Benefits of Dental Crowns
Dental crowns are used to replace missing teeth, strengthen teeth compromised by trauma or decay, and in some cases, add uniformity and aesthetic appeal to teeth.
Dental crowns are frequently used to:
- Replace missing teeth in conjunction with a dental bridge (see below)
- Restore dental implants, an advance restoration used to replace missing tooth roots
- Protect a tooth that has been fractured or cracked
- Strengthen a tooth that has undergone root canal treatment
- Conceal small or misshapen teeth
- Lend symmetry to teeth
- Restore small or underdeveloped teeth
A dental bridge fills the gap left by a missing tooth. They are sometimes called partial dentures. Bridges can be supported in one of two ways: they may be anchored to crowns covering two adjacent teeth, or used to restore a dental implant. Our bridges not only restore the balance and functionality of your smile, but are designed to blend seamlessly with your existing teeth.
Crowns and bridges have restorative as well as cosmetic applications. The fundamental purpose of these restorations is to repair compromised teeth or replace missing teeth. However, our restorations are crafted with great care to match the appearance of your existing teeth to achieve an overall natural look in your smile. Modern dentistry techniques allow us to provide excellent functionality as well as aesthetics.
