Conveniently located near Piney Chapel, AL, Dr. Fitts and his staff at East Limestone Family Dental offers crowns and bridges for all our patients. If you have absent or decayed teeth in need of long-lasting assistance, we will reverse the issue with only a few easy visits. Bridges and crowns for teeth sit on top of your natural teeth to work like functioning, natural-looking replacements to make smiling, eating and speaking easier.
A crown, or cap, tops the whole tooth surface, restoring it to the tooth’s natural shape and size. A crown guards and strengthens the foundation of your teeth in a way that cannot be restored with fillings or other restoration procedures.
Crowns can be composed of ceramic, metal or resin, but porcelain, natural-colored crowns are the most popular. Crowns stay strong for many years, but like all dental restorations, they may need replacing eventually. Porcelain crowns are formed to blend into the rest of your other teeth to leave you with a long-lasting smile. The good news is getting a new crown is quick and relatively painless.
