Dental crowns in Hixson, TN, are versatile restorations, used to restore appearance and function to damaged teeth or dental implants. When you are in need of a dental crown, we will gently reshape your existing tooth so there is adequate space for the new restoration. Using our intraoral camera, we can take digital images of the inside of your mouth to help with the construction of your new crown. Dr. Johnson will design your dental crown to fit your bite and give it the appearance of a natural tooth. We utilize a trusted dental lab to create your crown and typically will have your restoration back in as little as two weeks. When placing your final crown on your tooth, we will ensure it is color matched to your smile so it blends in seamlessly. Once placed, you will be able to use your tooth like normal again.
A dental bridge is a collection of crowns used to span the gap of a missing tooth or several missing teeth. The purpose of a dental bridge is to restore biting and chewing function, enhance the attractiveness of your smile and to prevent surrounding teeth from shifting into the empty space. Similar to creating a dental crown, we will take digital impressions of your mouth using an intraoral scanner and x-rays. Dr. Johnson will then design the restoration to match your bite and tooth color. Patients typically enjoy the enhanced ability to eat more foods, speak properly and have a higher self-confidence after restoring their smile with a dental bridge.
