Have a cracked, chipped, or missing tooth? Don’t wait to see a dentist! We can restore your smile in no time with dental devices like crowns and bridges, which are designed to restore the look and function of damaged teeth. The Dental Suite team is dedicated to giving you a pain-free smile that you can be proud of again.
Crowns are used to correct a number of dental issues, like protecting a chipped or worn-down tooth, keeping a bridge in place, or covering a dental implant. Typically made of porcelain, ceramic, or a tooth-colored resin, crowns are small caps that fit over a problem tooth. They help build up tooth strength as a protective cover and are bonded into place for a lasting result.
Bridges are actually made up of two or more crowns on either side of a “pontic,” or a false tooth. The pontic fills the space of a missing tooth. If you’ve lost a tooth because of a mouth injury, or a dental extraction, bridges can provide a cost-effective alternative to dental implants.
There are a few different kinds of bridges, but the most common is a single pontic with a crown on either side. Those crowns are fit over each tooth, where the false tooth will fill the gap in between.
Crowns and bridges provide highly effective solutions when it comes to restoring your smile. You can learn more about our options in restorative dentistry by giving us a call or sending us a message online today.
