Dental Crowns & Bridges
Dental crowns are designed to cover an individual tooth, restoring its shape, function, and appearance. There are several reasons why Dr. Putt may recommend a crown to his patients, including:
- Severe dental decay
- Traumatic injury
- Weakened tooth structure
- Aesthetic issues
- To restore a dental implant
Dental crowns are also used in conjunction with dental bridges, which can be used to restore one or more missing teeth in a row along a single arch. By fitting the prosthetic into place and attaching dental crowns to nearby healthy teeth as “anchors,” patients can enjoy a fixed, sturdy replacement that functions just like the real thing.
Tooth-colored fillings offer patients several advantages over their traditional amalgam counterparts. The composite resin material we use is conservative, biocompatible, and lifelike, and the lack of metal means that there won’t be any unpleasant movement when the filling is exposed to particularly hot or cold temperatures. With the right amount of at-home maintenance and professional appointments with Dr. Putt and his team, patients can look forward to their new filling lasting for many years to come.
