If you have lost one or several of your natural teeth, you might want to consider dental crowns or bridges. They are the two most convenient ways of restoring missing teeth.
During the second visit, the dentist fixes the crown or the bridge in place.
A dental crown is a cap or a cover fixed over a damaged tooth or on top of a dental implant to replace a missing tooth. Crowns restore the tooth’s original size, shape, and function and are long-lasting and sturdy.
Crowns are typically used to restore teeth affected by severe cavities, cracked or worn-down teeth, following a root canal treatment, or badly shaped or discolored teeth.
Different materials can be used for making crowns. These include ceramic, metal alloys, metal fused to porcelain, or composite resin.
A dental bridge is made up of one or several false teeth supported by crowns placed on the existing teeth on either side of the gap left by the missing tooth. These artificial teeth are known as pontics and are made of alloys, porcelain, gold, or a combination of metal and porcelain.

Well, There are not enough words to describe how wonderful everyone has been to me! I feel very blessed to have found you and to have you for my dentist! Thank You Again Dr.Wood and Staff! You’re the Best In Every Way!!!
Met Dr Wood for first time yesterday and was very pleasantly surprised; she is sensitive, supportive, gentle and kind. I’m actually looking forward to a dental procedure and that is a first for me. Dental hygienist, Li , is excellent, I’m actually relaxed in her chair.
Dr. Wood is amazing, patient and cares about her work. Had to get fillings done and she took her time and made the experience enjoyable while giving me confidence that my teeth were being worked on by a professional thru her actions. I would recommend anyone see her if they need dental work done.
