The mundane daily function of eating, chewing and cleaning is made difficult and bothersome when you have damaged or missing teeth. Don’t let it become a hassle! We can deal with those empty spaces in your mouth by filling the holes and gaps with a dental crown or bridge. They offer the functional restoration your mouth needs to tackle daily tasks—not to mention improving your appearance. Our Smile Dr. has been providing durable, top quality crowns and bridges from the same excellent lab we’ve worked alongside for 34 years.
What Are Dental Crowns and Bridges?
A dental crown, also called a “tooth cap,” is made to cover a damaged tooth or dental implant, restoring the tooth to proper function as well as maintaining its natural appearance. A crown is cemented to the base of a damaged tooth or implant and can last for many years.
A dental bridge is an excellent option for those missing one or more teeth. It is created by placing an artificial tooth in the empty space, which is anchored by two dental crowns on either side of the replacement tooth—effectively, bridging the gap.
Could You Benefit from a Dental Restoration?
If your teeth are not fully functional, a dental restoration is needed. A dental bridge can keep your natural teeth from shifting. Missing teeth can quickly cause bone loss and sagging of the gums, causing further issues for the oral cavity and facial structure.
Dental crowns and bridges can help if you have any of the following issues:
- Missing teeth
- Broken teeth
- Weak teeth
- Tooth with a large filling
- Misshapen teeth
- Severely discolored teeth
Consult with Dr. Cutler for your particular issue.
The Advantages of Dental Crowns and Bridges
Of course, the main advantage to getting dental crowns and bridges is the return of proper function to your mouth. But beyond eating and chewing, you’ll be thrilled to see a beautiful smile beaming back at you in the mirror. With a dental restoration, not only will you improve your dental health, but you’ll be improving your overall body health. Fixing your problematic teeth can also protect you from incurring any more trauma to your healthy teeth. Our dental crowns and bridges appear natural, so they won’t look out of place. Plus, as long as you take good care of them, dental crowns and bridges can last for a long time.
