Crowns & Bridges in Omaha, NE

If you have teeth that are missing or damaged as a result of decay, injury, or other reasons, you may be a candidate for a crown or bridge. A dental crown is a cap that fits over an existing tooth to improve its overall appearance, shape, size, and strength while fitting in seamlessly with your smile. Bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth in a row by “bridging” the gap with one or more prosthetic teeth. 

At Homan Family Dentistry, we design natural-looking and durable crowns and bridges to completely restore your smile and oral functions. Our dentist can help you choose the right options for your unique needs.

Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” cemented over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. Dental crowns can be made from various materials, including porcelain, metal alloys, or a combination of materials. 

Porcelain dental crowns can perfectly match the color of your natural teeth and resist staining better than other materials. Metal alloy crowns are preferred for their strength, as they can endure more force or pressure, while zirconia crowns are ideal for patients who want the most natural-looking restoration possible.

The Benefits of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are used to treat a broken or damaged tooth, hide cosmetic flaws like stained, chipped, cracked, misshapen, or crooked teeth, replace a large filling when there is not enough remaining healthy tooth structure to retain it, hold a bridge in place, or cover an implant. 

Our dentist will most likely recommend a crown if you have a cavity that has reached the pulp of your tooth because root canal treatment requires removing a large amount of the tooth’s structure. In this case, the restored tooth will be significantly weaker without a protective covering and will need extra support to prevent breaking in the future.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are restorative devices that can be attached to one or more teeth, replacing a missing tooth or teeth. The name “bridge” refers to the fact that the prosthetic spans across the space where the teeth are missing. 

The bridge is held in place by crowns placed on the adjacent natural teeth. These adjacent teeth are capped to serve as abutments supporting the dental bridge. The crowns are matched to the color of your natural teeth so that the bridge looks and feels natural.

The Benefits of Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are long-lasting restorations that can provide aesthetic and functional improvements to your smile. They also prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of place and causing malocclusions. This improves the appearance of your smile and your ability to speak and eat normally. You can benefit from a dental bridge if you are missing more than one tooth in a row.

Crowns and bridges are beneficial options for patients looking to restore and improve the appearance and function of their smiles. For the best dental care tailored to your unique needs, visit Homan Family Dentistry at 11840 NICHOLAS ST., STE. 210, Omaha, NE 68154, or call (402) 498-0400.
