Restore Beauty and Strength To Your Smile
Are you ready for a permanent solution to missing teeth? Are you tired of having to take out your dentures to clean them daily? Crowns and bridges are fixed prosthetics that fill in missing gaps in your smile while giving you the ability to chew, smile and speak with confidence.
Preserve Your Oral Health
Missing teeth affect more than just your appearance. When you have one or more missing teeth, the teeth on either side of the gap can shift out of position, causing them damage as well as affecting your bite. In turn, this can cause stress on your teeth and jaw, resulting in pain.
What’s more, the jaw bone that is exposed from a missing tooth will start to shrink, which can cause issues with the health of the bone and how it supports your lips and cheeks, giving your face a sunken-in appearance.
How Do Dental Crowns Work?
Crowns are used to cover a damaged tooth or to improve the appearance, shape or alignment of the tooth. They are also used as replacement teeth when placed on top of an implant. At Aesthetic Smile Design, Dr. Gary Edeer may recommend a crown in the following instances:
- If a large filling needs to be replaced and there isn’t enough natural tooth remaining
- To keep a weak tooth from further damage
- To save a fractured tooth
- To attach a dental bridge
- To improve the aesthetic look, size or shape of a tooth
How Do Dental Bridges Work?
A dental bridge is placed between the gap of a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth, and uses the teeth on either side of the gap to anchor, or hold, the bridge in place. The benefits of bridges include:
- Help restore the look and function of your teeth
- Gives you the freedom to chew and speak freely
- Provide a durable and long-lasting alternative to dentures
