Dental Bridges & Crowns
For a patient who has experienced tooth damage or serious infection, a well placed dental crown can seem like a miracle. Your tooth crown is the portion of your tooth above the gum surface. When the crown becomes damaged or decayed, we can place a dental crown to restore your tooth.
Dental crowns are porcelain restorations that mimic or enhance your natural tooth shape. Before dental crowns were available, when the tooth crown was damaged or decayed, the entire tooth had to be extracted. By utilizing dental crowns, we can save teeth and help your natural smile last even longer.
The Benefits of a Dental Crown
- A dental crown allows us to save teeth that would normally require extraction.
- Using a dental crown, we can restore a damaged tooth crown. Dental crowns can also be used to enhance a tooth’s shape.
- After an infection, a dental crown will protect your remaining tooth structure and preserve your tooth roots.
- Our dental crowns are made with the finest quality porcelain materials and are made in the USA. Porcelain allows us to replicate your tooth’s natural color and luster. The people you meet won’t even be able to tell that you’re wearing a dental crown.
Each dental crown is handcrafted for each patient using personalized molds of their natural teeth. Our crowns can be used in many restorative dentistry procedures, including root canals.
Replace Your Lost Tooth with a Beautiful Dental Bridge from Dr. Coleman
Dental bridges are created using our top quality porcelain crowns. A dental bridge is an appliance that can be used to fill in a gap left by a missing tooth or teeth. To create a dental bridge, we begin by attaching crowns to the teeth adjacent to the gap. These teeth serve as posts and more crowns can be cemented between them to “bridge” the empty space. Dental bridges are a great option for patients with missing teeth because they allow them to enjoy the benefits of a full, beautiful, smile again.
