Restore Damaged or Missing Teeth
Crowns & Bridges in Bardstown
Crowns and bridges are a versatile treatment than can restore teeth whether they are cracked, damaged, or missing altogether. Crowns cover your natural teeth to protect them from further damage, and bridges are a natural-looking replacement option for teeth that have been extracted or fallen out. If you have questions about whether these options will work for you, schedule a consultation today or call us to speak with our knowledgeable team.
Crowns, also known as “caps”, are custom-made to fit perfectly over your natural tooth and mimic its shape and color. These dental prosthesis can be used to strengthen a tooth that has been cracked or cover a tooth that has a large cavity and cannot be treated with a filling. Additionally, some patients may opt for a crown to improve the appearance of their smile, because in addition to providing extra support for a tooth’s structure, this treatment is also ideal for covering up imperfections.
Bridges are a restorative procedure that can be used to replace one or multiple missing teeth. This treatment uses two crowns, one on either side of a gap left from a missing tooth, to form a bridge. After the crowns are in place, a false tooth is is attached to the bridge to fill in the gap and restore your smile. Bridges are an effective, natural-looking solution for patients with missing teeth who may not be candidates for dental implants. Call us today to see if this option may be right for you!
