Don‘t let damaged or missing teeth keep you from the smile you used to have.

Restorative dentistry has been giving people back a beautiful smile and it could do the same for you. If you are suffering from damaged crowns and bridgesor missing teeth, it’s time you found out whether you could benefit from getting dental crowns and bridges from our Andover, MA dentist, Dr. Richard Hopgood.

What are dental crowns?

This tooth-shaped hollow cap is designed to cover over a tooth to protect it from further damage, decay, etc. In essence, the crown becomes the outer protective layer of the tooth and is designed to rebuild the tooth so it’s stronger and more attractive. Our Andover general dentist will often recommend a dental crown when:

  • A tooth is cracked
  • A tooth is severely malformed or misshapen
  • A tooth has undergone root canal therapy
  • You need to cover a dental implant

What are dental bridges?

A dental bridge is designed to fill the gap where one or more missing teeth were. A bridge consists of two dental crowns on either side that cover over natural neighboring teeth to anchor the false teeth in the middle into place. While dental bridges are often anchored into place by natural teeth, they can also be supported by dental implants.

What are the benefits of these dental restorations?

As you may already be able to guess, there are many benefits to choosing to get dental crowns and bridges in Andover, including:

  • A restored smile
  • Chewing and speaking are also restored
  • Preventing teeth from shifting out of place
  • Maintaining your face’s natural shape
  • Preventing further damage or deterioration
  • An improved appearance
