Dental crowns and bridges are frequently recommended to restore teeth that are damaged or lost. Our dentists provide crowns and bridges to restore the shape, appearance and function of your teeth. When you visit Modern Dental, we carefully examine your mouth to determine if a dental crown or bridge is the best option for you.
Dr. Morley and Dr. Hamel provide dental crowns to restore teeth that are decayed or fractured. Crowns (sometimes called caps) are custom-designed to fit over your tooth. This gives your tooth a natural-looking appearance and proper function once again. Crowns are often used as part of other treatments, such as root canal therapy, dental implant restorations, or as part of a dental bridge.
A dental bridge is a prosthetic tooth and may be used to replace either a single tooth or several teeth in a row. Your replacement tooth will be anchored to crowns placed on the teeth to either side of the gap in your smile. Bridges restore your smile and prevent your remaining teeth from shifting out of place.
If you have questions about dental crowns or bridges, we welcome you to call us today at (217) 698-3400 to schedule your personalized consultation at our caring dental office in Springfield, Illinois.
