Crowns & Bridges
Restore your tooth with a dental crown, which is a cover or “cap” that can make your tooth stronger and improve the way the tooth looks. A crown can help a cracked tooth, a worn down tooth, or a weak tooth. You may need a crown if you have a cavity that’s too large to fill with a filling. Crowns can also be used to simply improve your appearance if you have a tooth that is discolored or is misshapen. If you have recently had root canal therapy, a dental crown may also be used to protect the work and the restored tooth. Dental crowns in Lexington can help you improve your smile and your overall oral health today.

A dental bridge is used to replace a missing tooth. It is a prosthetic that connects two crowns and “bridges” the gap between missing teeth. Two crowns are placed on your healthy, natural teeth and used to anchor the bridge. A false tooth is used to replace your missing tooth or missing teeth.
Dental bridges can help improve your smile, your tooth function, and the health of your remaining healthy teeth. Dental bridges can give you the ability to chew properly or speak clearly. Bridges can also prevent your remaining teeth from moving and can maintain the shape of your face and jaw after loosing a tooth or teeth.
Our dentist in Lexington will ensure that your bridge has the right shape and color for a natural look and feel. Dental bridges are affordable and can last many years with proper oral care and hygiene. Caring for your bridge is relatively easy and involves the same process as maintaining proper oral health, including brushing twice a day, flossing daily, maintaining a healthy diet, and seeing your dentist regularly for maintenance and examination.
