Missing and broken teeth can not only negatively impact your mouth’s ability to function but can also create additional dental problems for the surrounding teeth. In most cases the surrounding teeth will shift and may create an area that is difficult to clean or restore. This can ultimately lead to an uneven, unattractive, and unhealthy smile.
Carmel Professional Dentistry can restore your smile, improve the function of your teeth, and more importantly preserve your oral health. If you have a broken tooth, a crown may be a good option to restore your tooth. If you are missing multiple teeth, a bridge that would be permanently cemented into your mouth may be the better option.
This was the best crown prep I have ever had (and I have a mouthful of crowns)! Dr. Crowley Correll and her assistant kept me informed through the entire process.
I am a new patient, new to Charlotte, and I had a crown come loose over the Christmas holidays. I called the first day back open to explain my dilemma. Even though it was their "busiest day of the year", they fit me in within a couple of hours and treated me like family. I'm very grateful.
A crown is a synthetic “cap”that is is placed on top of a damaged tooth to restore it back to its original size, shape, and appearance.
A patient may need a crown for the following reasons:
Dental bridges consist of crowns that are placed on the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth. These adjacent teeth are called “abutment teeth.” In the space between the abutment teeth a synthetic tooth is fabricated that will replace and mimic the missing tooth or teeth.
Uncared for, broken, or missing teeth not only harm your smile; they can affect your chewing and overall oral health. If you have broken or missing teeth, we urge you to contact Carmel Professional Dentistry today!
