Missing and damaged teeth not only impact your smile, they can also negatively impact your confidence. At Rocky Ridge Dental, we offer restorative treatments that can empower you to show off your natural smile again. We understand that deciding which dental treatment is best for you can feel like a daunting task. However, our team will work with you to determine which of our restorative treatments will give you the results you are looking for based on your oral health history, your goals, and your lifestyle.
We commonly utilize dental crowns to repair damaged teeth and dental bridges to replace missing teeth. Depending on your situation, they both can restore full function and aesthetics to your smile. Read on to learn about these restorative treatments!
What Are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns fit like caps over damaged teeth. They are crafted from durable dental ceramics like porcelain and zirconia, and colored to match your natural teeth. Crowns can protect vulnerable teeth from further damage, cover broken teeth, hide severely discolored or irregularly shaped teeth, top dental implants, and much more. We custom-create dental crowns to blend in seamlessly with each patient’s smile, so no one but you will know that you’re wearing a dental crown!
What Are Dental Bridges?
While a dental crown restores strength and function to an individual tooth, a dental bridge is a great solution for a missing tooth. A bridge spans the gap left by a missing tooth with a custom-crafted artificial tooth set between two anchoring dental crowns over natural teeth or dental implants. Dental bridges help prevent some of the problems that can come from missing teeth, like sunken cheeks and surrounding teeth rotating or shifting into a gap. An implant-supported bridge can also help prevent degeneration of the jawbone.
