Dental Crowns and Bridges

Maplewood, MN Region Patients Have Options to Restore Their Smile

Dental Crown Before and AfterPatients often find themselves needing dental work such as crowns and bridges for a variety of reasons. At Bluejay Family Dentistry, we treatment plan each crown or bridge not only to solve the immediate problem of a cracked or missing tooth, but also plan for how these treatments will affect your entire mouth for decades to come. We are here to serve you and your family for a lifetime of excellent dental care.

Crowns

A dental crown can support a tooth that is worn, cracked, broken, or damaged by decay. It’s also a good way to cover a discolored tooth. The crown caps the entire exposed portion of the teeth, providing protection and reinforcement. Because they are made out of porcelain and mimic the translucency of natural teeth, crowns will give an injured tooth a new, attractive appearance.

Bridges

A dental bridge is just what it sounds like – it bridges the gap left behind by a missing tooth. A bridge is fixed on either end to remaining teeth and contains an artificial replacement tooth.

Bridges are important for several reasons. They restore your smile, allow you to chew normally and enjoy your favorite meals, and will help support adjacent teeth. If a gap is left empty without replacing the tooth, there is a high risk of other teeth moving out of alignment and becoming crooked.

For high-quality crowns and bridges with service that always goes the extra mile, call Dr. Simonson at (651) 770-2900.
