Dental Crowns & Bridges in Taylorsville, UT
Naisbitt Family Dentistry
Porcelain crowns and fixed bridges are used to treat problems of decay, fractured teeth, malocclusion, and to protect teeth which have had root canal treatment, or large fillings. They can also be used to change tooth color and shape.
Dental crowns are restorations that cover up or cap natural teeth, restoring them to their natural size. A well-made porcelain crown should blend in with the natural teeth and be unnoticeable. The porcelain crown not only improves function and appearance, but can also protect a tooth that might otherwise be lost.
The benefit of wearing a crown is that it surrounds and protects the tooth. This means that regardless of how damaged the tooth was, you can eat your favorite foods without fear of discomfort. A crown can restore the functionality of your mouth by making it easy to eat, drink and speak like normal.
A fixed bridge is designed to replace teeth that have been lost. Aside from the obvious effects of missing teeth on personal appearance and chewing, there are other concerns. Without replacing missing teeth, the normal pressure of chewing can stress the remaining teeth and cause them to shift out of alignment resulting in additional problems chewing.
