The benefits of dental crowns and bridges for smile restoration

Damaged, decayed, and missing teeth make it difficult to have confidence in your smile. Dental crowns are a permanent restoration technique that conceals cosmetic imperfections and restores the tooth’s natural function and appearance. Dental bridges are used to bridge the gap left behind when teeth are lost or extracted. At Franklin A. Landers, D.D.S., F.A.G.D., our goal is to provide undetectable dentistry. We offer porcelain crowns and dental bridges to repair your smile.

What are dental crowns?

Quality dental crowns are an excellent solution for major dental problems caused by accidents or diseases. These customized caps are placed over a damaged or decayed tooth to restore its strength, look, and function. At our office, we offer durable porcelain crowns. These avoid the issues found with traditional metal crowns that wear down over time and may even stain your teeth. We’ll custom-make your crown to match the shade of your natural teeth, allowing your restored tooth to blend seamlessly with the rest of your smile.

When are dental crowns necessary?

Dr. Landers may recommend placing a dental crown for patients with:

  • Cracked, chipped, or broken teeth
  • Severely decayed teeth
  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Teeth treated with root canal therapy
  • Weakened or worn-down teeth

What are the benefits of dental crowns?

Dental crowns are one of the most popular restorative treatments for damaged or decayed teeth. This is because of the many benefits they provide, such as:

  • Strengthens and preserves teeth
  • Made of long-lasting and durable material
  • Quick and minimally-invasive procedure
  • Restores the look and function of teeth
  • Protects the restored tooth from bacteria and cavities

 What are dental bridges?

Dental bridges are a restorative solution designed to replace one or several teeth in a row. This porcelain restoration uses dental crowns fused to false teeth called pontics and utilizes the surrounding teeth to support this custom restoration. Dental bridges are an economical alternative to partial dentures or dental implants.

What are the benefits of dental bridges?

Dental bridges have several advantages, making them an appropriate choice for many patients. Bridges are:

  • Customized to match the existing teeth in the smile
  • Restore functionality, allowing patients to enjoy their favorite foods
  • Easy to care for
  • Can last several years with proper care
  • Replace one or several of the teeth in a row
  • Are less expensive than dental implants
