Dental crowns support the patient’s teeth that have been fractured or are experiencing structural loss due to trauma or cavities. They not only help with appearance, but support for long-term survival of what remains of the tooth.
There are several types of crowns for dentists and their patients to choose from, which depends on the circumstances of the dental work that needs to be performed.
As the name suggests, a dental bridge bridges the gap left by one or more missing teeth. Replacing missing teeth is not just about visual appeal. If not corrected, missing teeth can lead to additional health issues, including a misaligned bite, chewing problems and impaired speech.
During a dental bridge procedure, Dr. King reshapes the teeth on both sides of the gap. Dental crowns are customized to your unique needs and the dental bridge is cemented securely between your healthy teeth. You walk away with the same support and appearance as natural teeth.
