At Oakwood Dental Arts, we understand that even one damaged or missing tooth can wreak havoc on your entire oral health if left untreated. A missing or severely damaged tooth can destroy the balance of your teeth and jaws and lead to other serious issues, such as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), gum disease, etc. As a result, we offer effective and permanent solutions in the form of dental crowns and bridges. Not only will the proper function be restored, but the porcelain material we use will make the artificial teeth indistinguishable from your own.
A crown is an artificial tooth that is designed to repair and strengthen a tooth that has suffered extensive damaged and can no longer function properly. If your tooth is severely fractured, broken or decayed, a crown will be placed onto the tooth to restore its original shape. You may also require a dental crown if your tooth has undergone a root canal or has lost a large filling, and the remaining fragment of your tooth requires additional support.
A bridge, on the other hand, is designed to replace one or more missing teeth, with the added benefit of maintaining the shape and positioning of your jaw and remaining healthy teeth. As a permanent tooth replacement solution, bridges are held in place by being fused to your natural teeth (if any) or dental implants or crowns.
If you live in the Freehold Township, NJ, area and think that you may be in need of dental crowns or bridges, contact us today for a consultation. You can reach us by phone or through our online contact form. At Oakwood Dental Arts, we believe that a beautiful and healthy smile is just one phone call away!
