Dental Crowns | Dentist in Ann Arbor, MI | Bonnie P. Patel, DDS

Your natural teeth are strong and “built” to last, but over time they can weaken and need a little help due to poor dental hygiene, discoloration, or injury. Crowns and bridges are two common restorations offered by dentists that can shore up damaged teeth or fill in smile gaps. After some research and a visit to the dentist, you may learn that a crown or bridge is the best solution for your smile problems. 

Dental Crowns 
Crowns are dental devices that form a strong barrier around the root of a natural tooth. Modern crowns are usually made of porcelain, but metal or ceramic crowns are also available. They are usually added to your teeth after root canal therapy or when a tooth has become damaged beyond repair. Patients who have intrinsically stained teeth that don’t respond to whitening can benefit from crowns.

Dental Bridges
Your dentist can bridge the gap in your smile using a dental bridge. This restorative solution is commonly used when there is one or two (adjacent) missing teeth. Two crowns provide the anchor for a replacement tooth (or two) at the center. Patients who have gone a long time with a missing tooth and have minimal bone tissue are often candidates for bridges.

Dental Benefits of Crowns and Bridges 
Explore these important benefits of getting crowns or bridges to reinforce or restore your smile:

- They are long lasting (five to 15 years or longer).
- They look very natural and beautiful (matched to your existing teeth).
- Once integrated into your smile, crowns and bridges are indistinguishable from the rest of your teeth.
- You'll have an easier time eating and don’t have to worry about the device slipping out (as is sometimes the case with partial dentures).
- You'll be able to take better care of your teeth and gums to ensure long-term dental health.
