Don’t let dental issues ruin your smile. Find out if crowns or bridges could help.
We have all heard the expression “laughter is the best medicine”, but some of us hide our laughter because we’re embarrassed by the way our smiles look. If you are dealing with damaged, weakened or even missing teeth it’s time to get your beautiful smile back and find the joy of laughter once more! Our Lakewood, CO family dentist Dr. Thomas Nyvold can help!
When a tooth has become too damaged or weak due to infection, decay or trauma, sometimes a dental filling just isn’t enough to support and restore the tooth. In this case, getting a dental crown from our general dentist in Lakewood, CO can protect your entire tooth to restore full biting function and prevent further damage.
Perhaps you have gaps in your smile where teeth used to be? If so you’ll want to seek treatment from our Lakewood, CO dentist to restore your smile. Leaving tooth loss untreated can lead to bone loss and cause teeth to shift out of alignment. But a dental bridge can easily restore your smile and fill the gap where your missing tooth or teeth used to be. A traditional dental bridge uses two crowns on either end of the gap, which are then placed over prepared natural teeth to support the false tooth or teeth in between.
Both dental crowns and bridges are custom made to fit your mouth, which makes these restorations unique. First your tooth, or teeth, are prepared for crowns or a bridge, then impressions are taken of your smile, next we send the impressions to our lab where they create your custom dental crown or bridge, then we place your beautiful new crown or bridge to revive your smile once more.
If you are interested in finding out more about these restorations and what they can do for you, call T.E.N. Family Dentistry in Lakewood, CO to schedule your consultation. Let us help you achieve your perfect smile!
