When teeth are damaged or missing, the confidence you feel in your smile can severely diminish. Not to mention that the overall functionality of your smile will be impacted as well. Dental crowns and bridges are some of the most common dental procedures that are used to restore form and function to a patient’s smiles as a solution to a variety of problems. With our highly aesthetic crowns and bridges in Old Greenwich, CT, you’ll be able to enjoy a mouth that looks and feels years younger!
A crown is essentially a porcelain shell that covers a damaged, decayed, or flawed tooth. The crown is designed to look, fit, and function just like a natural tooth, so you can use it just like normal. Dental crowns can be used to restore teeth that have been impacted by severe decay or which have received a root canal. Additionally, if you have one or more teeth that are malformed or damaged, a crown can cover them to restore both appearance and function. And for those who are missing a tooth, dental crowns cap implants, allowing you to enjoy a fully functional and permanent new tooth!
A dental bridge is a unique way to replace one or more missing teeth in a section of the mouth. Bridges are composed of multiple dental crowns that are fused together. They are attached to anchor points in the mouth, either existing teeth or implants that surround the gap of missing teeth. When in place, the bridge will span the gap and appear as if you have all your teeth again. Patients are able to smile with confidence as well as speak and eat like normal with a bridge in place.
