Dental Crowns & Bridges

Thomas Family Dentistry, PC offers dentistry services to the Strasburg, VA area. Among our procedures are dental crowns and bridges for missing teeth. If you have missing or decaying teeth, consider a cosmetic dental clinic like ours for help. Crowns and bridges are an inexpensive semi-permanent solution for tooth decay or extracted teeth.

Dental crowns and bridges are similar in purpose, but slightly different in design. Both sit atop your original teeth and act as a cap that is as functional and natural looking as your original teeth. This dentistry procedure is quick and affordable as well. 

Dental Crown Procedure

A dental crown, also called a cap, covers the entire tooth's surface. This covering is durable and restores the natural shape and size of your damaged tooth. Crowns for teeth not only look great, they protect and strengthen your teeth's structure in a way that fillings and other restorations can't.

While there are several kinds of crowns, the type chosen by most dentists are made of a porcelain base to maintain a natural tooth color. These are especially durable and only need attention every few years and eventually replaced. 

Why get dental crowns?

  • Broken or fractured teeth 
  • Cosmetic enhancement 
  • Decayed teeth
  • Fractured fillings
  • Large fillings 
  • A tooth has a root canal

Fixed Dental Bridges

Like crowns, dental bridges replace missing teeth. Traditional bridges are most commonly used by dentists and are often made of porcelain fused to metal. These bridges are made of two crowns mounted over two abutment teeth 

A traditional bridge covers two anchoring abutment teeth and fills the gap created by one or more missing teeth. Highly durable and designed to last for years, dental bridges will be keep your teeth strong especially with regular checkups. 

Why get a traditional bridge? 

  • Missing teeth 
  • Restore facial shape 
  • Prevent dental drift
  • Restore chewing and speaking
  • Replace removable denture with permanent fixture
