Dental Crowns & Bridges

dental crowns and bridges in Littleton, COIf you have broken or missing teeth that need repaired, dental crowns and bridges are two of the procedures that we offer to give you a functional, pain-free smile.

Dental Crowns

If you have a cracked or chipped tooth, we can help restore its beauty again by placing a tooth crown.

A dental crown—also known as a tooth cap—is a cover for your tooth that restores the shape and functionality and adds protection to your damaged tooth or teeth. Our crowns are custom-made for you in our laboratory using strong and beautiful porcelain.

Many people find that crowns are a convenient and natural-looking solution for fixing a part of your smile that you are reluctant to show others.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns come with a variety of features that your mouth will love. Tooth crowns can:

  • Strengthen your tooth and give it the support that it needs.
  • Repair broken, chipped, or cracked teeth.
  • Cover misshapen teeth for a cosmetic upgrade.
  • Add protection to weakened teeth.
  • Seal a tooth from further interior damage after completing fillings or root canals.

When you need a single tooth repaired, a beautiful porcelain dental crown or tooth cap will have your teeth looking great in no time.

When Is a Tooth Crown Needed?

A tooth crown is necessary in a variety of situations.

  • Damaged teeth. A broken, chipped, or cracked tooth is vulnerable to interior damage. A crown is necessary to protect your tooth from infection.
  • Weak teeth. If you have recently had a filling or root canal, or your teeth have become weakened through decay or age, a tooth cap can add a layer of protection.
  • Missing teeth. A full dental crown can also be used with a dental implant or a dental bridge to replace an entirely missing tooth for a filled-out smile again.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge or a fixed bridge is a great way to restore a missing tooth. They work by securing a new dental crown in the gap between your teeth by attaching them to crowns placed on your natural teeth on either side of the gap. This will help support and strengthen them when chewing.

Our dental bridges use porcelain crowns to restore your smile with a realistic and beautiful new tooth.

Benefits of Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are a popular option for anyone that is missing teeth. Recipients of dental bridges and fixed bridges can expect the following benefits and more:

  • Filled out smile.
  • Improved speaking.
  • Restored chewing capabilities.
  • Higher self-esteem.

Dental bridges will also protect your remaining teeth from shifting out of place into the gap the missing tooth left. The porcelain crowns we use look like your natural teeth and will fill you with confidence the next time that you smile.

When Is a Tooth Bridge Needed?

If you are missing teeth and have issues chewing then a dental bridge can help strengthen the overall position of your oral health.

With a dental bridge or a fixed bridge you can fill gaps of 1–2 missing teeth and provide support to your surrounding teeth.

Dental Bridge vs. Implants?

When choosing between a tooth bridge or dental implants, they are both good options for restoring teeth, but there are many other things to consider.

Dental Bridges:

  • Are more cost-friendly.
  • Can be placed faster.
  • Require a non-invasive approach.
  • Use porcelain crowns for a natural-looking finish.
  • Keep your remaining teeth from shifting out of place.

Dental Implants

  • Are longer lasting.
  • Are much sturdier.
  • Support and strengthen your jawbone.
  • Use porcelain crowns for a natural-looking finish.
  • Keep your remaining teeth from shifting out of place.

Overall, a traditional tooth bridge will be less expensive in the short term and can be placed quickly and almost painlessly, but they do have the risk of falling out of place and may need to be replaced.

Dental implants, or fixed bridges that are supported with implants, are more expensive initially and require a longer installation process, but they will remain sturdy and secure for years longer than dental bridges.
