Sometimes, achieving your best smile requires more than brushing, flossing, and overall good oral hygiene. If your teeth are cracked, damaged, or missing, you may need the help of Wayne E. Walcott, DDS, MS of Walcott Dental in Ann Arbor, MI. An expert in placing dental crowns and dental bridges, Dr. Walcott can restore your smile to its best state and have you feeling confident and comfortable.
If damage is your dental concern, crowns might be a good option for you. Here at our office in Ann Arbor, MI, our dentists can apply a permanent cap to your cracked, chipped, misshapen, or decayed tooth so that it looks good as new and is fully functional. Crowns are made of resin, metal, or ceramic material, making them durable and natural-looking.
Also suitable for teeth that have cavities too large to be filled, crowns are applied after your dentist properly resurfaces your tooth. During treatment, we will make an impression of your tooth and commission a crown to be created. Once the crown is finished, you will return to our office to have it affixed to your natural tooth with a permanent adhesive. If needed, your dentist will adjust the shape and positioning so you can chew, talk, and bite with ease.
If you have a tooth that is completely missing, you may find a bridge to be your best choice for reconstruction. Your dentist can use a bridge to fill the gap so that you not only look great, but it can also eat comfortably. A bridge uses an artificial tooth, colored and shaped to blend in with your natural teeth, that is supported by the teeth to its left and right. Your dentist will make sure that it is held securely in place, ensuring that the bridge is fully functional and undetectable.
