Crowns and Bridges
Tooth-colored crowns restore the integrity and beauty to your smile. They’re effective for individuals who have a weak tooth, or teeth, that needs protection or someone who wants to replace an older metal crown that can look unnatural when smiling. Porcelain, or tooth-colored crowns are an excellent option for restoring a natural look to your smile.
What Are Crowns For?
- To protect an at-risk or damaged tooth
- To prevent a tooth from fracturing or breaking
- To hold an already fractured tooth together
- To restore a tooth following a root canal
- To act as a replacement tooth following a dental implant
- As a support in a dental bridge
Dental Crowns in Marco Island
A crown is a restoration that covers, or "caps," a tooth to restore it to its normal shape and size, strengthening and improving the appearance of a tooth. Your dentist can create crowns that look like, or better than, your natural teeth.
A dental bridge works by literally “bridging” the gap left by a missing tooth. The bridge utilizes the surrounding teeth as support and holds a replacement tooth in the gap, which is supported by crowns on both side. The result is a cosmetically appealing replacement that is durable and strong as a result of being anchored to the teeth.
Choosing a Dental Bridge
- The convenience offered by a fixed bridge means you do not need to remove it
- The stability offered provides you safety in eating and talking
- Restores beauty to your smile
To achieve a certain look, we consider the color, shade and length of your teeth. If you have a certain look in mind for your crown, we can discuss this so when the procedure is complete, your teeth will be stronger and more attractive.
If there is a missing tooth or teeth and implants are not an option, crowns can suspend the missing tooth and is termed a bridge. With the proper technique and materials mixed with a little artistry, they can look and feel very natural.
