Using dental crowns and bridges to restore damaged or missing teeth

How dental crowns and bridges restore the smile
At Chalfont Dental Care, our professionals are ready and willing to help patients replace missing teeth or restore damaged teeth. With the assistance of our dental team, patients can learn about the different types of restorative dental bridges and crowns and find the one that meets their needs. Dr. Clark can educate patients on treatments that can restore their smiles effectively and within their budget.
- Dental crowns. The dental crown is a common restorative dental solution for many of our patients. These crowns cover the exposed tooth, acting as a “cap” that can protect and restore a damaged, broken tooth. Teeth with cracks or chips may be covered with a crown, or patients who have had a tooth lost or extracted can use a dental crown over a dental implant to replace the tooth.
- Dental bridges. Dental bridges replace missing teeth in the smile. There are several different types of bridges, but the ones created in our office are made primarily of porcelain fused to false teeth that fill the spaces in between. Dental bridges use adjacent natural teeth to support them, allowing a fixed and more permanent restoration than partial dentures.
How do I know if dental crowns or bridges are right for me?

A bridge is a non-surgical way to replace one or many teeth. A bridge uses the adjacent teeth as anchors to support the missing tooth or teeth. With today’s dental advancements, a bridge can be fabricated in a fairly short period of time, using a metal or nonmetal foundation. Don’t let that missing tooth affect the way you speak, eat, and smile. Bridges yield immediate results that last a lifetime. Ask your dentist what type of bridge may be right for you.
