Customized Dental Crown and Dental Bridge
We offer multiple types of treatment for compromised teeth. Dr. Andrew Newman & Dr. Jon Weaver at Huffman Family Dentistry can create a customized treatment plan with a dental crown or dental bridge to address your needs.
Dental Crowns in Anchorage AK:
Preserve Compromised Teeth
You may need a dental crown if your tooth is:
- Badly damaged by tooth decay
- Unable to support a large filling
- Treated with a root canal
It is always our goal to help you preserve your natural tooth for as long as possible, but sometimes a filling just isn’t enough to withstand normal wear. A tooth crown is a full-coverage, natural-looking porcelain cap that covers the entire tooth, restoring its function. We send the impression we take in our office to the laboratory, where your crown’s shape and shade are custom matched to your tooth.
Dental Bridges in Anchorage AK:
Close Empty Spaces Caused by Missing Teeth
Losing a tooth can turn eating from a pleasant activity into a painful one. It can also affect the clarity of your speech, and even cause other teeth to drift out of place. A common restoration to address a missing tooth is the tooth bridge. A dental bridge is similar to a dental crown, with a false crown suspended between the two functioning crowns on either end. They are anchored onto healthy adjacent teeth, filling in the open space where your missing tooth once was.
Dental Implants: Permanent Tooth Replacement from the Root Up!
The best treatment available for missing teeth is a dental implant. A permanent solution, implants use a titanium artificial tooth root that supports a fixed prosthetic such as a crown, bridge, or even a full mouth denture. Implants look and feel like natural teeth, and can last a lifetime. Huffman Family Dentistry is proud to be your Anchorage dental implant provider, no matter how many teeth you need to replace!
