Dental Crowns Explained

Dr. Shepherd on Crowns & Bridges Read Transcript

A dental crown completely caps the visible portion of your tooth. Dental crowns are frequently used to conceal and protect teeth that have:

  • Severe chips and cracks
  • Become weakened from a root canal treatment
  • Suffered too much tooth decay to be fixed by a tooth filling
  • Become severely discolored or stained

Along with traditional dental crowns, we can also completely replace a damaged or missing tooth with a dental implant restored with a dental crown!

For those that need something in between a dental crown and a tooth filling, we also offer partial crowns, called inlays and onlays.

Dental Bridges Explained

Dental bridges literally bridge the gaps in your smile left by missing teeth. We offer two main types of dental bridges:

  • Traditional dental bridges, which are held in place by your surrounding teeth
  • Fixed bridges, which are anchored to dental implants in your jaw

We will discuss your options with you so you can make an informed decision. We can also help improve your comfort and relieve your dental anxiety with dental sedation options.
