Crowns & Bridges – Get Rid of the Gaps in Your Smile
Fill in the Blanks with Crowns & Bridges
Living with missing teeth is both a burden and a hazard alike. Smiling doesn't feel good when you have gaps in your teeth. Aside from that, there are a lot of health risks associated with missing teeth. It can leave you at greater risk for health issues brought on by gum disease.
Gum disease has been linked to heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer's, and cancer, making it more than just an aesthetic issue. Luckily, we can replace missing teeth using bridges and crowns in Grove City, Ohio!

Restoring Your Smile's Natural Beauty
Each of our 32 natural teeth was designed and positioned to share the task of chewing and smiling with incredible beauty and efficiency. Crowns and bridges were developed to restore damaged or missing teeth back to their natural beauty and performance.
The Purpose of Crowns
A crown – sometimes called a cap – is usually made of gold, porcelain, or unique plastic material. We prepare the tooth for an impression and plaster model so our dental laboratory can create a custom-fitted crown that looks and functions like your natural tooth. Once we permanently cement the new crown into place, your smile will look, feel, and work exactly as nature designed it to.
The Role of Bridges
A bridge is a combination of crowns and artificial teeth. Bridges can close the gap left by one or more missing teeth in a row, restoring the look of your smile and redistributing the workload more evenly. Others are permanently bonded to your healthy teeth with crowns. Sometimes, we suggest an artificial tooth implanted right into your jawbone.
Preventive Treatment and Cost Savings
Sometimes we can use crowns and bridges to prevent damage along with more extensive and costly dental work. For example, if we wait until a large filling falls apart, we risk weakening the tooth's nerve or fracturing the root. Early, preventive treatment on a high-risk tooth saves time and money and may also save your tooth.
At Grove City Dental, we understand the importance of maintaining oral health and its impact on overall well-being. Dr. Scott Schumann and our dedicated team are committed to providing top-quality care and personalized treatment options. Don't let missing teeth affect your confidence and oral health any longer.
