Crowns and Bridges
Tooth-colored crowns restore the integrity and beauty of your smile. They’re effective for individuals with any weak teeth that need protection, or anyone who wants to replace an older metal crown that looks unnatural when smiling. Porcelain, or tooth-colored, crowns are an excellent option for restoring the 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.
- 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, and strengthens and improves its appearance. Your dentist can create crowns that look just like, or even better than, your natural teeth.
A dental bridge works by literally “bridging” the gap left by one or more missing teeth. 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
- A fixed bridge offers convenience because you do not need to remove it.
- The stability of a fixed bridge provides you safety in eating and talking.
- And it restores beauty to your smile.
To achieve a specific 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 that when the procedure is complete your teeth will not only be stronger and more attractive, but provide you with the look you were seeking.
If implants are not an option for your missing tooth or teeth, crowns can suspend a bridge, and, with the proper technique and materials mixed with a little artistry, can look and feel exceptionally natural.
