Dental crowns and bridges are two of the most popular restorations for damaged and missing teeth. The office of Chesterfield Hilltown Dental offers high-quality bridges and crowns in a variety of materials.
Your team at Chesterfield Hilltown Dental might recommend a crown, which is used to entirely cover or "cap" a damaged tooth. These restorations strengthen the remaining tooth structure while also improving its appearance, shape or alignment. Natural-looking crowns can also be used on top of implants to create a tooth-like shape. We offer a variety of materials including porcelain which can easily be matched to your natural tooth color.
Crowns have a variety of uses including:
- Extensive damage when the tooth is not strong enough for a new filling
- Protection of a tooth that is very weak
- Repair of a tooth that has been fractured, chipped or broken
- Attachment of a bridge
- Covering a dental implant
- Covering a discolored or misshapen tooth
Dental bridges can replace multiple missing teeth. A bridge is supported either by healthy teeth on either side of the gap or by an implant. If your natural teeth are used, crowns will be placed for additional support. A bridge is ideal for closing small gaps in the oral structure, eliminating the need for dentures.
Prior to the installation of a crown or bridge, it is vital for you to discuss your expectations with us. We will perform a careful assessment of your teeth, your bite, your gums and jawbone.
