CROWNS AND BRIDGES

If you are not happy with your smile due to imperfections such as missing, damaged or discoloredteeth, allow Prescott Family Dentistry to help you. We offer many dental solutions and treatments to fix and correct teeth imperfections. One of the solutions we offer for missing or damaged teeth are crowns and bridges.

A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a damaged tooth. It is used to provide strength and protection to your tooth structure. Apart from improving the appearance of a tooth, a crown also adds strength to the tooth, and enhances its appearance, shape and alignment. Crowns are manufactured using a variety of materials such as porcelain, ceramic,acrylic, and gold and metal alloys.

You may need a crown to:

  • cover stained, discolored or worn teeth
  • replace a filling
  • prevent further damage to the tooth such as cracking or fracturing
  • support a bridge that replaces a missing tooth
  • protect a tooth that has undergone a root canal treatment

Bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth. They fill the area with the missing teeth. Bridges cover the natural teeth or implants surrounding the empty space. The supporting teeth are also known as abutments. The crowns which cover the abutments are connected to apontic (or replacement tooth).

What benefits can you get from bridges?

  • Bridges can restore your smile
  • Bridges can restore the normal functions of teeth such as proper chewing and biting
  • Bridges can keep the shape of your face maintained
  • Bridges allow equal distribution of forces in your bite properly
  • Bridges prevent your teeth from shifting or moving out of position

The success of crowns and bridges depend on how well you take good care of your oral health by proper brushing and flossing as well as the regular visits to your dentist.

At Prescott Family Dentistry, our goal is to help you attain a healthy and brilliant smile that you deserve.

Our Happy Customers

"I have nothing but fantastic things to say about this practice. The entire office is just phenomenal - everyone is warm, welcoming, personable, and very customer service oriented. They all remember you when you come in, they engage in friendly conversation and above all, strive to make you feel comfortable. Dr. Prescott is simply wonderful and there is nothing bad that I can say about my experiences with him. My husband and children are also patients, and although we relocated from Fort Mill,SC to Waxhaw, NC it is totally worth the drive to continue under Dr. Prescott's care. I've even referred several of my new neighbors to the practice... they all thought I was nuts to be referring them so far down the road. After their visits, they all raved about Dr. Prescott and his staff and thanked me for referring them. BTW - my kids are 14, 15 and almost 4. Dr. Prescott & team finds a way to connect with each of them despite the age differences. My youngest had his first cleaning here and can't wait to go back to the "mouth doctor"!!"
