Want a better-looking smile? Dental crowns and bridges can give you the healthy, beautiful smile you deserve. Dr. Jeffrey Golder in dental crowns, dental bridges, restorative dentistryGreenwood, IN offers a full range of dental services, including dental crowns and bridges. Read on to find out what crowns and bridges can do for your smile.

Benefits of Crowns

Stronger Teeth- If your teeth have been severely damaged by decay, dental fillings can't replace enough of the teeth or make the teeth strong enough. Dental crowns will make the damaged teeth stronger.

A Pretty Smile- Crowns can be used to improve the appearance of your teeth. They may be placed to cover discolored, cracked, broken or misshapen teeth. Porcelain dental crowns are translucent and smooth, matching the shade and size of your own teeth. They look just like natural teeth.

Save Your Teeth- A tooth that has been weakened can be saved by covering it with a crown. When a tooth is severely damaged by a trauma, decay or an infection, the tooth becomes weaker. This leaves the tooth prone to further damage unless your Greenwood dentist does something to preserve it.

Benefits of Bridges

Replace Lost Teeth- Dental bridges will give you a smile you love. Dental bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth. Conventional dental bridges involve creating a dental crown for the tooth or dental implant on either side of the missing tooth, with an artificial tooth in between.

Prevent Shifting- Once a tooth is lost, the surrounding teeth start to shift at an accelerated rate. A fixed dental bridge will prevent the existing teeth from moving out of place. When bridges fill in your smile's gaps, your teeth are supported on all sides and have no place to shift.

Good looks- With a bridge, not only will you fill the gaps in your smile, you will also improve the appearance of the teeth that you are crowning. Porcelain bridges look great and match the natural teeth well. With a bridge, you will enjoy the confidence of having an attractive smile.
