Dental Crowns & Bridges in the Greater Nashville area
Fill gaps from lost or damaged teeth and regain a healthy smile with help from a local dentist.
Dental crowns and bridges are used to fill gaps in your mouth, protect damaged teeth, and restore a healthy bite. They are custom made to match the size and color of your teeth using incredibly durable materials and are both natural-looking and functional.
Dental crowns are man-made caps that look and function like regular teeth. A crown can be used to repair a tooth that is weak, broken, or flawed. Crowns also cap dental implants. They preserve the health of your bite and restore a beautiful smile.
Dental bridges are short rows of replacement teeth that cover gaps from missing teeth and support normal chewing. Bridges can be permanent or removable and restore both the function and appearance of a full row of teeth.
Talk to your dentist about a custom solution for your chipped, broken, or lost teeth. Find a conveniently located dentist in the Greater Nashville area.
When Are Crowns & Bridges Recommended?
When teeth are missing or damaged, crowns and bridges are typically an effective fix. Both create the look of continuous, natural teeth and are designed to withstand the intense pressures of chewing food.
They help protect weakened or damaged teeth, improve an imperfect smile, and fill in gaps from missing teeth. Both play important roles in your health and well-being, including:
Preserving the health of your bite
Creating a very strong, stable surface for chewing
Restoring your ability to speak clearly
Maintaining proper spacing between your teeth
Protecting weak or damaged teeth
What Kind of Care Do Crowns & Bridges Require?
Crowns and bridges require good oral hygiene, including frequent brushing, flossing, and regular check ups.
Especially in the case of bridges, the strength and health of surrounding teeth are very important, so talk to your local dentist about ways to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
