There are many reasons a dental crown can be recommended. Patients with decayed, damaged, or missing teeth can regain confident smiles with our custom-matched, beautiful restorations.
What is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a protective cap that is placed over the entire tooth. You may need a crown to:
- Provide strength and structure to a worn down, chipped, or broken tooth
- Safeguard a significantly decayed tooth
- Fortify a tooth after root canal treatment
- Complete your smile after dental implant placement
- Support a dental bridge
A dental crown can be structural, cosmetic or both. Dental crowns will give your tooth the size, shape, and color you want. It can also restore the tooth’s bite force and protect it from more damage. The doctors at Lakeville Dental partner with the best laboratories available using the most advanced materials to ensure custom made restorations that are strong and natural looking.
What is a Dental Bridge?
A bridge is also known as a fixed partial denture. It is a restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth by joining permanently to adjacent healthy teeth. We fabricate our bridges with high-end materials that blend in with your natural smile.
If you are missing one or more teeth that are next to each other, or you have experienced significant smile damage, a dental bridge may be the right choice for you.
