Sometimes, physical trauma or disease damages a tooth beyond repair. Keeping a damaged tooth in your mouth can be both painful and dangerous for your other teeth, as infections can spread. The team at Dentistry of Nashville is happy to fit patients with crowns and bridges to replace severely damaged or missing teeth, restoring both health and beauty to your smile.
Dental Crowns in Nashville, TN
A dental crown is an artificial “cap” designed to fit over an existing tooth. While they don’t replace the entire tooth, they do restore shape and function to your smile. The crown is dense, durable, and will allow you to chew with confidence.
Dentistry of Nashville proudly uses CEREC, a revolutionary technology that allows us to make your dental crowns in a day.
When you come into our office for a crown, we will take a scan of your mouth and then send it to the CEREC milling unit. Within an hour, you will have a perfectly fitted, durable new crown that will esthetically repair your gapped or damaged smile.
That’s right—it only takes one visit to Dentistry of Nashville to have your crown made and placed!
Where crowns are used to repair damaged teeth, the team at Dentistry of Nashville uses bridges to replace ones that are completely missing. As the name suggests, a dental bridge is a device that literally bridges the gap made by your missing teeth. Bridges are made up of three crowns. The outer two crowns fit over existing teeth in order to fully support the middle tooth, which is the replacement.
- Restore chewing and speaking functionality
- Prevent your neighboring teeth from shifting
- Give you the confidence to smile again without a gap
