There is little question that people judge one another based on appearance. Broken teeth give the impression of poor self-care, low self-esteem and little concern for your image. Besides that, even a single missing tooth can cause your other teeth to drift and become crooked. Missing teeth or broken teeth can affect your ability to eat and speak.
This is where crowns and bridges come in. Dental crowns are restorations that are placed over a tooth when fillings are not able to restore form and function.
Good news! We can now create crowns in one appointment using the latest technology called CEREC(r). Most dental crows require more than one visit. Now you can get your crown in only one appointment, start to finish.
A dental bridge acts to replace a missing tooth or teeth. One type of bridge consists of crowns placed on both sides of the missing tooth to connect the replacement tooth or teeth to them. Another type of bridge consists of the replacement tooth attached to the adjacent teeth with wing-like attachments. Bridges can also be supported by dental implants.
Crowns and bridges can be made entirely of tooth-colored material, metal, or a combination of both to give the most favorable look.
Porcelain crowns and bridges look like natural teeth and can improve your smile by:
- Replacing missing teeth
- Filling unsightly gaps and spaces between your teeth
- Repairing small cracks and chips in your teeth
- Whitening teeth that have severe discoloration or dullness
Natural-Looking White Teeth – All porcelain dental bridges and crowns look completely natural and give you a new smile that will make you look and feel great. They will change your smile and change your life. You’ll have a healthy, impressive and beautiful smile in no time.
