Sometimes decaying teeth are easily remedied. In cases of extensive decay, however, a different solution is required. You may need dental crowns or dental bridges—durable artificial teeth—to restore the strength and function of your teeth. Whether you grind your teeth frequently, are undergoing root canal treatment or dental implant placement, or have suffered oral trauma, these dental appliances can get your smile back to full health and beauty. With our state-of-the-art dental technology and exceptionally experienced doctors, Rowan Family Dentistry is the practice of choice for dental bridges and dental crowns in New Albany, MS. Both look and function just like real teeth. No one will know the difference—including you!
Also known as caps, dental crowns are individual artificial teeth. To be more specific, they’re the top part of the tooth that’s showing above the gumline. Crowns are made of sturdy, glossy materials that match the appearance and function of real tooth enamel. If you lose a significant portion of a tooth to decay or oral trauma, we will restore its strength and beauty with a crown. Crowns are made to precisely cover and fit over the top of an existing tooth. They can also be placed onto a dental implant. We customize dental crowns in New Albany, MS to fit you perfectly and blend seamlessly with the shape and color of the adjacent healthy teeth.
Made up of two or more crowns connected in a row, dental bridges enable us to fill in gaps left by missing teeth. We anchor the crowns at each end of a bridge to natural teeth or dental implants, creating a “bridge” over the area of tooth loss. As with single crowns, we’ll have your bridges customized to match your natural tooth color and shape for a realistic, healthy look.
