Crowns and bridges are options that we offer our Tecumseh patients to improve chipped, damaged or missing teeth.
Numerous problems can occur when your teeth are damaged or missing.
Cracked or broken teeth makes it difficult or painful to eat or chew. Perhaps your teeth are loose or crooked as they move to fill in the gap left by a missing tooth.
If lost or damaged teeth are causing you to miss out on some of life’s most enjoyable moments, our dental professionals can help.
Crown and bridge restorations offer an ideal solution for missing teeth. Using the latest in dental technologies, these restorations can be fitted easily and designed to match the exact shade of your teeth.
Crowns, usually made of porcelain, are fitted over existing teeth to improve their appearance. It's tooth-shaped cap that is permanently cemented over a tooth to restore its strength and shape and appearance.
Crowns are used to hold weak or broken teeth together to avoid further fracturing.
A dental bridge, like the name implies, covers the span or gap left by missing teeth.
Dental bridges are fixed on the supporting teeth, or on the dental implant that has been placed next to the missing teeth.
In a crown & bridge restoration, the pontic, or replacement tooth, is held in place by two porcelain crowns that are fitted over the natural teeth on either side of the gap.
