DENTAL CROWNS

AND BRIDGES

Dental Crowns In Holland, MI

Crowns are used to functionally restore and esthetically enhance teeth that are damaged, or to replace missing teeth. A crown, also called a cap, is used to entirely cover a damaged tooth. A crown not only strengthens the tooth, but it can dramatically improve the tooth’s appearance, shape and alignment.

Crowns May Be Used To:
  • Replace a large filling when there is little tooth structure remaining
  • Protect a weak tooth from fracturing
  • Restore a fractured tooth
  • Attach a bridge
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Cover a discolored or poorly-shaped tooth
  • Cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment
Dental Bridges In Holland, MI

A dental bridge is a tooth replacement option that is not removable by the patient. A dental bridge consists of a prosthetic tooth that’s anchored in place by crowns on adjacent teeth or implants. A bridge replaces missing teeth both functionally and cosmetically.

It is important that a missing tooth be replaced as soon as possible for several reasons. If not treated properly and in a timely manner, the teeth surrounding the gap will begin to shift inward. Since teeth use their neighbors for support, if one is missing they begin to fall and shift into the open spaces. This may worsen your bite due to changes in pressure and can eventually result in problems with the jaw such as TMJ.
