Dental Crowns & Bridges
Dental crowns are custom restorations that are designed to encompass the entire surface of a natural tooth, providing valuable protection and support. There are various reasons why our dentists may recommend the placement of a new crown, such as:
- A tooth is significantly injured.
- A tooth is suffering from decay that’s too advanced for a tooth-colored filling to treat.
- A weakened tooth has a high risk of fracturing and needs additional support.
- A tooth is misshapen or cosmetically imperfect.
- A lost tooth is in need of restoration with a dental implant.
Dental crowns are also used in conjunction with fixed bridges, which can replace concurrent missing teeth along a single arch. This restoration is held in place by the crowns, which are fitted over nearby healthy teeth as “anchors” to keep it firmly in place. Many patients prefer dental bridges over dentures because of their more permanent nature; our team is also likely to recommend implant-retained bridges as an even more successful option that won’t require natural teeth to be significantly altered.
Full & Partial Dentures
Virtually everyone is familiar with dentures, but what you might not know is that today’s models are sleeker, more lifelike, and more comfortable than ever before. Our dentists can design the ideal partial or full denture for your smile’s current state, restoring much-needed function and aesthetic appearance so that you can eat your favorite foods, speak clearly, and smile with confidence once more. In addition to removable models, we also offer implant-retained prosthetics for an even greater amount of permanence and stability. During your initial appointment, our team can help you determine the best reconstructive solution for your personal needs and budget.
