Restore, Replace or Strengthen a Tooth with a Bridge or Crown
Hutto Hippo Family Dentist
When you have a broken or missing tooth, it can make even the simplest things difficult or even embarrassing. You may find it difficult to chew even the softest foods and you might hide your smile because you don’t like the way it looks. A bridge or a crown can change all that and at Hutto Hippo Family Dental, you won’t lose a lot of time from work or face weeks of discomfort or inconvenience.
A crown is essentially a tooth-shaped cap that we place over an existing tooth to strengthen the tooth, restore its shape and size and enhance its appearance. With a bridge, we’ll insertn a false tooth, anchored with a crown on the adjoining teeth.
At Hutto Hippo Family Dental, we can typically complete a bridge in two appointments, over a span of about two weeks. In most instances, we can put a new crown in with a single, 90-minute visit. To learn how we can help bring back your smile, call us at 512-779-6143 or contact us online.
