Cosmetic dentistry is a way to change the look of your teeth while positively affecting their functionality and health. Good dental work makes a world of difference in how you view yourself, how others view you, and how your teeth, jaws, gums, and face work together.

At Lovett Dental Jersey Village, we offer dental crowns and bridges for people who need to have substantial work done on their teeth. Crowns and bridges can change the way your smile looks, but they are also there to prevent bone loss in the jaw, make it easier to eat, and have a full, functioning set of teeth.

How Do Dental Crowns and Bridges Help Your Mouth?Woman looked at the details of her dental crowns

Both crowns and bridges are fixed dental restorations that replace damaged teeth. Each type of repair has its own benefits. However, each is designed to give individuals the confidence they desire from their smiles and restore practical function. Dental crowns and bridges don’t just restore or improve the look of teeth. They help to make sure future issues don’t arise.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns have several important benefits to consider. They help restore your teeth by:

  • Protecting and restoring the structure of the tooth. If you’ve had a root canal, then the treatment may be protected with a crown.
  • Creating a better esthetic. With a dental crown, the original shape of the tooth is maintained. The crowns are strong, but they’re also colored to look like other teeth in your mouth. They restore and improve the look of your smile.
  • Being durable. Crowns will stand the test of time, often lasting at least 15 years or longer.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges also have important benefits to think about when you’re selecting them. Bridges can:

  • Restore missing teeth and give back functionality. You will be able to eat and chew more effectively with the missing teeth restored.
  • Help with force distribution. Force distribution allows the force of chewing to move around the mouth, which evens the pressure on your teeth and jaw bone.
  • Restore a durable smile. You can expect durable results that last for years with dental bridges, so you have the smile you love for longer. They’re esthetically pleasing thanks to their design, which is made to look like real teeth.
