Dental Crowns & Bridges

When you have damaged or missing teeth, you may often wonder, “How does this look to others?” This ongoing concern may cause you to lose your self-confidence. But you can reclaim it and a lot more with dental crowns and dental bridges. Both are affordable, customizable ways to make your smile whole and healthy again. Essentially artificial teeth, dental crowns, and bridges match the color of neighboring teeth for a natural-looking smile. If you are interested in dental crowns and bridges in the Indianapolis, IN area, call our team or schedule your visit online today!

Dental crowns replace the above-the-gums portion of your teeth after it’s been weakened by trauma or decay, you’ve undergone a root canal, or you’ve received dental implants. In the case of damage or a root canal, a new crown may be all you need to finish off your treatment. Constructed of durable materials, dental crowns or “caps” withstand all normal dental functions and will remain firmly in place after a pain-free attachment process. They fulfill a variety of vital purposes:

  • Repairing broken or cracked teeth
  • Cover discolored or poorly shaped teeth
  • Fortifying teeth after a root canal
  • Rehabilitating worn or brittle teeth
  • Contributing to a smile makeover

What Are Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges are basically rows of dental crowns that span or “bridge” the space left by teeth that have fallen out or been extracted. When one or more teeth are lost, your remaining teeth can drift from their proper positions. With a dental bridge in place, you’ll have a full smile and full chewing power again. 


When you’re missing teeth, you’re also missing out on full enjoyment of meals, conversations, and life in general. Of all the teeth replacement options out there, dentures have been around the longest. And they’re still in wide use today for a very good reason: they work! Dentures reliably deliver the function and appearance of real teeth. What’s more, the technology has evolved so that dentures are now more customizable and natural-looking than ever—and can last up to 20 years. 

Benefits Of Dentures

  • Return your complete, attractive smile
  • Allow you to enjoy a more satisfying selection of foods
  • Enable you to speak and laugh without worry or discomfort
  • Save you money on some teeth replacement options

Whether you have a few missing teeth, or all of them are gone, dentures can give you a complete smile again. With some healthy teeth still in your mouth, you can reclaim a full smile with partial dentures. These will eliminate any gaps resulting from missing teeth and stop your healthy teeth from shifting out of place. If you’ve been left edentulous (toothless) as a result of decay, oral trauma, or hereditary factors, full dentures will equip you with a fully functional, custom-fabricated set of teeth that fit easily onto your gums.
