A dental crown is widely used in restorative dentistry to rehabilitate a compromised tooth. Your tooth is reshaped before placing a custom-made cap over it. It covers it’s surface down to the gum line.
Crowns are quite versatile, allowing us to use them to treat several issues, such as significant decay, a large fracture, or to protect a weakened tooth from breaking. We commonly recommend them in combination with other treatments, such as a dental bridge.
Although they have a bad reputation for being highly noticeable, you do not need to worry about it causing an eyesore when your smile. We use all-ceramic materials to craft it to look like a natural tooth. Your crown will be strong and durable to last for at least 10 years before needing to be replaced.
Replacing one to three consecutive missing teeth is easy using a dental bridge. Custom-made teeth are designed to fill the empty space using impressions of your mouth. They are made to match the exact size, shape, and color you need to promote aesthetics and function.
The bridge is held in place by attaching dental crowns to the adjacent teeth. This allows you to regain your biting force to enjoy eating your favorite foods while providing your remaining natural teeth with the support they need to stay in place.
A dental bridge is an effective and convenient solution to help you regain a complete smile. It does not require surgery, and it is minimally invasive. Your new smile can last for about 5 years before needing a replacement.
After an initial consultation, we determine if a damaged tooth can be saved using a crown. Most often, we will recommend a dental crown in Springfield to treat:
