Crowns and dental bridges done the Wright way can really restore your smile
At Wright Dentures & Dental Care, we help restore your smile using dental crowns and bridges made from the most technologically advanced materials to match the strength and appearance of your natural teeth.
Dental Crowns (or dental "cap")
A crown is a dental restoration that encases the entire tooth surface, restoring it to its original shape and size, while protecting and strengthening tooth structure that cannot be repaired with other types of restorations. We use crowns to cover damaged (cracked or chipped teeth), or to protect teeth that have had previous fillings and need extra structural support. Crowns are carefully made to cover the portion of teeth exposed starting from the gum line all the way to the tooth surface. Our dentists can also precisely match the color of your other teeth to give this kind of restoration the most natural look and feel.
Fixed Dental Bridges
Bridge the gap created by a missing tooth. This fixed/permanent bridge is made up of crowns on either side of the missing tooth with a false tooth called a “pontic” in between. Our dental bridges anchor to neighboring teeth and replace the missing teeth in between them. A missing tooth replaced by your dental bridge is actually a natural-looking prosthetic tooth that is held in place by the natural teeth on either side. Like crowns (above), dental bridges are most commonly made from high-quality materials – metals, porcelain, ceramic or a fused combination of two different materials. We take into account your facial esthetics, bite function and tissue compatibility when we choose the material that's best for your teeth.
Since we first opened 40 years ago, we have been doing crowns and dental bridges the right way for people throughout Kansas City and the surrounding communities. If you have damaged or missing teeth, don't delay. Get a crown or bridge done the Wright way!
