Dental Crowns & Bridges Repair Hurting Teeth in Blackwell
While every part of the body can suffer permanent damage, teeth are unique in that they have hardly any ability to self-repair. That’s why restorative care like dental crowns and bridges become necessary when smiles are badly damaged, decayed, or even made incomplete. Dr. Neale always takes the time to make these additions as lifelike and functional as possible here at Blackwell Dentistry – he even offers metal-free ceramics for a picture-perfect result that feels and looks just like the original tooth. If you’re in need of help, please don’t hesitate to contact our Blackwell, OK practice.
What is a Dental Crown?
Dental crowns are designed to cover an existing tooth’s natural shape, both protecting what remains and rebuilding it as needed. This service may be ideal for broken teeth, weakened teeth, teeth with large cavities, or teeth that are suffering from big cosmetic flaws. Crowns are also often partnered with dental implants to restore the structure and appearance of missing teeth.
What is a Dental Bridge?
Have you lost one or more natural teeth that appear next to each other? A dental bridge may be able to replace them. This sturdy restoration is situated in the gap and then anchored in place with dental crowns that cover adjacent natural teeth. Another highly recommended option is implant-retained bridges, which use placed dental implants instead of relying on natural teeth for a healthier, long-lasting result.
