Is your smile suffering? Whether physical trauma, decay, or disease is to blame, dental crowns may be the solution.
Dental crowns can restore your teeth and give them the strength that they need. Porcelain crowns:
- Fortify the tooth against further damage
- Improve the shape, size, and color of the tooth
- Restore full bite force and smile function
We offer high-quality porcelain crowns and dental bridges at the or Fayetteville and Hope Mills offices. If you have broken, missing, or decayed teeth, we recommend one of our natural-looking restorations.
What is a Tooth Crown?
The tooth crown is the portion of your tooth above the gumline. Dental crowns are also known as “teeth caps” because they cap the visible portion of the teeth. You can use one or more dental crowns to rebuild a functional smile.
We design dental crowns from different materials, based on the location of the tooth and the preferences of the patient. Porcelain crowns are one of the most popular kinds of dental crown due to their natural appearance. Our well-versed dentists will let you know which type of tooth crown they believe will be most fitting for you.
Your dental crown will be bonded to the natural tooth crown using a dental cement. Your new porcelain crowns will greatly benefit your oral health and elevate your smile aesthetic!
What are Dental Bridges?
A dental bridge is a series of dental crowns, commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth. Dental bridges can be removable or fixed. They restore the abilities and the appearance of a healthy smile.
Two dental crowns are placed over existing teeth (a tooth crown on each tooth adjacent to the gap). Beautiful custom porcelain crowns will fill the missing space in your smile.
Not only do dental bridges improve your smile’s appearance, but they also prevent:
- Rotating or shifting teeth
- Bite misalignment
- TMJ discomfort and disorders
