Benefits of Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a cover or “cap ” that restores the tooth to its normal shape, size and function. It protects the tooth, making it stronger and improving the way it looks. At Pine Park Family Dentistry, we offer dental crowns to provide essential protection and coverage for damaged teeth. This is both for your oral health and for the overall appearance of your smile. A dental crown is carefully fitted over the damaged tooth to reduce more damage to the tooth after the procedure has been completed. After the crown is in place, you shouldn’t notice anything different about the way that you smile, chew, talk, or even play a musical instrument.

Dentures and Partial Dentures

Dentures are appliances that restore one or more missing teeth. They can be partially fixed or removable, by receiving support form underlying bone and tissue, and some for remaining teeth. Full dentures are devices that replace all dentition of upper and lower jaw.

What are the advantages for partials or dentures?

• They can help you chew your food better.

• Your cheeks and lips can be supported and your face does not sag.

• Helps speak better and improves pronunciation in most cases when front teeth are missing.

• Prevents remaining teeth to shift or move into the space of missing tooth.

We recommend to come for an initial exam and cleaning to assess remaining dentition to determine if teeth need restorative treatment such as fillings or crowns before fabrication of partials or dentures. The procedure of dentures involves impressions of your upper and lower teeth or jaws and following appointments, to restore the appearance, function, and phonetics.

Dental Bridges and More

Pine Park Family Dentistry serves patients in Bemidji, Brainerd, Detroit Lakes, Menahga, Park Rapids, Sebeka, Wadena, Walker, and many other surrounding MN communities. In addition to dental crowns, we also offer bridges, which are artificial teeth that “bridge” the gap left by a missing tooth, or large sections of missing teeth structure. These partial dentures keep your existing teeth from crowding or spreading apart and allow you to chew food and talk more easily. Additionally, the bridge covers the space from the missing tooth without the need for any invasive implant procedures.
