You don’t have to live with damaged or missing teeth. Cantrell Family Dentistry in Wylie, Texas offers various ways to repair broken smiles, including crown and bridgework. We use natural-looking materials to craft attractive crowns and bridges, offering patients reliable rehabilitation for a variety of smile problems.
Dental crowns have long been used to restore teeth that are chipped, cracked, fractured, or decayed. A dental crown completely encases your natural tooth, improving not only its strength and function but also its appearance.
Using ceramic materials, we can have porcelain crowns crafted for you at top quality dental labs. Just because you need tooth repair shouldn’t mean that you need to sacrifice your smile’s attractiveness; instead, you can have both strength and beauty with porcelain crowns from Cantrell Family Dentistry. In some cases, metal may still be necessary. Dr. Jonathan will discuss the treatment options that will give you the best results.
A fixed bridge offers patients with a few missing teeth an option for non-removable tooth replacement. A bridge is made up of a single tooth or row of replacement teeth with crowns on either end. These crowns are placed on the remaining natural teeth to hold the bridge in place.
Even if you’re only missing a single tooth, you’ll want to visit Cantrell Family Dentistry to discuss replacement. When you lose a tooth, it destabilizes your bite, causing the mouth to begin to shift in an effort to fill in the empty space. One missing tooth increases the risk of more missing teeth, and the space left behind by the loss of a tooth can increase your risk of gum disease and decay affecting surrounding teeth. With a fixed bridge, Dr. Cantrell can counteract this process and stabilize your smile for improved long-term function and health.
Both crowns and bridges are custom made for each individual patient. We know that fit and appearance are crucial to comfort and confidence, which is why we will spend a great deal of time making sure we gather all the information we need to have well-fitting and beautiful crowns and bridges crafted for the patients at our Wylie, Texas dental office.
