Crowns and Bridges

DENTAL CROWNS
A dental crown is a protective covering that restores and improves a tooth’s appearance while also shielding and strengthening it. Drs. Davis and Matthews permanently fix a crown on a tooth to keep it in place, so it will last for many years. Dental crowns are matched to patient’s teeth to provide a natural appearance.

At Excel Dental Drs. Davis and Matthews would recommend a tooth crown for:
• Large fillings or a root canal
• Holding a dental bridge in place
• As replacement teeth with an implant
• Improving the appearance of your smile
• Getting rid of old dental crown pain

DENTAL BRIDGES
A dental bridge is a restorative dental appliance custom made by Drs. Davis and Matthews for the purpose of replacing missing teeth. It is secured in a patient’s mouth by attachment to the surrounding teeth on both sides of the teeth that are missing. A dental bridge can be fixed or removable depending on the patient’s individual case and needs. The dental bridge is also matched to a patient’s natural teeth to provide a natural appearance and healthy smile. A patient benefits from a bridge by having renewed confidence in their smile and ease with eating by replacing missing teeth.

At Excel Dental Drs. Davis and Matthews would recommend a dental bridge for:
• Preventing teeth from shifting where teeth may be missing
• Supporting cheeks and lips to improve speech and the appearance of a smile
