Crowns & Bridges
You’ve spent a lifetime smiling, laughing, and even shedding a few tears along the way. You don’t mind the little facial lines that are creeping up, but you could definitely live without the wear and tear that a life well-lived has had on your teeth.
At. Baller Dental & Orthodontics at Southlands, Dr. Holly Baller offers aesthetic dental crowns and bridges for Aurora patients dealing with broken, decayed, or missing teeth. Dr. Baller is an experienced dentist with a keen eye for artistry, and the dental restorations she designs will look beautifully natural and provide years of comfortable function.
Dental Crowns Restore Function and Beauty
When you have tooth damage, we choose the most conservative treatment options first. Depending on the type of damage, we might recommend a tooth-colored filling; however, our Aurora dentist would recommend a dental crown if too much tooth structure is involved.
Some typical reasons Dr. Baller recommends crowns are to:
- Protect a tooth weakened by decay
- Strengthen a cracked, worn, or broken tooth
- Support a tooth that already has a large filling
- Conceal misshapen or severely discolored teeth
- Hold a dental bridge in place
- Restore function and appearance to a dental implant
- Create a more aesthetically-pleasing appearance
Bridges Replace Missing Teeth
Anyone can lose a tooth; it could be the result of advanced gum disease or a mountain biking accident where a tooth gets knocked out. Our focus at Baller Dental & Orthodontics at Southlands in Aurora is finding solutions for problems like missing teeth, and she commonly recommends a dental bridge to do the job.
A bridge is an ideal solution when you have one or two teeth missing from the same spot in your mouth. The restoration spans the gap left by a missing tooth, placing an artificial tooth in the space and securing it to adjacent teeth with dental crowns.
Crafting Your New Crown or Bridge
Besides her love of working with people, Dr. Holly chose dentistry because she has a tremendous passion for design and artistry. When she combines it with her love of science, the result is beautiful crowns and bridges every time.
She also appreciates modern technology like digital impressions that enhance her patients’ experiences at the dental office. Forget about the dreaded goopy impressions you have had in the past; today, the process is as easy as taking digital images of your mouth.
This method is far more comfortable for you and produces a 3-D digital model that helps Dr. Baller deliver stunning, realistic results every time.
We send your impressions and custom shade selection to a top dental lab where skilled technicians painstakingly craft your crown or bridge. In about 2-3 weeks, when you return to our Aurora dental office, our dentist will adjust it for fit, polish it, and cement it securely in place.
Smile with Confidence, and Enjoy Life to the Fullest!
If you have broken or missing teeth that make it hard to chew comfortably and smile confidently, Dr. Baller and her team would love to help you. Please call our Aurora dental office and schedule an appointment so we can help you!
