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

I came in for my new patient appointment and had Brianna as my hygienist. First off, she was absolutely AMAZING! From the beginning she made me feel super welcome. My cleaning and X-rays went smooth she wasn’t rough like some hygienist are. The doctor was also welcoming when he came into the room. If I could give this place 10 stars I would! If you are looking for a new dentist stop looking because this is the place to be! Definitely recommend! 😊

Great place - I wouldn't go anywhere else!!! I really hate going to the dentist, so I've put things off until it's been an emergency. This place was recommended to me, and they got me right in right away when I was in immense pain. The staff is friendly and comforting, and worked with me so that I could take care of the most pressing concerns while staying within my budget. I brought my 9 year old daughter there yesterday to get her first fillings, and they were just amazing in the way they explained everything and made her feel so comfortable! I also recommended them to a friend who's dentist wanted her to wait a week for a cracked tooth. Again, they got her in that day, of course. I really can't say enough about the amazing staff and flexible hours - highly recommended!!
