Dental Crowns & Bridges
For patients with decay, damage, or discoloration to one or multiple teeth, dental crowns can be a great solution. A tooth crown is a cap that can be created using various materials depending upon the patient’s need. At Happy Smiles Dental, we offer porcelain crowns, zirconia crowns, and even metal crowns. We can match your crown to your natural tooth so that it blends with your existing smile.
Fixed Dental Bridge
For patients that want a more secure and stable option for their missing teeth, a fixed dental bridge is a perfect option. They can be used to replace one or more missing teeth but must be supported by either natural teeth or dental implants. The bridge will then be attached to the adjacent teeth to provide support and stability, improving the appearance and functionality of your smile.
Dental implants are composed of three pieces: a small screw made of a biocompatible metal called titanium, an abutment which connects the screw and the final restoration, and the final restoration. The screw, which is placed in the jawbone, acts as a replacement for the tooth root, providing a strong foundation for fixed or removable replacement teeth. The screw begins to fuse with the bone over the course of a few months. After the fusing process, known as osseointegration, the abutment is inserted into the screw to allow for the permanent attachment of the restoration.
