Sterling VA Dentist
At EverSmile Dentistry, we find that the best way to restore a tooth that is badly decayed or fractured is with a dental crown. Providing more support than a tooth-colored or silver filling, a crown is an excellent option for protecting the tooth and matching your natural tooth color to provide a natural, beautiful smile.
Crowns can also be used to strengthen areas where large fillings need to be replaced, and for use on dental implants. A popular choice aesthetically, a tooth-colored porcelain or porcelain-fused-to-golf crown can lighten your tooth color, narrow gaps, and reduce crowding.
Dental crowns cover and protect your underlying tooth like a cap or hat, and are cemented to your natural tooth with a strong adhesive that contains fluoride to help protect the tooth. They are durable and have enough strength to even withstand the stress of chewing on your back molars.
A cemented, or non-removable, bridge is an excellent way to replace one or more missing teeth and enable you to eat more comfortably and look more natural when a dental implant is not an option. It is often used to fill spaces, prevent remaining teeth from shifting out of position, enhance chewing and speaking ability, and in restoring your smile.
Once created from impressions and molds, your bridge is custom-fitted to you and permanently cemented to anchoring teeth in front of and behind the gap. We also show you how to clean and care for your bridge so that it will last for many years.
When several natural teeth are missing, we may recommend dental implant restorations to replace them.
