Dick and Mitchell DDS will fit you with professionally-crafted crowns and bridges.
If you have caps on your teeth, or are missing one or more teeth, a crown or bridge may solve your problem.
What is a crown?
Crowns are made of porcelain or ceramic, and are used to “cap”, or cover a tooth that is damaged. Crowns will not only strengthen a tooth, but will improve its appearance and alignment. It can also be used for function, and will make chewing easier. All crowns will be matched to the natural colors of your teeth.
Crowns can be used when replacing larger fillings, for protecting weak teeth from fracturing, for restoring fractured teeth, for covering implants, and more.
What are dental bridges?
Bridges are used more if one or more teeth is missing. Gaps will force teeth to shift and rotate into the empty space, which can change a patient’s bite for the worse. This can further lead to gum disease and TMJ.
Bridges, along with crowns, are made out of impressions, or molds that we take. They usually last a lifetime, but can become loose and/or fall out. We offer full service on all crowns and bridges.
