Dental Bridges and Crowns

stock-9Are your teeth stained or discolored? Is your smile suffering from chips or gaps? Dental bridges and crowns can repair anything from missing teeth to a crooked smile.

Bridges and crowns can:

  • Replace missing teeth
  • Fill in chips and cracks in the teeth
  • Close unappealing gaps in the smile
  • Whiten dull or discolored teeth
  • Adjust minor misalignment issues

Dr. Merica can expertly transform your smile with dental bridges and crowns.

What are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are a permanent solution for teeth that are broken, discolored, or otherwise damaged. They are different from veneers because they cover the entire portion of the tooth that lies above the gum line.

Dental crowns are custom-made in a professional dental lab. Once Dr. Merica places your dental crowns, you’ll have stronger teeth for years and years. Your dental crowns will also give your smile a more even and appealing aesthetic!

What are Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges are devices that “bridge” a gap in a smile caused by missing teeth. A dental bridge includes two anchoring dental crowns and a false tooth or teeth.

If you’re missing one or more teeth, a dental bridge can restore your smile’s natural function and appearance. Your dentist will prepare the anchoring teeth, create the custom bridge, and place the permanent device to give you a full and complete smile.

If your restoration will be in the front of your mouth, we will fashion it with brilliant porcelain materials. Porcelain imitates the light-reflecting properties of real teeth for a natural look. Your porcelain crown or bridge will look beautiful and believable every time you smile.
