Crowns & Bridges in San Diego
Are you bothered by damaged teeth that affect your appearance and your lifestyle?
Restorative dental treatments like crowns and bridges are one of the most important services we offer. Damaged teeth are unhealthy and get in the way of enjoying your life. You may even be reminded of your damaged tooth every time you try to speak or eat.
At Peak Dental, we provide high-quality dental care that considers all your unique needs.
Dr. Nguyen has been creating durable and natural-looking restorations for years, giving him the skill to make crowns and bridges that restore function, blend perfectly with your smile, and last a long time.
Versatile Dental Crowns
Dental crowns are a popular restoration placed over a weakened tooth to strengthen and protect it from further damage. Crowns also restore your ability to speak and chew normally.
Here are a few cases where we may recommend a dental crown:
- Support and protection for a tooth after root canal treatment
- Restoration of dental implants
- Reinforcement for a tooth weakened by teeth grinding
- Protection for a broken tooth that can’t be fixed with dental bonding
Since crowns completely surround a natural tooth, they are also a great option for addressing certain cosmetic flaws, like hiding a tooth that is severely discolored and cannot be whitened. There are several materials that can be used, and Dr. Nguyen will help you decide which is best for your needs.
Fixed Bridges Restore Smiles
A missing tooth makes you feel self-conscious and makes chewing and speaking difficult, but a bridge allows you to eat and speak easily and enhances your appearance.
The addition of a dental bridge also helps protect your oral health. When a tooth is lost, surrounding teeth tend to gradually shift into the gap. As these teeth move, your dental bite may be affected and you may eventually experience problems.
We place many dental bridges to accomplish the following:
- Allow you to chew and eat normally
- Fill the space left by a missing tooth
- Prevent movement of surrounding teeth
- Provide a permanent alternative to a removable partial denture
Fixed bridges are attached to neighboring teeth with dental crowns and are very stable. If appropriate, we’ll be happy to talk to you about the possibility of adding a dental implant for the greatest stability possible.
