Crowns and Bridges

Dental Crowns & Bridges

A crown is a cap, for a damaged tooth. When created and placed correctly, crowns are unnoticeable from your other teeth.

Crowns can be used for many reasons. They can replace a large filling, protect a fractured tooth, or cover a tooth that has become discolored. At the end of the day though, crowns will help maintain a healthy smile and bite.

There are many ways to create and place a crown.
Your Nashville Family Dentistry provider will help determine what type of crown works best for you.

A bridge is placed to correct teeth that sit on either side of a gap. A dental bridge can restore your smile, while also maintaining your face shape. Perhaps most importantly, a well-placed bridge will prevent your other teeth from falling out of alignment.

Bridges can also help you properly chew food, speak and place the jaws together when biting. which helps prevent other teeth in the mouth from moving out of place or drifting apart. Nashville Family Dentistry’s bridges may last many years when properly cared for. Let our expert dental team create your bridge.
