Crowns & Bridges in Orland Park, IL
At Orland Oaks Dental, we understand how damaged or missing teeth can dramatically change your life. Having an incomplete smile may make you feel self-conscious. Eating your favorite foods can be a challenge, and your speech may even be affected.
Dr. Walczak and Dr. Stanford have 40 years of combined experience in placing esthetic crowns and bridges that are extremely durable and natural-looking. Our first objective is to create a restoration that is FAVORABLE WITH oral health and restores function, but we don't stop there. Our focus is on results, and our goal is for your dental work to look so natural that no one will ever know you’ve had anything done!
What Are Some Uses for Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns are designed to protect damaged teeth or teeth with large fillings that are at high risk for cracking. Crowns are essentially a “cap” that is placed over the tooth to protect it and restore normal function. But our crowns look so natural we can also use them to correct esthetic problems.
A few cases where we would suggest a dental crown are:
- Providing support and protection for a tooth weakened by root canal treatment
- Strengthening a tooth with a large filling that may be prone to cracking
- Improving the esthetics of a tooth that’s badly chipped, broken, or severely discolored
Our goal is to protect your overall oral health while improving the esthetics of your smile. That is why we choose only the highest quality materials for all our dental crowns. With proper care and routine visits for exams and cleanings, you can expect our well-made crowns to last for years to come!
When Would I Need a Dental Bridge?
Bridges are used to replace a missing tooth when it is surrounded by healthy teeth on both sides. A bridge usually consists of two crowns that are attached to adjacent teeth, with an artificial tooth that is suspended between them. We can also use dental implants instead of a bridge to support the artificial tooth replacement.
Filling the empty space left by a missing tooth isn’t just an esthetic improvement. When a tooth is missing, neighboring teeth gradually drift into the space to fill the void. This can lead to crowding, resulting in misaligned teeth that can put you at greater risk for developing gum disease.
