Crowns & Bridges

If you want to improve the look and function of your smile, a crown or a bridge might be just the answer.

Crowns, which are one of the most common types of restorative dentistry, are typically used on teeth that have had large fillings that weakened over time or became susceptible to further decay. When there's too little tooth structure left to place a filling, inlay, or onlay, a crown becomes the best solution.

A bridge, simply put, is a series of three crowns, all connected. Bridges, which are sometimes referred to as "fixed partial dentures" are used to replace a single missing tooth.

Crowns and bridges can be fabricated in:

  • all porcelain
  • all metal (typically gold)
  • a combination of porcelain (for aesthetics) and metal (for strength)

For more information about crowns and bridges or to schedule an appointment, please call (303) 316-4034, or e-mail barb@happysmileeat.com.
