There are several different ways to replace a missing tooth and each option has its own advantages. In many cases, dental implants are considered the best long-term option however, they may not be right for every situation. In some cases, a dental bridge, partial denture or other option may be more suitable for the patient.

When you have a tooth that is damaged or missing, you need a reliable tooth restoration solution. We are pleased to offer dental crowns and bridges at our Glenview, IL practice.

Dental Crowns in Glenview

Dental crowns are frequently used to strengthen a molar in the back of the mouth that might be compromised because of a large filling. When large fillings get older, the tooth structure that remains is subject to fracture. Amalgam, or metal, fillings in particular make teeth prone to weakening after a number of years. Because so much of the tooth structure has already been drilled away to make room for the original filling, there isn’t enough left to replace the filling. A dental crown is usually the best option.

Missing Tooth Replacement

If you have a missing tooth, it’s essential to fill in the space left behind. When you don’t, you risk the health of your remaining teeth because they can start to shift in order to fill in the gap. This throws off your bite, which can make chewing a challenge and lead to a host of other problems.

Dental Bridge

A dental bridge literally bridges the gap between two teeth. It is a prosthetic tooth that attaches to the teeth at either side of the space in your mouth, keeping your other teeth from moving. Chewing becomes natural again, and you won’t have to be self-conscious about a gap in your smile.
