What is a dental crown or bridge?
Dental crowns or bridges are not dentures. A dental crown or a bridge is cemented onto existing teeth or implants.
The Davenport Dentists at Main Family Dental Care can help you make an informed decision about your dental care if you think you need a dental crown or bridge.
For more information about dental crowns or dental bridges, to book a dental appointment or receive emergency dental care for a broken tooth or problem with your dental crown or bridge please call the Davenport Dentists at the Main Family Dental Care Office at 563-323-2571
How A Dental Crown Is Used
A crown can be used to cover or cap a damaged tooth. This can improve the appearance, shape or alignment of your teeth. The crown can also strengthen a damaged tooth. And the crown can be matched to the color of your existing teeth.
Reasons For A Dental Crown
A crown might be recommended to replace a filling on a tooth when there is very little tooth remaining, protect a weak tooth, restore a broken or fractured tooth, attach a bridge or cover a tooth that is poorly shaped.
Are You Missing Any Teeth?
If you are missing one or more teeth a bridge might be recommended. Missing teeth will eventually cause other teeth in the mouth to shift or rotate into the empty spaces. Missing teeth may cause other problems such as gum disease.
