Dr. Wendy Willoughby and Dr. Teresa Bare may recommend dental crowns or bridges to restore your beautiful smile. These versatile restorations may be used for anything from repairing damaged teeth to replacing missing teeth, and our experienced dentists will work closely with you to determine which type of treatment is right for your needs.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges can help you regain a complete smile! Bridges are a type of prosthetic teeth, recommended when you are missing one tooth or several teeth in a row. They work to close the gap caused by missing teeth, restoring your smile as well as your ability to eat and speak normally. Bridges also prevent your remaining natural teeth from shifting, maintaining oral harmony. Traditionally, dental bridges are supported by crowns on the teeth to either side of the bridge, however, they may also be anchored by dental implants.

Dental Crowns

Our dentists may recommend a dental crown if your tooth has sustained damage, such as that caused by broken teeth, injury, tooth decay or disease. Crowns are designed to restore the strength, functionality and appearance of your teeth so that you can once again enjoy a healthy smile. Crowns are custom-made to fit your teeth and smile perfectly to ensure a beautiful and natural-looking final result. A crown may also be placed atop a dental implant to cap the implant post if you are replacing a missing tooth.

Same-Day Dental Crowns

In addition to traditional dental crowns, we are pleased to offer CEREC same-day dental crowns to restore your smile. Using our advanced CEREC technology, our dentists can design, create and place your dental crowns in a single appointment, saving you time as well as giving you back a beautiful smile.
