Crowns, Bridges and Dental Implants
Crowns: Preserve Compromised Teeth
You may need a 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 crown is a full-coverage, natural looking porcelain cap that covers the entire tooth, restoring its function. The crown’s shape and shade are custom matched to your tooth, created in a laboratory from an impression we take in our office.
Bridges: Close Empty Spaces Caused by Missing Teeth
When you lose a tooth, it makes it more difficult to chew or bite your food. It can also affect your speech and even cause other teeth to drift out of place. Dental bridges are similar to crowns, 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.
Implants: Permanent Tooth Replacement from the Root Up!
The best treatment available for missing teeth is the 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!
