Our crowns & bridges in Statesville, NC can drastically enhance the look and functionality of your smile.
If a few of your teeth are cracked or chipped, you may be hesitant to smile in pictures and at people as they pass you on the street. However, just because your smile isn’t perfect right now doesn’t mean that it can’t be in the future. Depending on your particular circumstances, at Kotis Family Dentistry, we may recommend the use of crowns & bridges when you come into our office in Statesville, North Carolina.
Unlike dentures, crowns & bridges are cemented directly onto the teeth that already exist in your mouth. However, it is important to understand that we may recommend a crown instead of a bridge, and vice versa, in different situations. For example, we may suggest the use of a crown if we need to replace a large filling in one of your teeth, if we need to cover a dental implant, or if we need to restore a tooth that was fractured in an accident.
Comparatively, we may recommend the use of a bridge if there are gaps in your teeth or you are missing several teeth. Regardless of whether we determine that a bridge or a crown will be best for you and your teeth, we will make sure that you are pleased with the result.
If you want to know more about crowns & bridges and when each of these restorative options is used, give us a call at Kotis Family Dentistry today. Remember, we are here to help you enhance the look of your smile and maintain the health of your teeth and gums.
