Crowns Overview

Dental crowns are caps that encase teeth to restore the teeth to their original size, shape, and strength as well as to improve their appearance. There are several reasons why dental crowns are needed. They include protecting cracked or weakened teeth, to restore broken teeth, to hold a fixed bridge in place, to cover a dental implant, or to cover misshapen or discolored teeth.

Benefits of Crowns

Broken teeth and decayed teeth can make eating painful, interfering with oral function. Crowns restore the structure of the teeth so you can eat in comfort. Dental crowns are strong and durable and they will restore full function of your damaged or weakened teeth. Dental crowns can also improve the appearance of your teeth. They can instantly correct cracks, chips, staining, misshapen teeth, fractures, crookedness and more. 

Bridges Overview

Dental bridges are dental restorations used to replace missing teeth. A dental bridge is made up of two dental caps one on the teeth on each side of the empty space and a prosthetic tooth in between. A bridge can be supported by natural teeth, dental implants, or a combination of teeth and implants. By a combination of teeth and implants. Unlike a conventional denture, a dental bridge can only be removed by your Frederick dentist because it's attached to your mouth. 

Benefits of Bridges

A bridge will fill in the gaps in your smile and improve your look. With a bridge, you will feel and look more attractive. With a bridge, not only will you fill in your smile's gaps, you will also improve the shape and shade of the teeth that you're crowning. Porcelain bridges look great and match the natural teeth well.
