At Platte Canyon Dental, we provide dental crowns and bridges to help our patients preserve their oral health and create beautiful, complete smiles.
We love providing these tooth restorations because they offer so many benefits to patients, and we get to see the difference a healthy, functional smile can make in a person’s life.
How Do Crowns and Bridges Save Oral Health?
A dental crown, which fits over a damaged or weakened tooth, can protect the tooth and extend its lifespan, preventing the need for extraction. Your smile can also aesthetically benefit from a dental crown, which will fully cover the damaged tooth. We will customize your dental crown to match the rest of your smile to create an overall seamless look.
We use bridges to replace missing teeth, which is always vital. With missing teeth, your other teeth can begin to drift in your mouth, leading to bite problems. However, you can protect your remaining teeth and maintain a good bite with a bridge.
The bridge attaches to remaining healthy teeth on either side of the gap where you have teeth missing, filling the space. With a bridge, you can not only save your oral health, but you should also have an easier time chewing your favorite foods and speaking clearly.
What’s the First Step in the Crowns and Bridges Process?
The first step toward better oral health with crowns and bridges is a thorough exam in our Littleton dental office. Dr. Christina Linn will carefully evaluate your situation before offering you the best advice for tooth restoration.
During your visit, she will answer all your questions and work with you to plan a dental treatment that fits your dental needs and lifestyle, whether that’s a dental crown, a bridge, or another tooth restoration altogether.
