Crowns and Bridges

Do you have a chipped tooth that is visible every time you smile? Does a fractured or broken tooth affect your bite and what you can eat? Chipped, broken, damaged, or missing teeth can impact many areas of your life. At Topeka Dentistry, our dental crowns and bridges can repair injured teeth and give you back your beautiful smile. 
 
Our Topeka, KS dental office offers many dental procedures that can bring your smile back to life, no matter what your dental problem might be. 
 
We are dedicated to providing our patients with high-quality oral health care that is specialized to their unique needs. Dr. Ben Rutherford and Dr. Carrie Peterson have years of training and experience in dental restorative procedures. Our finely crafted dental crowns and bridges bring back your ability to bite and speak and look so natural that no one will ever notice. 
 
If you have a cavity that is too large to be repaired with a filling, dental crowns can fit over the tooth to preserve and protect it. Dental crowns and bridges in Topeka, KS are dental treatments that address two separate dental health issues. At Topeka Dentistry, our patients can rely on our honest and genuine care along with our comfortable atmosphere. We craft attractive dental crowns and bridges to enhance our patient’s smiles. 

What Is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown fits right over the tooth like a cap to protect it and to restore any lost tooth structure. Patients don’t have to chew gingerly or avoid putting pressure on an entire side; our dental prosthetics can restore functionality. Dental crowns can be made from various materials, including composite resin, porcelain, ceramic, and more. 
 
If a tooth undergoes damage from severe decay, a crack from an unexpected injury or from grinding teeth, or a large cavity, we can utilize tooth crowns to benefit our patients through restored function, support, and comfort. 
 
Our Topeka restorative dentists carefully craft and design every dental crown to fit perfectly over your tooth. With proper care, your dental crown can last a lifetime. The dental material used mimics natural enamel down to translucency and finely detailed ridges and grooves.  

Dental Bridges Can Replace Missing Teeth

Missing one or multiple teeth can impact what you can eat, how you speak, how you appear, and even how you view yourself. At Topeka Dentistry, we offer many different procedures that can restore a missing tooth.
 
One of our more popular treatments is dental bridges. The process involves securing two dental crowns on either side of the gap, and “bridging” the gap with a third dental crown.
 
The entire procedure will likely take two dental visits and can last for many years with proper maintenance. Tooth bridges may require special care to keep them healthy and strong.

Some benefits of dental bridges include:

  • Prevents teeth from shifting
  • Prevents exposed tooth roots
  • Relieves pressure during chewing and biting
  • Prevents tooth decay 
  • Enhances your smile
  • Restores smile and bite function
