Complete Your Smile With a Crown or Bridge
Here at our Nashua office, we use natural-looking porcelain dental crowns and bridges to restore the function and beauty of your smile. If you have a tooth that’s been damaged by dental trauma, decay, or tooth loss, these long-lasting restoration options allow us to provide you with a beautiful new smile.
Dr. Bobbitt provides patient-centered care to ensure each patient leaves with a stunning, fully functioning smile. These restorations will have you looking your best while supporting excellent oral health.
What is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown (also known as a tooth cap) is placed over a newly restored tooth to look and function like a natural tooth. A porcelain crown or gold crown can also serve as the tooth portion of a dental implant.
Dr. Bobbitt creates each crown specifically for you. He matches the color, size, and shape of your natural teeth so it fits comfortably along your gum line. Your crown is custom-made to protect the damaged tooth, strengthen it, and enhance the beauty of your smile.
Is a Dental Crown Right For You?
Our valued patients in the Greater Nashua area choose dental crowns for a number of different reasons, such as:
- Protecting chipped, cracked, or damaged teeth
- Completing a dental implant
- Securing a dental bridge
- Restoring a tooth after root canal therapy
- Improving the appearance of crooked teeth
What is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is a tooth replacement treatment that fills a gap in your smile. The replacement tooth in a dental bridge is referred to as a pontic. Bridges are typically held in place with dental crowns that are attached to the natural teeth at each end of the gap. But bridges can also be secured using dental implants.
To support the prosthetic, neighboring teeth at each end of the gap must be reshaped so your temporary crowns fit snugly. Once your bridge is ready, you can return to our Nashua dental office to have it placed.
Benefits of Dental Bridges
If you’re seeking a natural-looking restoration option at an affordable price, then a dental bridge may be right for you. There are many advantages you’ll enjoy with a bridge, including:
- Restore functionality for eating and speaking
- Help preserve the natural shape of your face
- Enhance chewing ability
- Prevent your natural teeth from shifting position
