Protect Your Teeth & Smile with Dental Crowns & Bridges in Chicago, IL
If you have a severely damaged or missing tooth, Comfort Family Dental can place dental crowns & bridges to protect your teeth & give you a complete smile. Crowns & bridges are a safe & reliable way to strengthen teeth & fill in gaps where you lost a tooth. Applying crowns & bridges is one of our areas of expertise, & your restorative dentist in Chicago will be happy to help you regain your confidence with a full smile!
Crowns are porcelain coverings that are placed over damaged or fractured teeth. If you have recently had a large filling but don’t have a lot of the original tooth left, we can place a crown on top of it to protect the tooth & support it. We can also use dental crowns for cosmetic purposes if you are trying to change the size, shape, color or appearance of your tooth.
In order to install a crown, Dr. Rowe will first remove part of the top of your tooth so that there will be room for your crown. He will then take digital impressions of your tooth, which will be used to create a crown that perfectly matches your surrounding teeth & their color. While the crown is being manufactured, we can give you a temporary crown to wear over your tooth. In just two or three weeks, we will be able to place your permanent crown over your tooth.
Comfort Family Dental uses only porcelain crowns. Porcelain crowns look very similar to real teeth, & they shine & feel like natural teeth. With your new crown, your cracked or weak teeth will have more support, & you’ll be able to eat, drink & talk normally.
Get a Bridge for Missing Teeth
If you are missing one or two teeth, a bridge is a great solution. A bridge is a replacement tooth that is supported on both sides by two crowns. Dr. Rowe will first prepare the two surrounding teeth for crowns. Instead of just having one crown designed & manufactured, we will have two crowns & your replacement tooth created, so that they look realistic & naturally colored. When we apply the crowns on top of your teeth, they will secure the tooth into your gap, giving you a complete & beautiful smile.
When you have a gap, it’s very important that you fill it with a replacement tooth. When there is a gap in your teeth, your surrounding teeth will start to move, & this can result in long-term damage to your teeth & gums. A bridge will prevent your other teeth from moving & will also give you a great smile that looks completely natural. Like our crowns, our bridges are tooth-colored & made of porcelain. These bridges will look much more like your real teeth, & they will feel more natural in your mouth.
