Tooth Crowns & Dental Bridges in Arlington, VA
Do you have stained, chipped, or decayed teeth that are affecting your smile? Are missing teeth making daily life difficult? A tooth crown or dental bridge can repair run-down teeth or replace missing teeth.
Beautiful porcelain dental crowns and dental bridges are an easy way to give your smile a makeover. These dental restorations can also fortify your teeth to give them added strength and durability.
Porcelain Tooth Crowns
Dental crowns cover the entire portion of the tooth above the gum line. Each tooth crown will restore the function and appearance of a tooth that has:
- Small cracks or chips.
- Severe discoloration or dullness.
- Deep decay.
Porcelain tooth crowns are used to attach a dental bridge, cover root canal work, or top off dental implants. A dental crown protects a damaged tooth crown from further cracking or decay. If you are unsatisfied with the appearance of dull or darkened teeth, dental crowns will give them brightness and proper shape.
Dental Bridges Alexandria, VA
If you are missing a tooth or are missing several permanent teeth in a row, Dr. Geren and his team can provide you with a dental bridge to make things right. A dental bridge is simply a natural-looking synthetic tooth that is supported on either side by a porcelain tooth crown. A tooth bridge can also be supported by dental implants when necessary. A dental bridge can close the gap left by a missing tooth or by several missing teeth and restore your smile’s appearance as well as the functionality of your bite. Dental bridges and the dental crowns that support them are custom-made to fit your smile. Once the procedure is complete, you will be able to bite and chew normally and nobody will be able to notice a difference between the bridge and your natural teeth. Some of the many benefits of a dental bridge are:
- Restoring functionality of your bite
- Improving the appearance of your smile
- Preventing further damage caused by missing teeth
