Correct and Reposition

Crowns & Bridges

If you’ve lost teeth due to accident, injury, or gum disease, we can create a permanent 'bridge' appliance to replace the missing teeth. Not only does a bridge fill the missing space, thereby preventing repositioning of remaining teeth, but it also corrects an altered bite, improves chewing ability and speech articulation, and supports facial structures to preserve your appearance.

The restoration is permanently joined onto the neighboring 'abutment' teeth on either side of the toothless area and consists of three basic units: the false tooth or teeth (called a pontic) and two abutment teeth crowns. The most appropriate style depends on the strength and health of those neighboring teeth, as well as the location of the toothless span in relation to the rest of your dentition. If healthy adjacent 'anchor' teeth aren't available, a surgically implanted metal post or dental 'implant' may be an alternate choice. And finally, for a large span of missing teeth, a removable partial denture or implant-supported prosthesis may be our recommendation.

Our office is conveniently located at 7615 Kenwood Road across from the Kenwood Towne Centre, 1/2 mile from I-71.

Provide the Strength of Natural Teeth

There are many reasons why a person loses teeth, from accidents and injuries to gum disease. Tooth loss can lead to altered speech, challenges in eating, and loss of self-confidence. Regardless of the reasons, we can create a solution in the form of a permanent bridge that replaces missing teeth. This bridge prevents the remaining teeth from shifting and corrects an altered bite. It also improves chewing ability, speech articulation, and offers support to your facial structure.The bridge is permanently joined onto the neighboring teeth or the abutment on both sides of the toothless area. It is comprised of three units: the pontic or the false tooth and the two abutment crowns.

The bridge style largely depends on the strength of the neighboring teeth and the position of the gap. If strong and healthy abutments are unavailable, there is the option of placing dental implants. If there is a large span of missing teeth then a partial denture or prosthesis may be put in place.In the event of extreme damage, a dental crown can be used. Porcelain or a porcelain “pasted on gold” crown can help your smile look as good as new. Using dental crowns to address severe dental issues is a reliable technique that can also be used to replace missing teeth and create a functional bite.

How long does it take to fit a dental crown?


Fitting a crown requires at least two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary crown of either plastic or metal. On the subsequent visit, we will remove the temporary crown and then fit and adjust the final crown. Finally, we will cement the crown into place and you have a new beautiful looking tooth.
