Damaged or missing teeth can be uncomfortable and leave you hesitant to show your smile, in addition to affecting your oral health. For your healthiest and most attractive smile, repairing the damage is essential. Dr. Rosanne Palmero in Erie, PA, offers crowns and bridges to restore your teeth quickly and effectively.

What are bridges?

Dental bridges are replacements for a tooth that has fallen out or requires removal due to damage or decay. A bridge fills the gap using an artificial tooth, which is bonded to the teeth on either side so it is durable and permanently in place.

What are crowns?

Crowns are used to repair a tooth that is still in place but has noticeable flaws, such as chips, cracks, a cavity that can't be filled, severe discoloration, or protrusions. A crown is custom-made to fit over your tooth to conceal the damage. Once cemented on, it becomes strong and permanent.

What are the benefits of bridges and crowns?

Crowns and bridges from our Erie, PA, office improve the health and look of your mouth and restore the function. The gap from a missing tooth or a damaged tooth can be prone to bacterial growth, which can cause decay and damage to the gums and other teeth. It can be uncomfortable or even painful to bite and chew with a void or damaged tooth, but repairing the issue renews your ability to eat and brush properly and easily.

Of course, these implements also offer cosmetic benefits, making your smile look complete, healthy, and beautiful. they are even undetectable so no one will notice the repairs.
