Crowns and Bridges In Deerfield, IL.
You can keep your teeth healthy with regular brushing, flossing and checkups. However, over time one or more of your teeth may become damaged due to decay, cracks, wear, or trauma. Burns Family Dentistry can provide you with a dental crown or bridge to fix existing issues and prevent new ones from surfacing in the future.
Both dental crowns and dental bridges fit over your affected tooth or teeth, and serve to restore the size and shape of your tooth. Learn more about both options below.
A dental crown, or dental cap, covers your damaged tooth and is a solid replacement for a damaged natural tooth. A crown fits just like a natural tooth because it is created from impressions of your tooth. After your crown is bonded in place, your tooth will be stronger and last longer. Burns Family Dentistry offers a variety of materials for your dental crown and we will discuss the best option for your individual case.
Missing teeth not only make talking and chewing more difficult, but they can also cause other problems over time. Teeth adjacent to the space in your mouth can eventually shift into the empty space, which can affect your bite and lead to gum disease or other disorders such as TMJ (temporomandibular joint issues).
One way to take care of a gap caused by a missing tooth is with a dental bridge. There are two types of bridges: removable and permanent. Removable dental bridges, also called partial dentures, can be taken out and cleaned, whereas permanent dental bridges are bonded into place.
We will discuss all potential treatment options and will recommend the best bridge to keep your mouth at its healthiest and you at your happiest. With proper care and dental hygiene, your bridge will keep you smiling for many years to come.
