Crowns and Bridges
Missing teeth can have a devastating impact on your self-esteem, prevent you from enjoying your favorite foods, and even lead to dental health issues in the future. While dental implants are the gold standard and most natural tooth replacement option in the world, dental bridges in El Dorado Hills, CA still represent a practical solution to smile gaps.
Dental crowns alone, on the other hand, help strengthen weak teeth, conceal flaws, and close gaps.
In either case, crowns and bridges in our El Dorado Hills, CA dental office are always designed to match your teeth—both in shape and shade!
A dental crown is a tooth-colored cap that goes on over your tooth. A bridge is an appliance that fills in for a missing tooth or teeth.
Crowns and Bridges for a Full Smile
Crowns and bridges together can fill in for missing teeth, give you a stronger and more even bite, and help prevent erosion and breakage in the future, which may lead to further tooth loss.
How Crowns and Bridges Work
A dental bridge is attached to adjacent teeth on either side of an empty space via dental crowns. An artificial tooth is suspended between the crowns to fill in for your missing tooth.
At El Dorado Family Dental, we can provide you with a fixed bridge or removable bridge. We even offer implant-supported bridges for more permanent solutions.
In any case, our crowns and bridges are natural looking, and no one will guess that you’re even wearing crowns and a bridge!
The Versatility of Dental Crowns
Apart from supporting a dental bridge, dental crowns alone can remedy a variety of different dental problems—from keeping a tooth viable to making it more attractive.
If you’ve endured trauma to the mouth or have undergone a complicated root canal, a dental crown can protect your damaged tooth and keep it strong.
A dental crown can also conceal the following aesthetic issues:
- Tooth flaw
- Tooth crack
- Tooth discoloration
- Small gaps between teeth
