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

Love this dentist office. I had to switch from a long time peds office and this office is so great with my child who can be very anxious. She just got Invisalign’s and the Dentist took the time to explain everything to her and help her understand it all, including practicing how yo remove them. I am so thankful I found them.

Greatly appreciate the time Dr. Bundy took to put my crown back in place. The original work was done by an out of state dentist less then a year ago. Dr. Bundy offered to contact the insurance company to see if the work could be re-done and covered. Very happy the office is willing to work with the insurance company on my behalf.

The Dr's and staff here are so good. I really love that I found this place and recommend it regularly.You should stop reading there...That said, I HATE when businesses ask me to do online reviews! Hate it! Stop asking! I only do it for businesses I honestly like so that tells you something right there. But honestly, this is a plea to all businesses: STOP trying to engage your clientele to the breaking point. I don't need 10 text messages and 6 emails and 2 voicemails (especially after I've already confirmed) to be followed up with "Won't you take 5 seconds to rate us online???" Ugh just no. Far too much!
