DENTAL CROWNS & BRIDGES
Get the Smile You Want With Crowns and Bridges
Are your teeth stained, damaged, or broken? Are you unhappy with the way your teeth look? The team at Rick Miller, DDS offers both high-quality dental crowns and dental bridges to provide you with an improved smile. Whether you need a crown to cover and protect a tooth you just had a root canal performed on, or you want to cover up a severely stained tooth, a crown is a great option to repair your tooth. A bridge is an affordable tooth replacement made of dental crowns.
Protect Your Teeth With Dental Crowns
Dental crowns are used to provide an additional layer of protection to your teeth. When a tooth is damaged, we often recommend a crown be placed over top to prevent further damage or breaking of the tooth. Dental crowns are also used to change the shape, appearance, and alignment of your teeth.
Crowns are commonly used to cover a tooth after a root canal procedure. In addition to protecting your teeth, our porcelain crowns mimic your natural teeth. They are used on top of implants and also on bridges to restore the functions of your mouth.
Each porcelain crown is custom made to fit in your mouth to provide the right look and feel when you talk and chew. One of the best things about a dental crown is that it can be placed on one tooth, or several can cover multiple teeth.
Replace Missing Teeth With Dental Bridges
Dental bridges are often used when a patient is missing one or more teeth. When a gap is left in your mouth where teeth once were, the area may shrink, causing your other surrounding teeth to shift as well. To prevent this movement, bridges are used to fill the gap and keep your teeth in place along with providing the look of a full set of teeth.
A bridge consists of framework containing crowns and an artificial tooth. The crowns are cemented to your surrounding teeth – usually one on each side of the gap. Once the bridge is cemented, it will remain in place permanently.
