Traditional Crown & Bridge
No one should have to struggle with teeth that are badly decayed, structurally injured, or even missing altogether.
Instead, turn to Lakeland Family Dental in Oconomowoc for the supportive, experienced care you need. With the help of our crown and bridge services, Dr. Eric Ruiz and Dr. Samantha Ruiz can revitalize these areas with high-quality replacements that blend in seamlessly, giving you back a smile that’s full, strong, and beautiful.
Sometimes, the damage a tooth weathers can’t be fixed completely by a filling. Fortunately, dental crowns offer patients versatility by treating a wide variety of issues, including severe cavities, cracked enamel, and even purely cosmetic flaws.
A crown is a restoration that fits over the top of your natural tooth structure, all the way down to the gum, kind of like a hat fits on your head You might have also heard them referred to as "caps." To prepare your tooth for the crown, we will carefully shape the tooth, removing the damaged portions and leaving room for the new crown to fit over the top of the tooth
Using detailed bite impressions, Dr. Ruiz or Dr. Sam will work closely with a trusted dental lab to create the ideal crown for your smile. Our crowns are made with advanced dental materials which are metal free for an improved aesthetic result, without having to compromise strength & longevity of the crown. Your crown will be made of high-quality materials and painstakingly crafted - each and every one is completely custom made only for you! Once it’s placed, it’ll be nearly impossible to distinguish it from the real thing!
If you’ve lost one or more teeth in a row, a dental bridge may be the optimal choice for restoring much-needed strength and esthetic value to your smile. Created from fused-together dental crowns, your new bridge will be positioned securely and comfortably within the open gap, and additional crowns will then be fitted over adjacent healthy teeth as anchors. The result will look and feel completely natural, giving you back the confidence you need to share your smile.
Repairing and Replacing Teeth
It's important to repair and replace damaged and missing teeth for a variety of reasons. Damaged teeth make it difficult for you to enjoy fresh, crunchy, nutritious food and can often cause pain and sensitivity.
Missing teeth often lead to further tooth loss. The neighboring teeth are likely to shift toward the open space, which knocks your teeth out of alignment and affecting the way your teeth come together (your occlusion). This can lead to a range of other problems, including excess wear, fracture, pain in your jaw joints, and sore muscles.
