Do you have problems with your teeth you would like to have resolved—beautifully and permanently? We offer several restorative and cosmetic dentistry treatments to revitalize your smile.
A dental crown is a cap that can be placed over a damaged or problem tooth. A crown is made of porcelain and is bonded to your original tooth or a titanium implant rod. Dr. Thompson will make an impression of your mouth and then send this information to the lab, which will then create a tooth crown customized for you.
Dental crowns can look just like natural teeth, so you can laugh and smile and get your photo taken with complete confidence. Tooth crowns also feel natural and often better than the damaged teeth they replace. They can function just like natural teeth and require no special care. Even better—they will never get a cavity!
Dental crowns can be an excellent choice to resolve several dental problems:
- If you have a tooth that has had a lot of dental work and may be fragile and susceptible to getting a cavity, a tooth crown can reinforce and protect it.
- If you have a missing tooth, a dental crown can be placed over a dental implant post and act as a new tooth and root.
- If you have a tooth that is too small, cracked, broken, chipped, misshapen, or discolored, a tooth crown can make a great replacement.
If you have a gap in your smile created by one or more missing teeth side-by-side, dental bridges could be a great solution. A dental bridge is an artificial tooth appliance that can either be attached to each side of the gap using dental crowns or secured into your jaw using dental implants.
A dental bridge can be permanently secured or removable. Removable dental bridges are like a retainer that can be clipped in place for stability.
