When your teeth have been weakened by decay or damage simple fillings aren’t always enough to fix or save them. If you’re prone to grinding your teeth, have recently undergone a root canal or just aren’t happy with the condition of your teeth, we can help you. With dental bridges and dental crowns in Maplewood, MN and St. Croix Falls and Woodville, WI, the team here at Veneman Dental Care can reacquaint you with a full, healthy, spotless smile. As a general dental practice, we’re skilled in cosmetic dentistry—providing everything from a few crowns to improve your smile to a full smile makeover to completely transform it, all with the same exceptional results. We also provide crowns and bridges as restorations for dental implants, whether you need single dental implants or multiple dental implants.
Dental crowns, sometimes called caps, are artificial teeth that are made to fit over existing teeth. Crowns are often used to support teeth that have been filed down but still have their natural roots but are also used to complete a dental implant. Candidates for crowns usually have one or the other, or even both. Crowns are typically produced from porcelain, which has the distinctive shine and durability of natural, healthy teeth. With dental crowns, you’ll regain both the appearance and performance of real teeth.
Dental bridges are made of two or more dental crowns, often in rows, or with space in between them, but part of the same appliance. The crowns at each end of a bridge are usually secured to the jaw with living tooth roots (a natural tooth that has been filed down) or dental implants. The crowns in between are supported by those teeth/implants, creating a bridge that spans the space left by missing teeth. Dental bridges will give patients missing multiple teeth a full smile, just like dental crowns!
I love interacting with people and not worrying about my smile
