Whether you have a single tooth that needs support or several missing teeth that need to be replaced, Dr. Betcher and our team can help. We offer dental crowns and bridges, which are made using high quality materials by a trustworthy lab here in Michigan, and both of which are used to restore and enhance teeth that are damaged or missing.
Dental crowns completely cap or encircle worn or damaged teeth and implants to restore a tooth to its normal shape, size, and function. You might be in need of a crown if you have a cavity that can’t be fixed with a filling, a tooth that is damaged, worn down, or weakened, or if you’ve had a root canal. Crowns can also be used to cover discolored or badly shaped teeth and improve your smile.
A dental bridge is created with two or more crowns to fill in gaps created by one or more missing teeth. When teeth are missing, you might experience shifting of the surrounding teeth, a change in your bite, and stress on other teeth often causing pain and damage. Bridges are used to restore your bite and keep the natural shape of your face after teeth are lost.
Worn or damaged teeth can deteriorate quickly if not treated by a professional. Our team will evaluate your smile and help you determine what option best fits your needs.
