Replacing a missing tooth is about more than just appearance. It also improves the function of your smile. There’s no need to worry about speaking and chewing with the help of a dental bridge. Church Family Dental provides the highest quality restorations so you can get back to showing off your beautiful smile.
A dental crown is an artificial cap that’s placed over your natural tooth. There are multiple reasons why you would need a dental crown, with one being using it as an anchor for a bridge. Some other common reasons include root canals, dental implants, and repairing a damaged tooth.
Before we create a crown, we’ll need to create an impression of your smile so we can customize it to fit comfortably. Once that’s finished, the dentist will send it off to be manufactured. The dentist will need to shape the tooth to serve as a base for the crown. Then he will securely place it.
Once the dental crowns are placed over the surrounding teeth next to the gap, we will insert an artificial tooth and permanently connect it to the crowns. This provides a sturdy restoration without the need for surgery. This new tooth literally bridges the gap between your natural teeth.
Deciding on the type of restoration you want can seem difficult, but with the right direction from our experienced dentist, you’ll be able to choose what’s best for you. If you believe dental bridges are in your future, contact Church Family Dental today to schedule an appointment.
