Crowns and bridges will help people in an aesthetic way and also in a function way. If they're missing teeth in the back, crowns and bridges can restore the full chewing function. If they are up front, in the aesthetic zone, then we can create a better smile, a more appealing smile, with veneers and crowns.
Our crowns and bridges will:
- Cover cosmetic flaws like stains
- Mend damage like cracks or breaks
- Save teeth you’re in danger of losing
- Restore full oral function, so you can easily enjoy your meals
To find out if we can use a crown or bridge to repair your smile, call LakeCrest Dental at 918-205-4386.
A Crown Can Fix Damage From Cavities to Missing Teeth
One of the most common uses for a dental crown is to repair cavities that are too large for a simple filling. If we need something between a filling and a crown to fix dental decay, Dr. Patten can use an inlay or an onlay, restorations that cover the entire top surface and/or sides of your tooth. We also use a crown following a root canal to seal your tooth and protect it from further damage. You can even use a crown to replace a single missing tooth by attaching it to a dental implant.
Fill Gaps in Your Smile With a Dental Bridge
A dental bridge can replace one lost tooth or several missing teeth in a row. Unlike dentures, a fixed bridge doesn’t need to come out for cleaning. We attach a bridge to crowns on either side of the gap you want to fill. The realistic-looking replacement teeth “bridge” the space between the crowns. A bridge can be attached to your own teeth or anchored to dental implants.
