Here at R. Gentry Matthews, DDS, we are proud to offer crowns & bridges to our patients.
Crowns are placed to help improve your smile. They cover up your bad tooth, giving you a natural-looking, healthy smile.
They are used for many reasons. They help to keep fillings in place, especially if you have had multiple fillings. They protect and strengthen your regular teeth. They can also be placed over discolored and misshapen teeth to improve your smile.
Crowns are placed right over your teeth, so they are as strong as your normal teeth. You will be able to eat any foods you like without worrying about your crowns.
Many patients lose teeth as they age. This can actually change the way your mouth looks and functions. It also can change the look of your face. Bridges are made with artificial teeth to help improve the shape and function of your mouth.
There are many options for bridges. They are made of different materials including porcelain, gold, and alloys. We also offer both removable bridges, which you can remove yourself, and fixed ones. Fixed ones are implanted right into your jaw or under your gums.
After having a thorough examination with x-rays, we will be able to discuss your options so we can make the right choice for your mouth.
If you have any questions about crowns & bridges or think you might need one, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (336) 227-6636.
