Serenity Family Dentistry – Crowns and Bridges

At Serenity Family Dentistry in Charlotte, we’d love to meet you. When you need to have a crown or a dental bridge inserted, we will make sure you have a comfortable visit.

When teeth are damaged or missing, your dentist may recommend crown work or installing bridges. Crowns are used to repair one tooth or to improve its shape. Bridgework is done to fill a gap left by missing teeth.

Both crowns and dental bridges are molded and then cemented to your teeth. A crown will have a cap cemented on top of a tooth. A bridge will be anchored to neighboring teeth.

Bridges do more to cover a gap as well. They also help keep existing teeth aligned.

Common Reasons Why Your Dentist May Recommend Having Crown Work

  1. Protect teeth
  2. Repair a weakened tooth
  3. Cover a misshaped tooth
  4. Cap a tooth after a root canal

What Type of Crown or Bridge Is Right For Me?

Your dentist can recommend the best options for you based on location and tooth design.

Porcelain and ceramic crowns and bridges are engineered to complement your smile by matching shades to your existing teeth. For stronger and more durable materials may be used. For example, your dentist may recommend a metal alloy, ceramic or an acrylic material for back teeth.

What Can I Expect?

In your consultation, be sure to ask your dentist about timing. Many crowns and bridges require the dentist make an impression of your teeth and then send off the impression for a laboratory to create your bridge or crown. Your dentist will create a temporary bridge or mold for you, and you may need to schedule another visit to have the permanent work inserted.

Caring For Your Crowns and Bridges

Dental crowns and bridges can last a lifetime. However, they can also loosen. Should they loosen, schedule a visit with our office. Dentists recommend that you maintain a normal dental routine in cleaning your teeth and recommend not chewing on sticky foods along with ice and hard candies.

Call us today at (704) 800-6695 to see if talk to our dentists to see if you may need a dental bridge or crown. To schedule a consultation, register for an appointment.

Our Happy Customers

"I had my first crown put in this past month. SFD, was forever patient as I was dealing with a cough, and continually had to ask to stop for a moment. The team is kind, sweet, and very thorough in explaining what's going on, and the costs, before any work begins. We were honestly thinking of finding a dentist closer to our home, but the staff at SFD has made this drive worth it for my family."

Jim Jim

"Dr. Attaway and her team are thorough and compassionate. They explain procedures and reasons for treatment plans recommended. I was a patient of this clinic prior to Dr. Attaway's arrival, and am pleased that Debbie and Laura are still there, and the new additions are also very nice."

Erin Erin

"Debbie is a great and personable hygienist and Dr. Attaway is gentle and kind. They were very honest with me about my teeth and how I should take care of them. Dr. Attaway even recommended a new mouth wash so that I could hopefully avoid a cavity. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a dentist."
