Dental Crowns and Bridges in Seymour TN
At Seymour Dental Associates, we can solve problems like broken or decayed teeth with dental crowns or bridges. Dental crowns cover and rebuild compromised teeth with a reliable and aesthetic porcelain restoration. A bridge offers a replacement for one or more adjacent teeth with porcelain prosthetic teeth that fill in the gaps.
Dr. Corey and Dr. Haley work with trusted dental labs to craft beautiful and durable dental crowns and bridges that you can rely on for years to come.
When We Recommend a Dental Crown in Seymour
A ceramic crown is designed to rebuild your entire tooth and covers the remaining healthy tooth structure like a cap to protect the integrity of the root. With your new crown, you'll be able to eat, chew, smile, and talk easily, enjoying all the functions of a natural tooth.
Our dentists match your crown to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth and complement your smile. They may recommend a tooth crown in these situations:
- To strengthen a tooth that's had root canal therapy
- To restore a tooth that's broken or decayed beyond what a filling can repair
- To rebuild a worn or chipped tooth
- As a single tooth replacement for a dental implant
- For cosmetic improvement of a discolored or misshapen tooth
Dr. Corey and Dr. Haley use the latest dental technology like the intraoral camera and digital x-rays to diagnose the need for a crown. Then, they'll review your treatment options with you to make sure you're selecting the best restoration option for your smile.
When We Recommend a Dental Bridge in Seymour
A dental bridge can be an ideal solution if you're living with missing teeth and you're not a candidate for a dental implant. A bridge holds artificial teeth between two crowns anchored to adjacent healthy teeth.
A bridge restores chewing function while keeping surrounding teeth from shifting into the open space of a missing tooth. It also returns the natural look of your tooth so you can smile with confidence again.
Getting a Dental Crown or Bridge
The process for completing your dental crown or bridge is the same and requires two appointments. During the first visit, your dentist will prepare your tooth or teeth for the crown or bridge and make a temporary restoration for you to wear while the dental lab handcrafts your new one. This process typically takes two to three weeks.
When your new crown or bridge is ready, you'll return to Seymour Dental Associates to have Dr. Corey or Dr. Haley place your final restoration.
