Crown and Bridge

Request Appointment

If you're missing teeth or have damaged teeth, dental bridges and crowns can restore your smile. Our team at Stonetrace Family Dental in Viridian, TN, provides high-quality restorations to help you eat, speak, and smile with confidence.

What are Dental Bridges?

Bridges are an excellent solution for replacing one or more missing teeth without oral surgery. We use your surrounding natural teeth (called abutment teeth) or dental implants to support the artificial tooth replacements (called pontics). Together, these create your new "bridge," spanning the gap left by missing teeth.

The abutment teeth are reshaped and capped with dental crowns, which are then bonded to the pontic replacements. This prevents remaining teeth from shifting, prevents facial sagging, restores your smile, and allows you to eat your favorite foods again. Bridges are natural-looking, durable, and long-lasting restorations.

What are Dental Crowns?

Crowns, also called caps, are extremely versatile restorations that match the color and shape of your natural teeth. A crown fits snugly over a natural tooth or dental implant to provide protection and functionality.

For natural teeth, your dentist will reshape the tooth and take digital impressions to custom-fabricate your crown. You'll receive a temporary crown first while your permanent one is made. Once complete, we'll remove the temporary and permanently cement your new crown in place.

With proper care, dental crowns typically last 10-15 years. They are durable, natural-looking, improve chewing ability, and can be perfectly color-matched.
