Crowns and Bridges
Dentist Grayslake, IL
When more than 50% of the tooth structure is lost due to decay or dental procedures like root canal therapy, it is usually recommended to reinforce its structure with a crown (commonly known as a cap). A well prepared crown can replace the missing structure and increase the longevity of the tooth.
There are many different types of crowns and bridges. Recently with the introduction of white metals like Zirconia, the cosmetic aspect of the crowns has significantly improved without compromising the integrity and strength. At Four Lakes Dental, your Grayslake dentist will provide you with different options of temporary and permanent crowns and work with your individual need and budget to find the best solution for your oral care.
Dental Bridges have traditionally been an effective way of replacing the missing teeth. In many cases, bridges are still a viable and useful treatment. Bridges not only can replace the missing teeth, but can also reinforce the structure of the abutment teeth.
There are other treatment options to replace a missing tooth such as dental implants or dentures, each of which has its own benefits. We will work with you, your insurance and your budget to find the best solution for your need.
