Dental Crowns and Bridges
Restorative Tooth Crown Dentistry in the Black Hills
What is a Dental Crown?
When your teeth become damaged, sometimes a special cap or covering is needed to protect them, and to restore their original shape. These caps are called dental crowns, and can be used to save teeth that would normally have to be extracted.
At Destination Dentistry in Custer, SD, we use dental crowns to preserve your natural smile longer. Our crowns are made from beautiful, porcelain materials that perfectly mimic your tooth’s natural shade and translucence.
What is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is a restoration that uses dental crowns to provide a tooth replacement after a tooth has been lost. For patients who are missing teeth, a dental bridge is a wonderful restorative option because it replaces the surface area and fills in the gap left by a missing tooth. With a dental bridge, even if you’ve suffered serious tooth loss, you’ll be able to enjoy a full, beautiful smile again.
A dental bridge is created by attaching dental crowns to your teeth that are adjacent to the gap, and then filling that gap by cementing a dental crown in between the other crowns. Bridges can be used to replace one or more missing teeth, and will restore your mouth’s full functionality.
