North Canton, OH Dental Bridge & Crowns Restoration
Restoring decayed or broken teeth to their full function and natural aesthetic requires selecting the best possible treatment method and materials. At the North Canton cosmetic and restorative dental office of Dr. Julie Thomas, we utilize beautiful crown and bridge restorations to help patients enjoy renewed oral health and aesthetics.
When Do I Need a Crown or Bridge Restoration?
In general, crowns and bridges are used to repair your smile and allow patients to benefit from improved ability to bite and chew. Both can be used to strengthen and revitalize your oral health and leave patients with healthy and completed smiles. Dr. Julie carefully recommends cosmetic and restorative treatment with crowns and bridges to provide care for:
Missing Teeth - Fixed dental bridges are intended to replace one missing tooth, or collections of missing teeth. Bridges are dental prosthetics that include a dental crown at each end, with replacements for missing teeth attached between. Our bridges can be made in varying lengths to accommodate groups of lost teeth and are fabricated with materials that look and function like your natural teeth.
Cracked or Broken Teeth – Teeth that can still be saved and do not need to be extracted and replaced with bridges can be repaired with dental crowns. A crown is a cap that is placed over the entire top portion of your tooth, above the gum line, to conceal flaws or replace damaged enamel. Depending on your bite balance and oral health habits, Dr. Julie can create your crowns from a number of materials to ensure that your smile is fully functioning and looks beautiful.
Full Cosmetic Makeovers – While crowns and bridges are often used for restorative and health related purposes, they also have an important role in comprehensive smile makeovers. Crowns can be used to change the shape and shade of teeth that are discolored or mismatched, while bridges close unattractive spaces in your smile caused by accidents or extractions.
Dental Implant Crowns and Bridges
Our North Canton crowns and bridge prosthetics, while traditionally cemented in-place over existing teeth, can also be permanently anchored with dental implant posts for patients with any number of missing teeth. Adding our customized dental crowns and bridges to dental implants allows our patients to benefit from some of the longest lasting and most natural looking teeth replacements available.
