The dentists of Norcross Dental Associates are Norcross’s premier dentists for crowns and bridges. Norcross Dental Associates is a comprehensive, family dental practice. We offer restorative dental services including crowns and bridges as well as a full range of general, preventative and cosmetic dental care.
Crowns and bridges are dental procedures that can be used to restore the form and function of your teeth and improve your smile. A crown is used to fully cover the portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line while a bridge spans the space where teeth are missing and attaches to the adjacent teeth. Our dentists have been highly trained to place crowns and bridges with both precision and artistry.
We offer crowns and bridges in a variety of materials including gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials. Our experienced dentists can determine which material will work best for your particular case.
You may need a crown to cover a tooth and restore it to its normal shape and size. A crown can make your tooth stronger and improve its appearance.
It can cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't enough tooth left. It can be used to attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from breaking or restore one that's already broken. A crown is a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped. It's also used to cover a dental implant.
If your dentist recommends a crown, it's probably to correct one of these conditions. Your dentist's primary concern, like yours, is helping you keep your teeth healthy and your smile bright.
If you're missing one or more teeth, you may notice a difference in chewing and speaking. There are options to help restore your smile.
Bridges help maintain the shape of your face, as well as alleviating the stress in your bite by replacing missing teeth.
Sometimes called a fixed partial denture, a bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth, looks great, and literally bridges the gap where one or more teeth may have been. The restoration can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials and is bonded onto surrounding teeth for support.
Unlike a removable bridge, which you can take out and clean, a fixed bridge can only be removed by a dentist.
An implant bridge attaches artificial teeth directly to the jaw or under the gum tissue. Depending on which type of bridge your dentist recommends, its success depends on its foundation. So it's very important to keep your remaining teeth healthy and strong.
