Dental Crowns & Bridges
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped restoration that simply fits over the top of a damaged tooth, which is why it is sometimes called a “cap.” With it, Dr. Danice Nelsen Couch can repair a large cavity, put a broken tooth back together, strengthen a weakened tooth, and even cosmetically enhance a misshapen or undersized tooth. They can be made of a variety of materials, ranging from strong and durable metal for the back teeth to beautiful and natural-looking porcelain for the front teeth.
And, by attaching a pair of crowns to additional prosthetic teeth, they can also be used to fill in the gap left by one or more teeth missing in a row, forming a bridge. No matter which restoration would suit you best, they take about two appointments to design and place, and Dr. Danice Nelsen Couch will make sure the final result blends in perfectly.
