Crowns and Bridges
Restore Your Smile With Beautiful Porcelain Crowns From Louisville Family Dental!
A crown is a cap, or covering that can be placed directly over your tooth to preserve it and protect it from further decay. Each crown is crafted for each patient using molds of their natural teeth to create a crown that fits perfectly and looks beautiful.
The Benefits of a Porcelain Crowns include:
- Protect Your Teeth | Crowns protect your teeth from decay and harmful bacteria. Using a crown to preserve your tooth helps you avoid future dental problems.
- Save Teeth That Would Normally Require Extraction | Before crowns were available, teeth that became severely infected had to be extracted early. Using dental crowns, we can save more teeth and help you enjoy a full, beautiful smile longer.
- Restore Your Tooth Shape | Using a dental crown, we can restore and enhance the shape of your tooth after it has become damaged. A dental crown can help you achieve a beautiful smile, even after a dental accident.
Our crowns are crafted using the highest quality porcelain materials to achieve a natural looking translucence and a tooth colored shade. You’ll be impressed with how natural your crown will feel. After a time, you may even forget that you’re wearing a crown. Our crowns are used for restorative and cosmetic dentistry purposes. We also use crowns to create dental bridges.
A dental bridge is a dental appliance that is created using a series of porcelain crowns. We use dental bridges to fill in the gaps left by missing teeth and to restore full functionality for patients who have experienced tooth loss. Dental bridges are created by attaching porcelain crowns to the teeth adjacent to the gap. These crowns serve as posts, and once they are placed, we can cement more crowns between them to “bridge” the gap. Dental bridges are an affordable way to restore the beauty and functionality of your natural smile.
