Chips, gaps, cracks? They can be embarrassing but they can also lead to tooth decay, trouble eating, and a misaligned bite. Using advanced technology and a personalized approach to everything we do, we offer dental bridges and dental crowns in Chesapeake and Virginia Beach, VA that not only match your oral health needs but your personality, too. Whether as a stand-alone treatment or a single piece of a complete smile makeover, we welcome you to find out how a crown or bridge can rebuild the oral function and aesthetics you’ve been missing.
Do You Need a Crown or a Bridge?
Broken tooth or missing tooth? We have a solution for both! Dental crowns are “caps” that cover a single tooth and restore strength and aesthetics. Cracked, chipped, and broken teeth are all good candidates for a crown. Those in need of a root canal can receive a dental crown immediately after treatment, ensuring the tooth is sealed off from future infection and helping you avoid a second visit to another office. Our dental crowns are designed to protect and rebuild a weakened tooth and can last for many years.
If you’re missing a tooth, we also offer custom bridges. Bridges are designed to “bridge” the gap left behind by one or more lost teeth. Essentially a series of connected crowns, bridges are anchored to one or more adjacent healthy teeth. If you’d prefer to anchor your bridge on a dental implant instead, we replace single missing teeth, to a full arch of missing teeth using crowns and bridges designed specifically to restore dental implants. Whichever solution is right for you, you can expect a personalized process with your unique needs in mind every step of the way.
Our Personalized Process
Whether a full arch bridge of new teeth or a single crown, we take a detailed and personalized approach to your care. During your consultation, we want to get to know you. We’ll discuss your needs and expectations before determining the best solution together, whether a crown, tooth-supported bridge, or dental implant solution. Next, we’ll use a wand-like piece of technology, our intraoral scanner, to capture digital impressions of your current smile. Combining this, your unique goals and aesthetic preferences, and any other imaging diagnostics, we’ll develop your custom treatment plan. Using digital smile design technology, we’re even able to show you what your future smile will look like before your treatment plan begins!
When your new crown or bridge is ready, we’ll secure it to your existing teeth or dental implant. We’ll make sure it blends seamlessly with the rest of your smile as well as your bite for proper and lasting function. We want you to be as confident about your treatment as we are, which is why we encourage you to take part in the treatment planning process and see your preferences come to life!
In addition to the routine cleanings and checkups, I have had two crowns and an implant done. Keep up the good work!
