Restoring a Healthy Smile
Benefits of Restorations
Missing and damaged teeth not only affect the appearance of your smile, but your functionality in everyday life, too. It’s important to address gaps from missing teeth and cracks or other damage to prevent them from causing further problems later on. Drs. Chipps and Risse are skilled at providing beautiful, strong restorations for a return to a healthy, natural-looking smile.
Bridging the Gap
If you’ve lost one or more teeth and have a gap, a dental bridge may be the best solution for you. We secure the bridge on either side using crowns attached to the remaining teeth. Our bridges are made with high-quality materials for security and appearance, so the bridge blends well with your other teeth. You can be confident in your full smile!
A Crown Restores a Damaged Tooth
Individual crowns are sometimes necessary to save a broken or worn-down tooth when a simple filling will not restore it to full functionality. By surrounding and supporting the healthy tooth structure, a dental crown will save and even add strength to the damaged tooth. We use the most advanced materials to make your crown. It will look so natural, you won’t be able to distinguish it from a real tooth.
We are pleased to offer crowns made with CEREC™, a highly precise computer milling machine that makes crowns right in the office, in about an hour. No more temporaries, additional visits, or crowns that don’t seem to fit right. These modern restorations dramatically reduce cracking, lowering the likelihood of needing future root canal treatment. Due to the custom design and precise fit, CEREC restorations are bonded to the tooth with the optimum strength available. If you have ever had a crown placed the traditional way, we are sure you will notice the difference!
