Solve Tooth Loss With Dental Crowns And Bridges
Whether age, decay or a dental injury has resulted in tooth loss, a dental crown and bridge can be used to replace one or more missing teeth for a smile that looks and feels healthy and confident. Our custom designed dental crowns and bridges fit comfortably into the mouth with strong, tooth-colored dental crowns. Because this restorative dental treatment option offers natural looking and long-lasting results it is becoming a popular option for patients seeking to restore their smiles after losing one or more teeth.
Missing teeth can affect your health and make it difficult to eat, speak or even clean your teeth. Dental bridges effectively fill spaces between teeth after tooth loss, preventing remaining teeth from shifting out of place or causing a misaligned bite to form. Because dental bridges are versatile, they can be personalized around your needs.
Made of strong porcelain or ceramic material, dental crowns or “caps” fit over the surface of the tooth to support a strong and natural looking tooth structure. When used along with a dental bridge, dental implant or denture, crowns look and function much the same as a natural adult tooth for a smile that looks and feels confident.
Restorative dental services have numerous cosmetic, restorative and health benefits. It can be difficult to live life comfortably after tooth loss. With advancements in dental crowns and bridges, dental implants and dentures taking the first steps towards a better quality of life is as simple as making a call to schedule your consultation.

Crowns and bridges typically require more than one dental visit but can last many years. At your appointment Dr. Latourelle will form a comprehensive exam of your dental condition and discuss with you your treatment options. Your bridge is formed from an impression of your teeth to provide the best support for your unique dental situation. Once the bridge is made it can be fitted and adjusted before placement.
