Dental Crowns Explained
A dental crown can be used to protect and strengthen a damaged tooth or to restore a dental implant. Dr. Eccles exclusively uses porcelain dental crowns for a natural look.
When used on one of your natural teeth, a dental crown completely caps the tooth structure with a custom-shaped restoration indistinguishable from a healthy-looking tooth. In the case of dental implants, a porcelain crown is secured to the implant for a strong, permanent replacement.
In either case, your dental crown will look and function great.
Dental Bridges Explained
Dental bridges bridge the gap left by missing teeth. Plainfield, Indiana dentist Dr. Eccles offers all three types of dental bridges so you can get the restorative treatments you need no matter your situation.
Traditional dental bridges use dental crowns that are placed on the teeth on either side of a missing tooth. A solid “false” crown is attached to these dental crowns to replace your missing tooth.
Cantilever dental bridges work similarly to traditional bridges, but they do not require support from teeth on both sides. Instead, they use dental crowns on one more teeth on one side of a missing tooth to hold a false crown.
