If you are suffering from a lost or severely damaged tooth, it is important to receive a top-quality restoration that looks and functions well. At Southern Dental Associates at The Heights, we offer top-of-the-line dental crowns and bridges.
Our custom-made crowns and bridges are designed to look great and function like natural teeth. After receiving one of these restorations, you will be pleased to eat, speak and smile with confidence again.
In order to receive a crown or a bridge from Southern Dental Associates at The Heights, you will need to make at least two visits to our office. During your first visit, we will take impressions which will be used to create a custom crown or bridge that blends in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
Our crowns and bridges are built from porcelain which is known for its natural look and durability.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped restoration. When a crown is used to restore and protect an existing tooth, it is placed over the top of the visible part of the tooth, and it acts as a “cap” the existing structure. This can be done over a cracked tooth, a tooth with a deep cavity or after a root canal treatment. A Crown used to replace a missing tooth can be attached to a dental implant that has been surgically placed in the jaw. Crowns can also be used as support for a dental bridge.
Dental bridges are restorations that are used to replace multiple missing teeth in a row. A crown is placed over the teeth at either end of the gap in order to provide proper support for the natural-looking replacement teeth in the center. The crowns are referred to as “abutments,” and they provide support for the bridge. The replacement teeth “bridge” the gap where the original teeth were lost.
Because each case is unique, prices for these restorations vary. When you visit Southern Dental Associates at The Heights, we will provide you with a complete estimate of the cost. Be sure to ask about our financing options.
