At Seek & Smile Dentistry, we understand that things can happen to your teeth. Cavities, injuries, and even tooth loss can occur, despite best efforts. That’s why we offer restorative solutions like dental crowns and bridges. With these options, you can get your smile back and help ensure better oral health in the future.

At Seek & Smile Dentistry, we work through talented, qualified dental labs to fabricate your custom dental crown. That’s because we want to help get your smile back to its best.
A dental bridge is an appliance specially designed to replace one or more missing teeth in a row. It consists of prosthetic teeth with dental crowns on each end. The missing teeth must be surrounded by natural healthy teeth or dental implants because a bridge relies on them as anchors to close the gap in between.

After you and Dr. Seekand have determined that a crown or bridge is right for you, the process goes as follows:
Anyone who needs a replacement tooth can be a candidate for a dental crown, and anyone who is missing one or more consecutive teeth can qualify for a dental bridge. When you need dental treatment, whether from decay or from other circumstances, Dr. Seekand can review your treatment options with you so that you’re fully informed and confident about the decision you make.
