Dental crowns have been utilized to strengthen broken-down teeth for many years. Technologies continue to improve creating greater esthetics while still achieving long lasting results. Crowns are used for many different reasons: strengthen teeth that are structurally weak, restore broken teeth, stop decay progression in significantly decayed teeth, and improve overall esthetics. Â At Allen Dental, the Idaho Falls Dentist office of choice, we utilize the very best and most natural looking materials to create every crown. Whether we are working to restore a tooth in the front or a tooth in the back we want the result to look natural and beautiful. Nearly all crowns completed in our office are fabricated from all ceramic materials giving them the very best ability to look natural.
Dental bridges are one of the many predicable ways to replace missing teeth. A bridge utilizes two or more teeth to support a false tooth over a space of a missing tooth. A bridge is cemented over the two or more teeth that support it and create a look of no missing teeth. Bridges have been the standard of care for permanently replacing missing teeth for many years. Now with dental implants there are not as many needs for dental bridges, yet they still are very durable and valuable restorations when indicated.
