Crowns & Bridges in Doylestown, PA
Damaged or missing teeth are not just an esthetic problem. When teeth are missing, you may experience significant discomfort when chewing and also have difficulty speaking clearly.
At Doylestown Dental Group, we are committed to helping you achieve a perfectly healthy and beautiful smile. Our doctors are highly trained to create durable, natural-looking porcelain crowns and bridges that restore the health of your teeth and enhance your appearance. Using a combination of the newest technological advances in ceramics and highly-skilled laboratories, we can achieve a long-lasting, beautiful result.
Teeth that have been damaged due to injury or decay need to be strengthened to restore proper function. A crown is a custom-crafted restoration made to look like a natural tooth. It encases a damaged tooth or dental implant, providing support and restoring the tooth to full function. Crowns are also commonly used as the final restoration after you’ve had a dental implant placed.
Depending on your needs, we can create dental crowns using any one of a number of different materials – porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, and gold. We will choose the type of crown that is most appropriate for your needs.
A dental bridge is a restoration used to fill the empty space remaining after a tooth is lost. Bridges consist of an artificial tooth (pontic) that is secured to adjacent teeth with dental crowns.
Missing teeth need to be replaced because the loss of even one tooth can lead to a number of oral health problems. When a tooth is missing, surrounding teeth can drift out of place, leading to misaligned teeth and problems with your dental bite.
A well-made dental bridge is securely attached to existing teeth, making it very stable. Dental bridges offer many solutions:
- Filling the space left by a missing tooth
- Preventing shifting of surrounding teeth
- Providing a longer-term alternative to a removable partial denture
