With dental crowns, we can repair damaged teeth and replace your missing teeth with natural-looking crowns.
Your crowns will be matched to the shade of the rest of your teeth for a smile that looks natural. We can make any adjustments right then and there to be sure you’re completely satisfied.
Dental crowns can be used to restore a dental implant, fix a broken or cracked tooth, cover a tooth after a cavity or root canal treatment to strengthen it, or to fix the appearance of a misshapen or discolored tooth.
A dental bridge is another way to repair damaged teeth or replace missing teeth. With a bridge, dental crowns are bonded to your natural teeth on either side of the space where your lost tooth once was. A dental crown is bonded to the crowns on either side to fill the gap and restore your smile.
If you’re missing several or all of your teeth, you may want to consider dentures. Dentures can replace lost teeth and give you a natural-looking and fully functional set of teeth.
It’s important to note that with the help of several advancements in recent years, dentures aren’t the same as they used to be. While traditional dentures are held in place with an adhesive or your saliva, dental implants can help secure your dentures and keep them from moving.
Dental implants are one of the most worthy investments you can make to restore lost teeth. The implants bond with your jawbone and work just like the roots of your tooth. They’re a dependable way to prevent your replacement teeth from coming loose.
To be a candidate for dental implants, you have to have healthy gums and bone. Additionally, your jaw bone has to have a certain density or else it can’t properly bond with the implant and secure it in place.
