A crown is an effective method of saving a tooth that is cracked, broken or damaged. It is a relatively simple procedure and takes two visits to the dentist. It is especially effective for improving misshaped, large or crooked teeth that are ruining your smile.

The procedure consists of numbing the problem tooth area, shaping the tooth and making an impression. This impression is sent to a dental laboratory to create a permanent crown. In the meantime you will have a temporary one in place until you return to Dr. Brown’s office where the lab prepared one will be attached.

The advantages of a crown are:

• Avoids extraction

• Improves talking and chewing

• Is long lasting

Another procedure that has gained in popularity is a bridge. This is a popular method of replacing a missing tooth or several teeth. During this procedure, X-rays are taken and supporting teeth prepared to support the bridge. A temporary bridge is attached until the dental laboratory prepares a permanent one. There are two types of bridges.

• A permanent bridge

• A removable bridge

A permanent bridge consists of one or two artificial teeth that are cemented to the adjoining teeth. This allows a person to enjoy the benefit of a natural look as well as enjoying eating without the problem of food being lodged between the teeth.

A removable bridge is used when there are teeth missing on each side of the lower jaw. In this case, a bar, which fits behind your regular teeth, is shaped to your mouth with the missing teeth attached. This type of bridge has metal prongs which attach to permanent teeth to keep the bridge in place. It is removable, which makes it easy to keep clean.
