The two most common treatment options for replacing and restoring missing or damaged teeth are dental crowns and bridges. Crowns and bridges not only restore your smile, but also help prevent further damage to your teeth and bite. For more information about dental crowns and bridges in Ridgewood, New Jersey, and to schedule your consultation with Dr. John Aston, call us today at 201-444-1048.
Dental crowns (caps) cover the entire visible surface of your tooth to restore strength, functionality, and appearance. Each crown is custom-made for a perfect fit, and offers a long-lasting solution for your tooth and smile. Crowns can be fit over an existing, albeit damaged, tooth, or be placed atop implants to complete a restoration.
Dental bridges, on the other hand, may be recommended when you lose one tooth or several teeth in a row. Missing teeth eventually cause your remaining teeth to shift in place, giving you a misaligned smile, a bad bite, and possibly even a TMJ disorder. Bridges close the gaps to maintain a functional bite, help you chew and speak properly, and restore your beautiful smile. Bridges are also custom-made, and can be anchored in your mouth through crowns on adjoining teeth or with an implant.
