WHAT IS A DENTAL CROWN?

Dental treatmentA dental crown is a dental device that can be used in the treatment of a number of different dental issues. A dental crown surrounds and protects your tooth from decay and damage. If you have a compromised tooth, a crown can be a simple and effective solution.

Some of the dental issues treated by dental crowns are:

  • Broken, chipped, or cracked teeth | A dental crown can be used to repair broken, chipped, or cracked teeth safely and effectively, restoring both the functionality of the tooth and its appearance.
  • Root canal therapy | After a tooth has had root canal therapy, it’s often necessary to add a dental crown to protect the tooth. This can help ensure that your natural tooth lasts for many more years.
  • Dental bridges | Most dental bridges require dental crowns on either side to provide the support necessary to hold the bridge.
  • Dental implants | Combining a dental crown with a dental implant, we can effectively replace missing teeth and create a “new” tooth.

Our dental crowns are made of high-quality porcelain materials that are designed to work well and look great!

WHAT IS A DENTAL BRIDGE?

dental bridgeA dental bridge is a dental device that can bridge the gap caused by one or more missing teeth. At Alsip Dental Center, we custom-craft bridges for each patient who requires them.

Our dental bridges are designed to look like your natural teeth and are anchored on either side by a dental crown, providing the strength necessary to make this treatment effective and long-lasting. Dental bridges combined with dental crowns are a truly marvelous combination that can improve the appearance and function of your teeth.

We are thrilled to offer both dental bridges and dental crowns as treatment options. If you have questions about these treatments, contact our team today!

Remember – your smile says “hello“ before you do!
