Crowns and Bridges
If you have a damaged tooth or if you have a gap due to a missing tooth, you may benefit from a crown or a bridge. Come to Harlan Dental and let our expert team restore your smile.
What is a crown?
A crown is used to encase a damaged tooth in order to preserve its strength and integrity. You may need a crown if:
– your tooth is damaged due to tooth decay (cavity)
– your tooth is cracked or chipped
– your tooth is weak or worn down
– your tooth is severely stained
– you’ve had a root canal
What is a bridge?
A bridge is used to replace a single missing tooth or multiple teeth. To create a bridge, a fake tooth (pontic) is supported by crowning your adjacent teeth. Your bridge will look, feel, and function like a natural tooth. Your bridge will be fixed in place with dental cement, so it will be important for you to clean underneath your bridge to maintain the health of the supporting teeth.
Dentures, partials, and dental implants are other alternatives to replace missing teeth.
If you suspect you may need a crown or if you'd like to replace a missing tooth with a dental bridge, get the best treatment at Harlan Dental. Call today or request an appointment online.
