We also believe in providing our patients with options and often dental crowns and bridges are solutions to many cosmetic and structural dental issues.

For those who have issues with the structure of their tooth, a dental crown can be of benefit. A crown is a prosthetic that is placed over the existing tooth to improve its appearance and increase its durability and strength. Dr. Warr only uses materials that are natural-looking and customizes each crown to mimic the shape and size of your existing teeth. If you have decay or damage in a tooth that requires more support than a traditional filling, a crown may be the solution for you.

The benefits of a dental crown include:

  • Restoring the appearance of your tooth
  • Protection of a weak tooth to prevent fracture
  • Restoring an already fractured tooth
  • Covering a dental implant
  • Cover a discolored tooth
  • Cover a tooth that is misshaped
  • Help hold a dental bridge in place

A dental bridge is one option to replace a missing tooth. A missing tooth can cause you more problems beyond looking unpleasant. When there is a significant gap between your teeth it can affect the structure and function of your remaining teeth and jaw. While the preferred method to replace a missing tooth is by placing a permanent dental implant, not everyone is a candidate for implants, making a bridge a safe and effective solution.

A missing tooth can cause your surrounding teeth to shift and move out of position. When that happens, it can lead to even more issues such as a change in your bite, the loss and/or decay of other teeth, and even increase the risk for gum disease. A dental bridge is made of two or more crowns which are placed on each side of the gap and support a replacement tooth in place of the missing tooth. A dental bridge is an effective way to maintain the structure and health of your mouth. The benefits of a dental bridge include:

  • Restores the appearance of your smile
  • Improves your ability to chew and speak
  • Helps to maintain the shape of your face by preventing tooth shifting and jaw decay
  • Helps to equally distribute the forces in your bite
  • Lowers your risk of gum disease

If you have any of the dental issues mentioned above, Dr. Warr can help you determine the best solution for your oral health needs. Our goal is to always provide each patient with compassionate care and provide beautiful, healthy smiles.
