Rowley Crown & Bridge Care Can Rebuild Your Smile
Damaged teeth, badly decayed teeth, and missing teeth can all have adverse effects on your oral health and happiness. That’s why Dr. J. Peter St. Clair and the rest of our team want to help you restore your smile as soon as possible. Our crown and bridge options are designed to rebuild and strengthen teeth in lifelike ways giving you back as much of their original function as possible. Patients from Topsfield and surrounding areas are welcome to contact us today to schedule their first appointment.
When the size of a filling required exceeds a certain size or structural ability to support the tooth, it may require a crown (cap). There are many different types of materials used for these restorations. Dr. St. Clair always uses the materials that he feels will give the best-looking and longest-lasting result. He welcomes discussion of these materials for your particular situation if you have interest. We use only the highest quality – American – dental labs. There is a difference. See below for before and after photos of crowns done by Dr. St. Clair.
A bridge is a fixed (non-removable) restoration used to replace one or multiple teeth. This is not to be confused with a partial denture which is removable. A bridge is attached with crowns on teeth adjacent to spaces and is dependent on the health and longevity of the teeth to which it is attached. Bridges are not done as much anymore because of dental implants but are still used in some situations.
