Two of the most common treatments for replacing and restoring missing or damaged teeth are dental crowns and bridges. When you visit Enfield Family Dental, Dr. Wilford Samson will carefully evaluate your mouth to determine if these treatments will be beneficial to you. We invite you to call us at 860-749-2225 to schedule your consultation with our experienced dentist and learn more about dental crowns and bridges in Enfield, Connecticut.
Dental crowns, or caps, are a treatment designed to restore the strength, functionality, and appearance of teeth that have been damaged by decay or disease or which have been broken. They are custom-made to fit your smile, and they cover the entire visible portion of the tooth to prevent further damage. Crowns provide long-lasting and beautiful results.
Dental bridges are often recommended to replace a missing tooth, or several missing teeth in a row. They literally “bridge” the gap caused by your missing teeth, restoring a healthy bite and preventing your remaining teeth from shifting out of place. Dental bridges are usually anchored into place by crowns attached to the teeth on either side of the bridge, though they may also be supported by an implant as well.
