As such, we create and use dental crowns and bridges made of only the highest-quality and most durable materials on the market. We want you to feel confident that your teeth will look and feel good for years to come.
What Do Crowns Do?
Dental crowns are caps that are adhered to the top of an existing tooth to repair damage or provide an extra layer of strength. At Forrester Dental, we’re committed to providing crowns that are as similar to your natural teeth in shape and color as possible. However, crowns are not only cosmetic in nature but also help to protect and restore teeth, as well as ensure their function is not compromised.
When They’re Most Helpful
Dental crowns may improve the appearance of your smile but they also promote long-lasting oral and overall health. Being able to bite and chew comfortably is crucial to your body’s wellbeing as a whole. At Forrester Dental, we believe that a healthy mouth leads to a healthy body.
A dental crown can provide a permanent solution to a variety of dental problems, such as in:
- Addressing cracked or chipped teeth
- Replacing a cavity that is too large to be filled
- Protecting a weak tooth
- Covering a tooth for cosmetic reasons, such as providing a more uniform shape or color
- Allowing for a bridge to be attached, to fill the gaps left by missing teeth with porcelain or ceramic replacements
- Preventing future damage
What Are Bridges?
A bridge is a dental appliance which is used to treat patients who are missing one tooth or multiple teeth in a row. It is anchored on the surrounding, existing teeth and helps fill in the gap with a natural-looking restoration. It is a non-removable appliance and extremely durable.
With a bridge in place, it will:
- Prevent facial sagging
- Restore your ability to speak, chew, and eat normally
- Prevent your existing teeth from shifting to another position
- Enhance the overall appearance of your smile
