Dental Crowns & Bridges
Dental Bridges and Crowns
Our goal at Allen Always Smiles is to bring back your natural smile and prevent future oral health issues. We can help you replace missing or damaged teeth with our dental bridges and dental crowns. Missing teeth can affect your health, your looks, and how you feel about yourself. This process of restoring a lost tooth can be done using a dental bridge, and our dental crowns can enhance and restore teeth that have experienced damage or serious decay.
A dental bridge will help cover or “bridge” the gap between missing teeth. If you have lost a tooth, Dr. Susanna Martirosov may suggest that a dental bridge as one of your restorative options. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants. Dental bridges can restore your smile, maintain the shape of your face, prevent teeth from moving out of position and help you chew and speak properly.
A crown is ideal for people with broken teeth or cavities. A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that will be placed over a tooth. A crown is used to help strengthen and protect your tooth. Most crowns are made of a hard, white substances that will help your teeth look natural.
Dr. Susanna Martirosov may recommend a crown to:
- Replace a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth remaining
- Cover a dental implant
- Protect a weak tooth from fracturing
- Cover a tooth that has had a root canal
- Restore a fractured tooth
- Attach a bridge
- Cover a discolored or poorly shaped tooth
The most natural look can be found using porcelain crowns. Porcelain crowns generally have the same look as your natural teeth. With advancements in ceramics, porcelain crowns are as strong as metal crowns. Porcelain crowns typically wear at the same rate as natural teeth.
