What Are Dental Crowns and Bridges?
Dental crowns and bridges are restorations that breathe life, beauty and function back into your smile. Made of natural-looking, tooth-colored materials, crowns and bridges are custom-created to blend naturally with surrounding teeth. Dental crowns rebuild single teeth after damage. Dental bridges replace missing teeth after tooth loss. If you have either of these conditions, Dr. Melody Stampe can determine if a crown or bridge is right for you. Dr. Stampe has over 20 years of experience in restoring function and cosmetic appeal to the smile. She and our friendly team are proud to offer high-quality crown and bridge procedures, along with exceptional patient care. Our crowns are made in the USA and follow FDA standards

Tooth Replacement With Dental Bridges
Dental bridges replace missing teeth by spanning the space left by tooth loss. Like crowns, bridges are made of durable tooth-colored materials and blend with smile for a seamless appearance. Bridges are created by fusing two or more crowns into a single unit. The end units of the bridge fit securely over teeth adjacent to the open space and are cemented in place, while the middle unit(s) replace the missing tooth (or teeth). Bridges restore biting and chewing function, and provide a natural, highly cosmetic look to the smile.
