Repair Damage With Dental Crowns & Bridges in Glen Ellyn

Dental crowns, which cover your entire tooth, are a versatile option for repairing dental damage like breaks, cracks, and large cavities. They can fix cosmetic flaws too, like discoloration or a misshapen tooth. And they can anchor a dental bridge or attach to dental implants to cover gaps left by a missing tooth or teeth. Learn more about what a dental bridge can do with these videos from Spear Education.

With a dental crown or bridge, we can:

  • Restore your smile’s appearance
  • Strengthen teeth and protect them from further damage
  • Make it possible for you to chew your food with ease
  • Help prevent damage to surrounding teeth and improve overall oral health

Porcelain Crowns Look & Function Like Natural Teeth

Lots of materials can be used for dental crowns, including various metals. But metal crowns really stick out in your smile. In contrast, porcelain crowns blend in seamlessly with your own teeth. Some dentists use porcelain over metal, which can create an unsightly dark line at your gumline. All-porcelain or zirconia crowns and bridges offer the most aesthetic results! In addition, they should last decades with proper care.
