a partial or full removable solution to missing teeth, bridges and crowns restore your smile to its fullest state by affixing to existing or damaged teeth, for a more permanent wear. Crowns and bridges are affixed with cement, and can only be removed by our staff, guaranteeing you a tight-fitting fix for damaged or missing teeth. They also limit plaque and cavities in the existing teeth, as bridges or crowns are affixed to last.
Do You Need a Bridge or a Crown?
Bridges are dental appliances installed when one or more teeth are missing. The fixed form of partial denture is often made of porcelain or other metals, allowing our patients a strong and custom fit. It is secured to the surrounding, intact teeth, which may require slight shaving or reduction in size, in order to ensure proper fitting, attachment and alignment. Bridges are custom made for your mouth, to give you the best and strongest bite possible.
Crowns are caps, that not unlike bridges, are often made of porcelain or other materials, and are used when one tooth is missing, damaged or weakened. Crowns can cover teeth too damaged by large cavities for filings, as well as implants. They are molded and shaded to match your mouth, allowing a seamless fit that you can floss between, just like your natural teeth.
Bridges and crowns may be right for you if you suffer from:
- Discolored or Poorly Structured Teeth
- Weak or Fractured Teeth
- Uncovered Surgical Implant
