Preserve, protect, or replace teeth
Dental crowns and dental bridges are custom restorations we use to build up tooth structure or replace missing teeth. These restorations effectively restore teeth that have suffered damage, decay, or have fallen out. The primary purpose of dental crowns and dental bridges is to bring back correct bite function and preserve and protect existing teeth, while also improving the look of the teeth and smile as a whole. As a Dawson Academy trained dentist, Dr. Angie Hedlund restores both the function and beauty of smiles with dental crowns and bridges, ensuring the foundation of your smile—its health and how your teeth fit together—is correct before beginning cosmetic restorations. We only partner with professional ceramists accredited by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry to maintain our high standard of care and provide you with the best possible outcomes.
Dental crowns protect teeth
Dental crowns surround and protect a worn, chipped, or cracked tooth, restore teeth after a root canal, and complete a dental implant. Custom made to cover over the entire tooth like a glove, dental crowns restore both the natural beauty and the long-term durability of damaged teeth. Once fitted to the tooth, dental crowns improve its strength so that it can withhold the normal pressure and force of biting and chewing.
Dental Bridges Replace Teeth
Dental bridges are a series of dental crowns bonded together to replace a lost tooth. Dental bridges are supported by the two teeth on either side of the missing tooth. Along with replacing the lost tooth, dental bridges keep existing teeth from shifting out of place and disrupting tooth alignment and bite. Dental bridges are an effective solution that does not involve wearing partial dentures or having surgery, and can last for many years with the proper care
Benefiting from dental crowns and bridges
Dental crowns and bridges both need the existing teeth to be slightly reduced in size in order for the restoration to fit properly without affecting the bite. We meticulously make these adjustments to your teeth to maximize the benefits of dental crowns and bridges once they are restored. By evaluating the functional as well as aesthetic aspects of dental crowns and bridges, Dr. Hedlund consistently restores the natural beauty and health of teeth.
