Oakwood Village Dental Crowns & Bridges

As part of cosmetic dentistry as well as restorative dentistry, dental crowns, and bridges not only enhance your smile but also improve your oral health and prevent potential dental problems from happening. Dental crowns and bridges are replacements for missing teeth, but they are each applied in different cases. At Oakwood Village Dental, we will determine which restorative measure is right for you.

Dental crowns are commonly used if a tooth is damaged beyond repair but has enough healthy structure to act as the crown’s foundation. The decayed part of the tooth is removed, leaving only a healthy base for the dental cap. So, instead of removing your whole tooth and leaving you with a missing tooth, we’re replacing the affected tooth with a strong, durable, and natural-looking restoration. Dental crowns can even be used without a healthy tooth structure to work with. By placing a dental implant in place of your missing tooth, the dental crown can be permanently fixed to that implant, holding it securely in place for years to come.

Dental Crowns

Dental bridges are a type of restoration for missing teeth. They rely on the neighboring teeth on either side of the gap to hold the bridge in place. The neighboring teeth are prepared to support the bridge and act as a strong foundation. Dental bridges, similar to dental crowns, can help restore the appearance, bite, and function of your mouth. This can make you feel more confident and happy when smiling, eating, or speaking.
