Dental Crowns & Bridges in

At Birchwood Dental, we offer a variety of restoration options to treat teeth that have been damaged or lost. Two of our most popular options are high-quality, porcelain crowns and bridges.

Dental Crowns & Bridges

A crown is used to cover or "cap" a damaged tooth. A crown can strengthen a damaged tooth, and improve its appearance, shape or alignment. When a single tooth is lost, a crown can also be placed on top of an implant to provide a functional, natural-looking structure. Crowns have a wide variety of uses including:

  • Replace a large filling when there isn't enough tooth left
  • Protect a weak tooth from damage
  • Restore a fractured tooth
  • Support for a dental bridge
  • Replace a lost tooth
  • Cover a discolored or poorly shaped tooth
  • Protect a tooth that has had root canal treatment

When teeth are lost, the remaining teeth can shift into the empty spaces. This creates a bad bite. The lack of balance caused by missing teeth can also cause gum disease and temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ). Dental bridges are commonly used to replace missing teeth and to prevent these issues. The bridge spans the space where teeth are missing. They are attached to the natural teeth which have been treated with crowns or implants surrounding the empty spot. These teeth serve as strong support for the bridge.

The dental office has obviously had a lot of thought put into it. It has very soothing decor, and the kids’ play area and Keurig makes waiting less of a hassle. The staff was very friendly and personable and helped make the experience more comfortable overall.
