Dental Crowns Overview

A dental crown, also known as a cap, is a protective covering that is placed over a damaged or weakened tooth. Dental crowns are used to restore cracked, weakened, discolored, and damaged teeth. Unlike conventional dentures, dental crowns are cemented onto teeth, and can only be removed by your dentist. 

Benefits of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns improve the appearance of your teeth. They can instantly correct staining, misshapen teeth, crookedness, cracks, chips, fractures, and more. Crowns are also used to prevent weakened teeth from deteriorating. Dental crowns are strong and durable and they will restore full function of your damaged teeth. Crowns can improve your clarity of speech, as well as your capability to chew better. 

Dental Bridges Overview

A bridge is a fixed dental restoration that fills the gap where one or more teeth are missing. A crown is made for the teeth on either side of the lost tooth with an artificial tooth in between them. A dental bridge is shaped and colored to look like one or more natural teeth. Unlike a traditional denture, a fixed dental bridge cannot be removed by the patient because it's attached to the mouth.

Benefits of Dental Bridges

A dental bridge can fill in your smile's gaps and improve your appearance. Bridges look great and match natural teeth exceptionally well. A bridge can also prevent your natural teeth from moving out of place. When a bridge fills in your smile's gaps, the surrounding teeth are supported on all sides and have no place to shift.

Your smile is the first thing people notice when they meet you. Say goodbye to that less-than-perfect smile. Call Dr. Ron Kondoff at 757-493-8100 today to schedule an appointment in Virginia Beach, VA. Remember, a better life starts with a better-looking smile.
