Let our Sun Prairie, WI, dentist treat your tooth loss or damaged smile right away.

Whether our Sun Prairie, WI, dentist Dr. Peter Lotowski just recently told you that your smile could benefit from a dental crown or bridge, or you are doing research to find out how to improve the health and appearance of your smile, you’ve come to the right place. Countless people have been able to restore damaged or missing teeth with the help of crowns and bridges and you can too.

 

If you have cracked, broken or discolored teeth…

Then the best option will be to get a dental crown. In most cases, the purpose of a dental crown is restorative in nature. This means that it’s often placed over a tooth that has been weakened or damaged and isn’t as strong as it once was. Once the crown is placed over the tooth it will restore and preserve the rest of the tooth.

A dental crown may be placed if the tooth:

  • Is cracked, broken, or fractured
  • Is weak from an infection, decay, or traumatic injury
  • Is severely decayed (when a dental filling won’t be able to fully support the tooth)
  • Has undergone root canal therapy
  • Is malformed, misshapen, or severely discolored

If you are dealing with any of the issues above, it’s important that you visit your restorative dentist in Sun Prairie, WI, right away to find out how a dental crown could restore and protect your natural smile.

 

If you are missing a tooth…

Then a dental bridge may be the easiest solution for getting your full smile back. A dental bridge spans the gap where your missing tooth is and fills it with a false tooth. In order for the false tooth to stay in place, we will need to place dental crowns on either end of the gap. From there, a false tooth will be connected between the crowns to hold the tooth in place.
