Rebuild Your Smile With Crowns & Bridges
Dental crowns are a versatile restoration that we can use to repair many types of damage, including:
- Severe tooth decay
- Broken teeth
- Badly chipped teeth
Because dental crowns cover your entire tooth, they not only improve the appearance of damaged teeth but also fortify them against further damage.
Our team can use dental bridges to replace missing teeth. We will anchor a bridge to the teeth adjacent to your missing one, then create a replacement tooth to fill the gap.
Your Dental Crown or Dental Bridge Will Fit & Look Great
Our dental crowns and bridges are manufactured at a respected laboratory, but Dr. Miller will:
- Prepare your teeth for crown or bridge placement
- Take impressions of your teeth, which are used to achieve a precise fit
- Match the color of your teeth for a natural look
He will also provide you with a temporary dental crown or dental bridge to wear while your final one is produced, a process that usually takes a week or two.
Dental crowns and dental bridges can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain, composite, and gold. Dr. Miller will help you determine which material is the best one for your restoration.
Replace a Tooth With a Dental Crown & Dental Implant
Crowns and bridges have traditionally been used to repair and replace existing teeth. However, with the growing popularity of dental implants, they are also now used with these prosthetic teeth roots to replace a single missing tooth or even several missing teeth.
For teeth replacement, we first embed a dental implant into your jaw. Then we attach a piece of hardware called an abutment to the implant, and your dental crown or dental bridge is attached to the abutment. Your new replacement teeth will look, feel, and function just like your own!
