Dental Crowns and Bridges
Additional esthetic treatments available at Cosmetic Dentistry of the Carolinas for the improvement of your smile include porcelain crowns and bridges. Both treatments help to restore functionality to the teeth while providing a more aesthetically pleasing smile.
Porcelain dental crowns applied in our office are an excellent way to repair damaged teeth while maintaining a natural looking appearance. They have the appearance of a natural tooth after being placed on a dental implant or over a severely decayed tooth.
You may benefit from a dental crown if you have one or more of the following dental issues:
- Broken, cracked or otherwise damaged teeth
- Misshapen or discolored teeth
- Teeth weakened by a root canal or mercury filling
- To cover a dental implant
- To provide structure for a dental bridge
If missing teeth or gaps in your smile make it difficult to chew or leave you feeling awkward about your appearance, a dental bridge might be the best solution. Dental bridges are composed of natural looking artificial teeth that fill the spaces left by missing teeth. Almost indistinguishable from natural teeth, the dental bridges used at our practice are composed of esthetic, tooth-colored porcelain and attach to crowns or implants. These semi-permanent restorations can restore both a comfortable bite and a brilliant, full-toothed smile.
A dental bridge might be a good option for you if you have one or more missing teeth that are causing the following issues:
- Difficulty chewing or talking
- Remaining teeth shifting
- Jaw pain, headaches and other problems due to an uneven bite
- Self-consciousness about having a broken smile
