Dental Crowns & Bridges

What are Dental Crowns?

A dental crown is designed to cover a single tooth while restoring its natural appearance and structure. We may recommend having a new crown placed to address a wide variety of issues, including severe tooth decay, weakened tooth structure, oral damage, and purely aesthetic complaints. Overall, a crown is very versatile, allowing it to be used to fix several issues, such as:

  • Large areas of decay.
  • Significant break or fracture.
  • Dark tooth discoloration.
  • Abnormally shaped tooth.
  • Weakened tooth.
  • Along with a root canal.
  • Support a bridge.

What are the Benefits of Crowns?

Our Lawrenceburg practice can create your new, personalized dental crown in just one appointment with advanced E4D technology. This eliminates the need for a temporary crown or a second visit. The all-ceramic restorations provide a variety of benefits, including:

  • Protect a tooth from additional damage.
  • Restore the function and integrity of a tooth.
  • Looks natural using all-ceramic material.
  • Can last a decade or longer with the right aftercare.

What is a Dental Bridge?

A bridge is a prosthetic tooth (or teeth) that attaches on one or both sides to teeth covered with dental crowns. A fixed bridge is permanently joined to neighboring abutment teeth (crowned teeth) and consists of three basic units: the false tooth or teeth (called a pontic) and the two abutment crowns. The style of bridge we recommend depends upon the strength and health of the abutment teeth as well as the location of the gap in relation to the rest of your dentition. If healthy adjacent abutment teeth aren't available, a surgically implanted metal post, known as a dental implant, may offer a solid alternative.
