Dental Bridges / Crowns
A Stable Solution For Renewing Your Smile
If you’ve lost teeth due to accident, injury, or disease, we can help you create a permanent bridge to restore your smile. A bridge fills the gap caused by your missing tooth and can also prevent repositioning of remaining teeth. Other benefits include…
- Aligning your bite
- Improving chewing and speech
- Giving you a more youthful appearance
Dr. Phillips has helped thousands of people find solutions for missing teeth and would love to help you, too. He will consider your unique situation and health to help you determine what type of bridge is best.
What is a Dental Bridge?
There are two types of dental bridges — fixed and implant supported.
In both types, a prosthetic tooth “bridges the gap” left by a missing tooth and attaches on one or both sides of the surrounding teeth.
A fixed bridge is permanently joined onto the neighboring crowned teeth. An implant supported bridge uses an implant to help maintain the stability of the bridge.
ADVANTAGES OF DENTAL BRIDGES
- Prevents bone loss and a “sunken face”
- Permanent and durable
- Made from biocompatible material
- Fixed in place-unlike removable dentures
What’s a Dental Crown?
Dental crowns are essentially caps for your teeth that serve both cosmetic as well as restorative purposes. They can strengthen teeth that have severe tooth decay, or teeth that have several large fillings. Dental crowns can also replace missing teeth or serve as anchors for dental bridges to replace missing teeth. Lastly, they can improve the shape and appearance of a tooth.
If your tooth has become so weak that it can no longer hold a filling, it’s cracked beyond repair, or you just had a large root canal, dental crowns can protect your tooth from further damage.
The purpose of a dental crown is to provide an existing tooth with the strength and structure it needs to obtain optimal health. By restoring your tooth back to health, you can prevent it from being extracted. In addition, dental crowns serve as the perfect option for replacing missing teeth.
