If you have a damaged or missing tooth, we have a few options. Crowns and bridges are two of the more conservative options. They can protect and replace teeth with a minimum of work. For even faster restorations, we can create and install a crown in one appointment!
You don’t have to endure a broken, painful, or missing tooth any longer. Call Ottley Smiles Dental Center for a crown or bridge procedure now.
What Is a Dental Crown?
The top and sides of a tooth are called the “crown.” The crown is what lets you chew naturally, and it’s what people see when you smile.
When we talk about giving you a new crown, we’re talking about a customized tooth cap that covers the top and sides of your tooth. This cap gives your tooth:
- Strength and protection against damage and infection.
- A new chewing surface that works like your original tooth.
- A beautiful new look, free from cracks or discoloration.
We can make crowns out of porcelain, which looks just like a real tooth. It reflects light the same way, and we’ll color-match it to your other teeth for a flawless appearance.

What Is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is a time-tested approach to replacing a tooth or teeth. If you’re missing a tooth, we can put a customized dental crown into that space. It will let you chew and smile just like a new, natural tooth!
How? The bridge is an appliance that attaches to tooth crowns on both sides of the gap. From there, the bridge spans across the gap, holding a new crown in that space.
Besides letting you chew and smile again, the bridge can also:
- Protect the tissue in the gap.
- Keep your healthy teeth from moving.
- Help you speak naturally.
- Prevent uneven tooth wear.
A new bridge can be a great way to restore and protect your smile!
