Crowns & Bridges
It’s hard to believe the impact that even one missing or damaged tooth can have on your life.
Eating all the foods you love may be more difficult or impossible. Your speech may also be affected. Your self-confidence starts to fade because you just don't feel like smiling openly when socializing.
At Clark Dental Studio, we understand the frustration of having to deal with damaged teeth because you just don't have time in your busy life to deal with one more problem. Fortunately, we offer options that will get your smile back in shape in no time.
Restore Unhealthy Teeth with Crowns
If you’re looking for an effective, time-tested solution for correcting dental problems caused by disease, routine wear and tear, or accidents, a dental crown may be the answer.
Older fillings on your front teeth may cause cosmetic problems like discoloration. An old filling can also weaken the tooth and cause it to chip or break.
Dental crowns allow us to create a restoration that can resolve a variety of problems:
- Reinforce and protect teeth damaged by disease, trauma, or decay
- Fix functional problems like an uneven dental bite
- Conceal esthetic flaws like wide gaps between teeth
- Replace a missing tooth (dental implant restoration)
- Protect a tooth after root canal treatment
At Clark Dental Studio, we choose to use natural-looking porcelain crowns. Metal-lined porcelain crowns are also effective, but over time, a thin dark line can appear above the tooth, detracting from your appearance. Our durable porcelain crowns are just as effective and can be created to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth.
Replace Missing Teeth with Fixed Bridges
Fixed dental bridges are restorations that consist of an artificial tooth (pontic) and fill the empty space left after the loss of a natural tooth. Bridges are designed as a single unit that includes the artificial tooth and held securely in place by crowns attached to neighboring teeth.
To create a customized bridge for you, we start by preparing the teeth where the bridge will be attached. Next, we'll take accurate digital impressions to form a mold of your tooth. This information is sent on to a respected dental lab where your restoration is crafted. A couple weeks later, you'll return to our Chattanooga office, and we'll adjust the bridge to ensure a perfect fit and a fully functioning tooth.
