Restore Your Smile With Dental Crowns and Bridges in Casper, WY
Brook Trout Dental’s expert restoration dentist and dental team are proud to offer various services, including dental crowns and bridges in Casper, Wyoming. Restoration dentistry is generally used to improve the health of your teeth, but it can also improve their appearance in notable ways.
Restore and Repair With Dental Crowns
A dental crown is a custom-made cap that replaces the natural crown of a tooth. It repairs the functionality and restores the size of a tooth that has suffered damage or decay beyond what can be fixed with a dental filling. Our expert dentists prepare the damaged tooth, take a mold, and place temporary protection for the tooth until the permanent crown is ready. Our philosophy is to always preserve as much of your existing tooth as possible, with the dental crown sealing your restored tooth. Thanks to advancements in modern dentistry, dental crowns are made from strong porcelain that is virtually invisible.
Our dentist may recommend a dental crown if you have teeth with any of the following dental issues:
- Severe discoloration
- Decay or damage
- A crack or chip
- A misaligned bite
- Weakness due to root canal therapy
Replace Missing Teeth With Dental Bridges
Sometimes called a “fixed partial denture,” a bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth and “bridges” the gap where one or more teeth used to be. Bridges are made from gold, alloys, porcelain—or a combination of materials—to match your natural teeth. A fixed bridge is attached to surrounding teeth for support. Unlike a removable bridge, a fixed bridge must be removed by a dentist.
Our experienced dentist may recommend a bridge if your tooth can’t be salvaged with a filling or crown, yet you still want a fully functioning tooth. A bridge also prevents your remaining teeth from moving out of position, which can cause other unwanted dental problems. In addition, a dental bridge will enhance your ability to speak and chew normally. If you have a missing tooth, our cosmetic dentist can replace the gap with a dental bridge.
