When you have a significantly damaged tooth, a porcelain crown may be necessary to restore your smile. Dental crowns can help you to have a healthy, beautiful looking smile once again and avoid further complications.
At Hope Mills Dental, we provide porcelain crowns that will match the natural shape, size, and shade of your original teeth. We can even create restorations in just one appointment with our same-day dental crowns.
What Are Dental Crowns?
The crown of your tooth is the portion of the tooth above the gumline. Dental crowns, also known as “teeth caps,” are restorations that are placed over natural teeth that have been damaged. The dental crown is meant to restore your damaged tooth crown to its original size and shape. We create custom-made porcelain crowns that will look natural and feel comfortable in your mouth.
How Dental Crowns Can Help
A crown is an excellent option for patients with damaged teeth. Here are a few ways porcelain crowns can be beneficial:
- Provide strength and functionality to the tooth
- Protects the natural tooth and the jawbone
- Keeps tooth crown from developing further decay
What Are Dental Bridges?
If you are missing teeth, a dental bridge is an excellent restorative option. Dental bridges are made of one or more artificial teeth that are anchored by dental crowns. The artificial tooth is placed in the gap, and crowns are then placed over your natural teeth on both sides of the gap.
Dental bridges can help in a number of ways:
- Better jaw alignment
- Improved bite
- Natural appearance
- Help keep other teeth from moving out of place
