Crowns & Bridges
Are you living with missing teeth or broken teeth that no longer function well? Would you like to be able to chew without pain and smile with confidence again?
If your tooth is too compromised to be repaired with a filling, our staff would probably recommend a dental crown to strengthen and protect it from further damage. Missing teeth should be replaced as soon as possible, and dental bridges are one option we offer.
We Offer Personalized Care
At Briarwood Dental, we recognize that every patient has unique needs that require personalized solutions. You can trust Dr. Kevin Clemmons, Dr. Derek Hayes, and Dr. Sasha Hays to evaluate your needs, listen to your concerns, and answer your questions.
The first step is to call our office to arrange a dental appointment. There’s often more than one way to solve a problem in dentistry, so we’ll present all your options and help you make informed decisions about your treatment.
Versatile Dental Crowns
A dental crown is a porcelain jacket that surrounds a tooth to provide support and protection. With a new dental crown in place, your tooth will once again have the strength it needs to absorb chewing forces so you can eat comfortably again. We offer only porcelain dental crowns, so you can count on a beautifully natural-looking appearance that blends perfectly with your smile.
Dental crowns are quite versatile, so there are several situations where they would be a good solution:
- A tooth has broken in such a way that placing a tooth filling won’t be enough to protect it
- You had a root canal and need a crown to protect and strengthen the tooth.
- A teeth grinding habit has worn or fractured a tooth
- You have a dental implant and need a restoration to complete your smile.
Since dental crowns today look so similar to tooth enamel, we can also use them in certain cases to hide cosmetic flaws like severe dental discoloration.
Fixed Bridges Restore Smiles
Losing a tooth means you also lose the ability to eat, speak, and smile confidently. Dental bridges at our Bowling Green, KY dental office fill the gap in your smile and restore function so you can enjoy life again.
It’s also a good idea to replace missing teeth for oral health reasons. Our teeth are always moving to some extent, so filling the open space with a prosthetic like a dental bridge prevents adjacent teeth from tilting and shifting out of position.
Our dentists attach fixed bridges to adjacent teeth with dental crowns, which makes them very stable. Since we also place dental implants at Briarwood Dental, we’ll be happy to explain how we can use them to stabilize your bridge and hold it securely in place.
