Crowns & Bridges
Tooth loss leads to many cascading complications in the mouth, which diminish your ability to chew and affect the aesthetic appearance of your smile. Dr. Mason can address many problems right in her office.
- Crowns can restore and enhance your smile. A crown can cover a broken or discolored tooth to improve its strength and appearance. If a tooth is weak, a crown can protect it and prevent a fracture. If there’s not enough of the natural tooth left to retain a large filling, a crown can provide strength, like a cast on a broken leg.
- A bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth. Missing teeth not only affect your appearance, but can interfere with speech, chewing and allows other teeth to drift into misalignment. It is crucial to keep your remaining teeth healthy and strong and in correct alignment.
- Dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth and are designed to blend in with your other teeth. They are an excellent long-term option for restoring your smile. In fact, the development and use of implants is one of the biggest advances in dentistry in the past 40 years. Dr. Mason restores dental implants with crowns, bridges, and complete or partial dentures. She will work closely with your periodontist or oral surgeon to create the most aesthetic and functional restorations.
