If your smile has been weakened by extensive decay, injury, disease, or lost teeth, you’ll be interested in crown and bridge services from JL Dental in Arnold, Missouri. With porcelain crowns and fixed dental bridges, Drs. Jonathan and Laura Mears can replace missing teeth and strengthen damaged ones to rebuild your smile. Did you know that thanks to modern materials, tooth replacement, and repair today is easy, relatively fast, effective, and most of all, beautiful? We can provide attractive metal-free crowns and bridges for our patients, and no one will ever have to know that you’ve had dental work done.
Crowns have traditionally been made from a variety of materials; today, crowns are often made from gold, porcelain-fused-to-metal, and 100% porcelain. While gold crowns are still sometimes required for various reasons related to the structure of the damaged tooth and your oral health, we can use 100% porcelain crowns in many cases. Your oral health always comes first, but aesthetics play a big role in smile satisfaction, so we’ll work with you to find a solution that will make you happy in every way.
Crowns are used in cases of:
Fixed bridges allow our dentists to offer a non-removable tooth replacement option that doesn’t require surgery, as dental implants would. Fixed bridges are held in place with porcelain crowns, offering confidence through a non-invasive process that builds on your remaining teeth to provide a conservative tooth replacement solution. If you want something more permanent than dentures but less intensive than dental implants, fixed bridges from JL Dental may be right for you.
Fixed bridges work best for patients with remaining teeth that are sturdy enough to support the dental prosthetic. Some patients may need to opt for a partial denture instead, and that’s okay, too. We want you to get the exact right treatment for you, which is why we do not offer cookie-cutter dental care. Our crowns and bridges are always custom-made, as are all the other dental restorations provided by JL Dental.
