Fixing Trenton, MI Teeth with Crowns & Bridges
The dental specialist at Penn & Searls, DDS heal the mouths of patients throughout Trenton, MI with crowns and bridges custom-made for an individual oral health resolution. When a tooth suffers from severe decay or a substantial break, teeth fillings and other treatments might not be enough to rectify the issue. That’s why we provide crowns to cover damaged or misshapen teeth, as well as bridges to fill in the gaps of missing teeth. Our caring and knowledgeable staff has helped countless patients restore their smiles to perfection. We’ll evaluate your current dental condition to determine the best treatment, so you can eat, speak, and flash those pearly whites with confidence and comfort. Crowns and bridges are standard methods of dealing with irregular, damaged, or missing teeth. We exhibit a keen attention to detail to ensure you obtain a perfect fit and a natural appearance.
A dental crown is a restorative tooth prosthetic that fully encases the tooth that has been severely damaged or decayed to the point that a filling is insufficient. We also use crowns to attach bridges to the adjacent teeth securely, and after a root canal, your treated tooth is covered by a custom-made crown. If you have a tooth that’s disfigured or discolored, installing a crown can improve its color and shape for a more pleasing aesthetic. We make all crowns modeled after your natural teeth to blend in perfectly, and you always receive a precise fit for a natural feel, optimal comfort, and effective bite. Dental crowns look and perform like your regular teeth and caring for them includes a consistent dental hygiene regimen. You should also attend regular checkups with your dentist and avoid biting or chewing on hard objects or food like ice, which could damage them.
A dental bridge replaces one or more lost teeth by using an artificial tooth to occupy the space. For a successful installation, we attach abutments in the form of crowns to the adjacent teeth with a pontic or replacement tooth secured to the abutments. Dental bridges blend in with your natural teeth and function like a regular tooth. A bridge will also prevent the surrounding teeth from shifting out of position due to a vacant spot. Caring for your bridge goes in tandem with your regular teeth, including sticking to a dental hygiene regimen, not chewing or biting on any hard food or objects to avoid damage, and visiting the dentist for regular checkups.
