There are many ways to repair damaged teeth, but dental crowns and bridges in San Pedro are among our favorite dental restorations. That’s because they are so versatile!
We can use a dental crown to:
- Mend a cracked or broken tooth
- Fix large cavities
- Conceal cosmetic imperfections like stains
- Replace a missing tooth as part of a dental bridge or when attached to a dental implant
- Seal a tooth following a root canal procedure
- Strengthen teeth and protect them from further damage
To see if a crown or a bridge is the right fix for your smile, call 310-982-6333.
Metal-Free Dental Restorations Look Natural in Your Smile
Depending on how large a cavity is, we’ll use a filling, a dental crown, or a partial crown (called an inlay or an onlay) to repair it. Because we want your restoration to look natural in your smile and we prefer to avoid concerns about the mercury used in metal restorations, all of our options are metal-free. In the case of crowns, we use strong and beautiful zirconia or e.max (lithium disilicate). We partner with the best dental labs to ensure your crowns will look great and last for many years.
For Fixing a Break to Replacing a Tooth, a Dental Crown Is a Great Option
Since a dental crown encases your entire tooth, it can repair even severe dental damage. Keeping a tooth intact is preferable to removing it, as bone loss and other problems can occur. If you lose a tooth, you can replace it with a crown attached to a dental implant. Using an implant keeps your jaw strong and healthy.
You can replace a single tooth with one crown attached to one implant. If you’ve lost multiple teeth, we can attach a bridge to crowns on your teeth. If you’d prefer, you can replace teeth with a dental bridge attached to two or more implants instead. Using implants avoids the need to alter healthy teeth.
If you’ve suffered dental damage, we can probably repair it with dental crowns and bridges in San Pedro. Call Shook Dental Care at 310-982-6333.
