Dental crowns and bridges use the support of natural teeth to help restore a damaged tooth or replace missing teeth with a permanent restoration that restores the function and enhances the appearance of your smile.

How Do Dental Crowns Work?

Dental crowns act as caps to cover a tooth for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Protects or restores a fractured tooth
  • Replace a filling if there is not enough tooth remaining
  • Used to attach bridgework
  • Change the shape or color of a tooth

To attach a crown to an existing tooth, the tooth is decreased in size to make room for the crown. An impression of the tooth is taken and sent to a lab where the crown is fabricated. The dentist will ensure that the crown also matches the shade of your natural teeth. Once the crown is made, it is attached to the tooth with a strong adhesive. The crown will function and look just like your natural teeth. You can also care for the crown as you normally do with brushing and flossing.

How Do Dental Bridges Work?

Do you have a tooth that has been damaged due to decay, fracture or advanced gum disease? In the case that it can not be saved, your dentist might recommend replacing the tooth with a crown and bridge restoration. It’s important to replace missing teeth because leaving a gap in your smile can cause neighboring teeth to shift out of place which only creates further dental problems. It can cause uneven wear on those teeth as well as jaw misalignment. With a crown and bridge restoration, however, you can maintain your dental health as well as restore the look of your smile.

Benefits of Bridgework

To replace a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth, bridgework will fill the gap in your smile using a replacement tooth anchored on either side by crowns for teeth, called abutment teeth. The bridge is permanently attached, and creates a strong and durable fit. The benefits of dental bridges include:

  • Ability to chew food as you would with natural teeth
  • Restore clear speech which can be compromised due to a missing tooth
  • Maintain your facial structure
  • Regain a confident smile
  • Keep your natural teeth from shifting out of position

Professional Staff throughout the office is my 1st thought. The business name if definitely perfect description. Over my five years i have experienced nothing but the best care from Dr. Bundy, the hygienists, and receptionist. They not only do their part in healthy oral care; they educate us on proper home care.The office staff always explains and discusses your monetary responsibilities for each procedure prior to. Very important to understand our cost to prepare our budget. Everyone is simply kind from entrance to exit. Very fair cost and professional 👏

I needed some teeth pulled and I was literally dreading it because we thought there was gonna be some issues with them coming out! However dr. Bundy was able to pop em out in no time at all and without any problems! I didn't have any pain either before during or after and I couldn't believe it!! I have the best dentist ever and don't even get me started on his trusted staff of ladies! Thank you y'all!

Love this place! To give you an idea how highly I think of Today’s Dental Comfort, I drive an hour to get there. Been doing this for years and have never considered going to a dentist closer to me. The staff are like family, very little turnover (a good sign!) and they are very fair in terms of charges & billing. Covid procedures are over and above what I understand other dental offices do. All around a wonderful place 😁🦷
