Dental Crowns and Bridges in Birmingham, AL

If you have chipped, cracked, or broken teeth, our dental team at Hall Cosmetic & Family Dentistry in Birmingham, AL, can help you restore the functionality and appearance of your smile with dental bridges and crowns. Our skilled team is proficient in these restorative treatments and has an artistic eye for producing aesthetically pleasing results while restoring the function of your teeth. We use porcelain or ceramic materials to create your new restoration, blending in seamlessly with your existing teeth and providing the strength necessary for comfortable biting and chewing.

Dental crowns are fixed caps covering damaged or decayed teeth to restore strength and beauty. When the tooth cannot be treated with bonding or composite fillings, we recommend using a dental crown. Similarly, we can use a dental crown to preserve a tooth after root canal therapy or to restore a permanent dental implant.

A dental bridge is an excellent alternative if you have lost a tooth and are not yet ready for a dental implant. Dental bridges are crowns that span the gap created by a lost or extracted tooth. We take impressions of the area to ensure a comfortable and seamless fit, which our experienced technicians at our partner dental lab will handcraft for you.

  • What is a dental crown?

    Dental crowns are commonly used to restore the functionality and appearance of damaged teeth, those that have undergone root canal therapy, or those that have been injured for cosmetic reasons. They have multiple applications, such as capping a damaged tooth to restore it to normal functioning or attaching it to dental implants to replace lost teeth. These implants are surgically inserted into the jawbone and act as the root for the crown. Dental crowns can also provide extra support for dental bridges, and they do not require any special treatment; they can be brushed and flossed like your natural teeth.

  • What is a dental bridge?

    Dental bridges are a standard solution for patients who have lost one or more teeth. They get their name because they consist of one or more replacement teeth that “bridge” the gap created by missing teeth. Dental bridges can be secured using abutment crowns on each end or permanently installed precision metal mechanisms. At Barrhaven Dental Studio, we take great care in custom designing each component of a dental bridge so that it looks natural and performs as desired.

  • How do temporary dental crowns work?

    To create an accurate dental crown, your dentist must shape the tooth base beneath it. However, this can leave your tooth vulnerable between creating the impression and delivering the crown. Your dentist will provide a temporary dental crown to protect your tooth. When you return for your fitting appointment, the temporary crown will be removed, and the permanent crown or bridge will be fitted onto the shaped base.
