At Ellettsville Dental Center in Bloomington Indiana, our team would like nothing more than to be your trusted partner as you work toward revitalized oral health. That’s why we offer a variety of services designed to correct your unique problems and provide relief, structure, and renewed function to smiles of all shapes and sizes. Crown and bridge treatment is a crucial cornerstone of this care; these services can help patients in cases of cracks, chips, wear and tear, and even missing teeth.
Crowns are known for their versatility. They’re precisely designed to effectively “cap” a tooth, erasing cracks, cosmetic flaws, decay, structural damage, and much more if necessary. Better yet, our office focuses primarily on offering all-ceramic crowns, which look nearly identical to natural teeth, resulting in a beautifully seamless appearance. The crown treatment process usually takes a few visits to complete; we’ll provide you with a suitable temporary crown while your new, permanent one is being carefully crafted by a skilled technician. Then, you’ll return to our office so that we can place the new restoration and confirm that you’re completely satisfied and comfortable with your new look.
Dental crowns are also an important component of dental bridges, which can be used to replace one or more teeth in a row. The crowns are used as anchors to attach the bridge in the gap alongside healthy adjoining teeth. This teeth replacement solution is not removable, meaning you can enjoy a renewed sense of strength and durability when it comes to your smile.
