Do you have a decayed, damaged, or missing tooth in need of restorative care? At ARK Family Dentistry, we offer two restorative services that strengthen and renew your smile—crowns and bridges. During a consultation, Dr. Kovach carefully assesses your needs and helps you create a personalized treatment plan. A tooth can often be repaired or replaced with a custom-made restoration in as few as two appointments.
Call our Aledo dental office today if you’d like to learn more about these two great options or you’d like to reserve an appointment with Dr. Kovach.
A dental crown is a restoration designed to strengthen and protect a tooth affected by decay or an injury. Crowns can be made from a variety of materials, including gold, but because of the natural appearance, the most popular is made from porcelain.
Dr. Kovach will design your crown, prep your tooth, and attach a temporary crown during your first appointment. When your restoration is ready, you’ll return to our Aledo office to have it permanently attached.
While crowns are designed to repair broken or decayed teeth, bridges are used for filling in the gaps in a patient’s smile. They’re composed of a replacement tooth plus abutment crowns. These abutment crowns are placed over healthy teeth on each side of the gap you need to fill, and have the important job of stabilizing the entire restoration. Once in place, your bridge becomes a permanent part of your smile, allowing you to enjoy a renewed sense of confidence.
In addition to offering traditional crowns and bridges, Dr. Kovach also offers dental implants. With implants, it’s possible to enjoy results that not only look more natural but feel more natural too. Give us a call to learn more about all of our restorative options.
