If you have a missing or broken tooth, dental crowns and bridges can restore your smile’s look and function. At Randolph Family Dental, we offer crowns and bridges made of porcelain and bruxzir.
Crowns and bridges are an excellent restoration option for your teeth because of their versatility. They can be used to treat a wide variety of flaws, ailments or issues. And unlike dentures, they are permanent fixtures that can be maintained and treated like natural teeth. Crowns cover or “cap” existing teeth, while bridges fill the empty space of one or more missing teeth in a row.
Crowns are applied to your teeth by covering or “capping” them. They are commonly used to restore teeth that are weak or damaged from a fracture or root canal, for a tooth that isn’t strong enough for a filling or to cover discolored or malformed teeth. They can also be used in tandem with dental implants to replace a missing tooth. At Randolph Family Dental, we offer our crowns in porcelain and bruxzir materials. We can apply your crowns in one visit through our CEREC technology.
Dental bridges a practical option when you have multiple missing teeth in a row that need to be replaced. When you have missing teeth, it can cause your remaining teeth to shift or rotate unnaturally into the empty spaces left behind. This can lead to problems like bad bites or temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ). Dental bridges are placed by attaching the ends of the bridge to your natural teeth. This is usually done by placing crowns as anchors, or “abutments” to the healthy teeth at either end of the space. This creates a secure structure for the replacement teeth that will go in the middle. Just like crowns, we make our bridges with material that look and functions just like natural teeth.
