Are you tired of staring at that chipped front tooth?
As a trusted dentist, we offer crowns for cosmetic and restorative purposes so that our valued patients can enjoy their smiles while preserving their oral health.
If you are missing one or more teeth, your dentist may suggest the use of a fixed bridge and dental crowns.
The gap left by a missing tooth can cause the remaining teeth to shift or move. It is important for your oral health to replace the missing tooth or teeth, and fixed bridges are one of the solutions for doing so.
Bridges consist of artificial teeth and crowns, which are ‘caps’ that go over the teeth on both sides of the bridge and serve as anchors to stabilize the bridge. Traditional bridges are usually made from porcelain fused to metal or ceramics
Crowns may be required for a number of reasons, for example when a tooth is cracked, damaged or a cavity or a tooth possibly requires a root canal or has received a root canal previously.
A filling needs a steady level of tooth structure to support it. When a tooth has experienced severe decay, a filling is unable to be utilized to recover it because both the filling and the tooth may split under the stress of regular use.
A crown reinforces the teeth whether it’s broken, decayed…etc. Ceramic crowns may be used to enhance look at the same time. They can be utilized to cover misshapen or badly stained teeth.
They can also be used to help align and enhance the appearance of broken or discolored teeth and can be made of porcelain, gold, or porcelain overlaid on metal.
Crowns are put over teeth to strengthen weakened tooth structure. If the enamel is broken or root channel treated, dental caps are utilized to provide the extra durability and strength the teeth need to survive for years.
Crown and bridgework is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases or just normal wear-and-tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques.
A porcelain crown sits over top of the tooth of the remaining part of the normal teeth structure and repairs the appearance and function of the first teeth.

- Stained or Discolored Teeth
