Find out which cosmetic dentistry is the best choice for a healthier smile.

We all want to have the perfect smile but common dental flaws can keep us from having just that. Luckily, your Mineola, TX general Crownsdentist Dr. Kyle Weedon has many options to whip your smile back into shape. If you are dealing with a severely damaged or missing tooth, find out how cosmetic dentistry can help you.

What is a dental crown?

Looking for a way to protect a damaged or weak tooth from further complications? Then dental crowns could be the answer. These dental restorations are shaped just like teeth and are placed over the entire tooth to become the tooth’s newer, stronger outer surface.

Dental crowns are also cemented into place so they last several years before needing to be replaced. Dental crowns can be made from a variety of different materials including porcelain, ceramic, silver and gold.

What is a dental bridge?

A dental bridge is another restorative treatment that is designed to fill gaps in your smile caused by tooth loss. A dental bridge contains two dental crowns on either side and a false tooth (or pontic) in the middle. The two dental crowns are cemented to the teeth on either side of the gap to anchor the new tooth into place.

Who should get a dental crown and bridge?

Here are some reasons why your Mineola, TX dentist may recommend a dental crown and bridge:

  • You want to protect a tooth that is severely cracked or damaged from decay
  • You need to cover a tooth that has serious discolorations or is misshapen
  • You need to cover a dental implant
  • You want to restore a tooth after root canal treatment
  • You want to replace one or more missing teeth

Ready to regain that healthy smile? Then it’s high time you turned to your Mineola dentist for the proper care your smile deserves. Call our office today to schedule your next dental appointment!
