Dental crowns and bridges are a popular choice to repair or replace damaged teeth that cannot be treated with a dental filling, inlay, or onlay. Dr. James N. Aldridge Jr. proudly offers a full range of restorative materials, including porcelain, composite resin, and metal, allowing your dental restoration to be fully customized to fit your needs and preferences.
Our dentist may recommend a dental crown or bridge to treat conditions such as:
- Tooth decay
- Dental injury
- Misshapen teeth
- Tooth loss
- Worn-down teeth
A dental crown is fitted over a natural tooth or a dental implant post to strengthen and enhance the tooth. It is custom made to match the size, shape, and—if desired—color of your surrounding teeth. Dental crowns are typically recommended for teeth that are too worn-down, decayed, or broken to accommodate a dental implant. Dr. James N. Aldridge Jr. can also provide a crown to cover a misshapen or stained tooth.
A dental bridge is what its name implies—it spans the gap left by missing teeth to restore strength, function, and comfort to your smile. Dental bridges are three or more crowns welded together, and the crowns at each end are fixed onto the surrounding teeth for support. The dental bridge can also be attached to dental implant posts for a permanent restoration.
We invite you to contact our office at 304-523-3666 and schedule an appointment if you are considering receiving a dental crown or bridge in Huntington, West Virginia.
