Your smile is one of your greatest assets, but it is hard to show it off when you have missing teeth, large gaps between teeth, cracks, or discoloration. Many people feel too embarrassed to smile when they are self-conscious about the shape of their teeth. Fortunately, there is a fix that can bring back your confidence – attractive, durable porcelain crowns and bridges.
Shaped to your unique tooth and mouth structure, porcelain crowns look like natural teeth. They can be used over large fillings to give existing teeth structural support, or they can cover and repair stains, spaces, and chips.
In two quick visits, we can improve your smile’s entire appearance. When you come in for your first appointment, we will get the tooth ready and create an impression for a perfect, individual fit. You will be given a temporary crown for the tooth, which will last until you return for your permanent piece.
Bridges fill in for missing teeth, protecting your health and giving you a beautiful smile. Leaving an empty hole in your mouth can cause problems down the line, as the remaining teeth can potentially shift, become crooked, and develop decay. Bridges prevent tooth movement and look completely natural.
A bridge is created by placing crowns on the teeth to each side of the space. These support the structure holding an artificial tooth that fills the gap and restores your smile. With the right care, bridges can last a long time.
Concerns about costs, anxiety about pain, and apprehension about anesthesia prevent many patients from seeing their dentists. State-of-the-art technology, sedation dentistry, and modern techniques make today’s dentistry far more pleasant and affordable than it once was.
