Crowns & Bridges
What Are Dental Crowns?
Your White Park Dental dentist might recommend a dental crown to cover all the surfaces of your tooth. Crowns not only improve the appearance of an existing tooth, but they can also protect a weak or damaged tooth. Crowns are also the visible portion of a dental implant. Dental crowns are stain-resistant and can last for many years, and they look so natural people won't be able to tell them apart from your existing teeth.
You may want a crown to:
- Strengthen a large filling
- Protect a broken or weak tooth
- Attach a bridge
- Strengthen a fractured tooth
- Cover a stained or misshapen tooth
- Protect a root canal treatment
What Is a Dental Bridge?
A bridge can restore one or multiple missing teeth. Having a missing tooth can affect your appearance, the way you speak and eat. To fill in the gaps that are left by missing teeth, a bridge may be the perfect solution. Bridges adhere to the teeth surrounding the missing tooth where crowns are placed; a replacement tooth attaches to the crowns. This fills in the gap and prevents your teeth from shifting. Like dental crowns, bridges look like your natural tooth.

Sometimes when a tooth breaks or an older filling is lost, a significant portion of the natural tooth is no longer present.
How Crowns Work
When over 50% of the tooth is broken or filling material, the tooth can be prepared and crown placed over the tooth, to protect it from further damage. This longer-lasting treatment option will allow you to be able to chew more confidently and enjoy your favorite foods. We are able to use the latest dental material which are not only strong, but cosmetic. Please call us to schedule an appointment and discuss your options.
