How do crowns and bridges work?

At Pallotto Dental Care, we want you to have a beautiful smile and healthy teeth. This is why we recommend dental crowns and bridges in Lansing, IL—a practical and affordable solution to tooth damage and loss.

If you have missing or damaged teeth, it can influence your self-esteem, change the way you eat, and even put your healthy teeth in jeopardy.

When a tooth is damaged or weak, it is vulnerable to breakage and infection.

When teeth are missing, your diet is limited to foods that are easy to chew. Additionally, missing teeth cause existing teeth to shift. This leads to erosion as your bite changes.  Erosion puts you at risk for cavities and dental infections.

If you have a damaged tooth due to trauma or a failed root canal, our top Lansing, IL dentist recommends a dental crown to restore your tooth and keep it strong. A  Dental crown fits over a damaged or week tooth, and it is colored and shaped to blend in with your teeth.

If you have missing teeth, a bridge and crowns solution is a great way to restore appearance and function. A dental bridge means a natural-looking replacement tooth is suspended between two dental crowns. These crowns fit over adjacent teeth and the replacement tooth fills the space where your tooth is missing.
