Restorative Dentistry and Dental Health Services
Over the years, your teeth endure a lot. Some people may develop cracked, chipped, or entirely missing teeth over time. Your teeth may also sustain damage from general wear and tear. This may lead to significant damage due to cavities, heavy bite forces, trauma, or even normal functioning. If a root canal is needed to salvage a severely compromised nerve, the tooth may be especially fragile.
Many situations can leave teeth in danger of loss if treatment is bypassed. Dental crowns, or caps, allow these teeth to be rebuilt and covered with materials that mimic your natural tooth. Crowns and bridges can also help repair the damage and stop further harm from occurring to the affected area.
Not only are most “capped” teeth indistinguishable from natural teeth, but they're also extremely secure and comfortable. Modern dentistry offers more options than ever to help you restore and maintain an optimal level of dental health. While the strength and beauty of materials continue to advance, the skill of the practitioner makes a significant difference in every outcome. Our doctors focus on utilizing the best techniques for comprehensive care, helping to restore even severe damage to a beautiful and healthy smile.

As confirmed by the American Dental Association, crowns can be a great way to improve both the appearance and strength of damaged teeth. Crowns can be crafted to repair a single tooth, multiple teeth (including the entire mouth), or in conjunction with dental implants to fill a space. In fact, when missing teeth enter the equation, special consideration might be given to placing a dental bridge or implants.
One or more missing teeth can be filled with a dental bridge. If a bridge is required, we create an impression of the region around the lost teeth and construct a customized artificial substitute for you. A crown will be placed on each of the teeth directly adjacent to those missing, in order to hold the bridge in place. The bridge will then be secured so that it blends in with the rest of your teeth and gives you a natural looking and healthy smile!
Today's technology allows us to simplify the placement of a crown into just one appointment. After gentle shaping of the tooth, detailed digital images captured by a computer give us the data we need to design your new restoration. Powerful software coupled with our training leads to a crown milled from the finest porcelain available, within a few minutes. We bond your new crown firmly into place, and you'll be on your way!
For dental bridge appointments, more time may be necessary, especially if there are multiple damaged or missing teeth that require attention. After consulting with your dentist, you should have a better idea of what your bridge application appointment will look like.
