If you have damaged teeth or a large space due to tooth loss between two healthy teeth, Dr. Andrew Kim may recommend dental crowns or a dental bridge to restore your smile. We perform a number of cosmetic dentistry and restoration procedures at AAA Dental Care and will work to rebuild or enhance your smile. Our tooth restorations look and feel very natural. They are designed to last for many years, so you can maintain results as long as you take good care of your oral health.
Dental crowns are designed to “cap” teeth that have suffered significant damage in some way. We may also place a dental crown after a root canal since the crown helps preserve the tooth structure and strengthen the tooth. Dental crowns are custom tooth restorations that look like your natural teeth, so nobody will know that you have had any cosmetic or restorative dental treatment done. Dr. Kim uses the latest technologies and techniques to ensure optimal placement of dental crowns. Benefits of crowns include:
A dental bridge may be a viable alternative to dental implants in patients with missing teeth. The bridge is designed to fill the gap between two healthy teeth and is comprised of a series of dental crowns that have been splinted, or fused, together. This helps restore an even bite and prevents surrounding teeth from shifting and drifting into the space created by tooth loss. For many patients, a dental bridge restores functionality of the mouth and also improves the smile. The bridge is custom made to fit your mouth perfectly and will be permanently cemented in place.
