Dental Crowns: Your Tooth’s Personal Bodyguard

Dental crowns are custom-made, tooth-shaped caps designed to protect, strengthen, and restore the appearance of damaged teeth.

But what makes them so special?

Materials Galore: Crowns can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain, resin, and metal. Dr. Jake Beus will help you choose the perfect option for your unique needs.

Super Strength: Dental crowns can provide much-needed support for weak or damaged teeth, ensuring they can handle everyday wear and tear.

Aesthetic Appeal: They’re designed to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, so no one will ever know you’re wearing a crown.

Dental Bridges: Filling the Gap with Style

A dental bridge is a false tooth, known as a pontic, held in place by crowns on neighboring teeth. They’re a solid, reliable solution to fill the gap in your smile.

Here’s what sets dental bridges apart:

Variety is the Spice of Life: Traditional, cantilever, Maryland, and implant-supported bridges – there’s a type for every situation. Dr. Jake Beus will recommend the best option for you.

Stability Matters: Dental bridges offer a fixed solution, so you won’t have to worry about them slipping or moving while you eat or talk.

Natural Appearance: Your dental bridge will be designed to match your existing teeth, ensuring a natural, harmonious look.

Step 1: Consultation- Dr. Jake Beus will assess your teeth and discuss your goals, recommending the best course of action.

Step 2: Preparation- Your tooth will be prepared for the crown or bridge by removing any decay or damage and reshaping the tooth.
