Restore Beauty Back to Unsightly Teeth
Missing, chipped, or fractured teeth can cause self-consciousness about smiling, difficulty speaking, and the potential for further damage to occur. If you have a damaged tooth due to trauma or decay, or if you are missing one or more teeth in a row, dental crowns and bridges can help restore biting and chewing function, your facial appearance, and the aesthetics of your smile. We offer high-quality restorations that protect your teeth from future damage and help return them to their original shape, size, and color. Your beautiful restored teeth will appear natural and help bring back confidence in your smile!

- In good oral health
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Teeth weakened by trauma

- Decayed or damaged teeth

- Missing one tooth or a row of teeth
Do I Need a Dental Crown or a Dental Bridge?
tooth-colored “caps” that fit over teeth to help restore their original size and shape, while also helping to return function and appearance to the tooth. Crowns are effective for single teeth that have been damaged or weakened by trauma or disease. Many times, if a tooth has a noticeable chip or is broken, a crown can be placed over the tooth to protect it from further fracture. If you have undergone a root canal, we will place a crown over the treated tooth for added strength. We also restore dental implants with a crown that is secured to the implant abutment to mimic the function of a natural tooth.
Dental Bridges can be either a removable or permanent replacement for a single missing tooth or a row of missing teeth. Dental bridges are made up of two or more crowns attached together to form a single restoration. This option helps to keep surrounding teeth from shifting into the empty space, while improving biting and chewing strength and facial appearance. We attach bridges to the teeth on either side of an empty space to fill the gap. We can also provide bridges for patients who are preparing to receive dental implants in the future.
