Dental Crowns and Bridges are dental restorations that replace missing teeth or severely damaged teeth. At Liberty Village Dental, we offer this dental service as an option to enhance your aesthetics, as well as improve your chewing, speech and the overall state of your oral health. By replacing missing teeth you also benefit from maintaining nicely aligned teeth, since you’re preventing them from shifting in the empty space in your jaw. At Liberty Village Dental, we examine your mouth, assess your case and determine which dental restorative measure is best for you.
- Dental Crowns are caps that get placed either on top of your original tooth root, or anchored to a dental implant. A severely decayed part of the tooth that can’t be repaired will have to be removed altogether and replaced by a crown. This is usually the treatment plan if there isn’t enough tooth structure to support a filling. If you’re missing a tooth altogether, a dental implant will have to be placed in your jaw to act as an artificial root for your dental crown. Dental crowns are strong, durable restorations that get perfectly secured to the root holding them, so they can look, feel and function exactly like natural teeth for years to come.
- Dental Bridges are also dental caps, which come in a set of three crowns or more next to each other. A dental bridge replaces missing teeth with the help of its adjacent teeth. The teeth on both sides of the gap get carved and prepared to hold the set of crowns. Dental bridges fill gaps, hold your teeth in place and function as good as your natural teeth. This strong and long-lasting restoration will make your teeth feel fresh and sturdy and will bring back your confidence. Dental bridges can be also anchored to dental implants to create more support and stability. Dental Implants also help lower the risk of bone loss.
At Liberty Village Dental, we’ll discuss all your options thoroughly and explain any side-effects. We will then decide together on the preferred cosmetic restorative treatment plan for you and the one you’re most comfortable with.
