When you need to protect or replace a tooth, our skilled dentists may recommend a dental crown or bridge. Crowns are often used to restore teeth that are fractured or damaged by decay, while bridges are used to replace missing teeth and close the gap in your smile. We invite you to call our office at 304-343-1216 to learn more about dental crowns and bridges in Charleston, West Virginia, or Hurricane, West Virginia, and to make your appointment with Drs. Monday and Graziani.
Dental crowns, or caps, cover the entire visible portion of your tooth. Crowns may be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain and gold. Your dental crown is designed to fit snugly over your tooth to protect it from further damage and restore its shape, appearance, and function.
Dental bridges are often recommended when you are missing a tooth, or several teeth in a row. Bridges are artificial teeth designed to replace your missing teeth and prevent your remaining teeth from shifting out of place. They are anchored to crowns fitted over the adjacent teeth on either side of the gap. Bridges help you maintain a proper bite and support your facial tissues to give you a healthier look.
