Dental Crowns and Bridges

Are your teeth chipped, damaged, or broken in a way that causes you pain or discomfort? Olympia Hills Family Dental can help you restore your full bite and smile with dental crowns.

What is a Dental Crown and How Can it Help Me?

A dental crown from Olympia Hills Family Dental is a beautiful custom-made work-of-art made from the strongest materials to cover and protect a damaged tooth. Our lab technicians are craftsmen with years of experience and as a result, our crowns are so natural and comfortable, you won’t believe it’s not your own tooth. Each crown is expertly crafted with high quality porcelain for a natural translucence that matches the rest of your smile. A crown effectively restores your full bite and smile aesthetic while preserving your remaining tooth structure to allow you to keep your natural tooth longer.

Why Do I Need a Dental Crown Placed?

Crowns are necessary when the structure of your tooth is cracked or damaged from breakage or decay. Dr. Hafen and Dr. Gonzalez often recommend that patients get a crown following a root canal. A fractured tooth is non-functional as a chewing surface and can lead to gum and teeth alignment problems. It is best to receive care for a tooth fracture as soon as possible.

Every crown is custom-made to fit your smile. We create crowns using impressions of your natural teeth to ensure the perfect bite force and function.

What are Dental Bridges?

The loss of a single tooth can have a major impact on your dental health and personal appearance.

When one or more teeth are missing, you have to deal with the unsightly gaps in your smile, and the remaining teeth can shift out of their normal position. These teeth are more susceptible to decay or gum disease because they are more difficult to clean around.

A non-removable dental bridge can restore your smile to normal function by replacing the missing teeth. It will improve the entire health of your mouth by keeping the surrounding teeth in position and can also help maintain the structure of your face and jaw.

A popular alternative to a dental bridge is dental implants.
