Fix Dental Damage with Crowns & Bridges

Because a dental crown covers your entire tooth, it can fix all kinds of dental damage, including breaks, cracks, severe decay, and stains. Dental crowns can also replace missing teeth, if we attach them to dental implants or use them to create a dental bridge.

Dr. Douglas A. Callow on Dental Crowns and Bridges Read Transcript

We can restore your oral function with a dental crown or dental bridge in our Plymouth, MI dentist office so you can eat, speak, and smile normally.

To discuss your restorative dentistry options, including dental crowns and dental bridges, call Douglas A. Callow, DDS at 734-404-7336. A dentist for more than 35 years and a member of Omicron Kappa Upsilon, Dr. Callow has extensive training in the field of dentistry.

Benefit from Versatility, Durability of Our Dental Crowns

Their versatility is just one of the benefits of dental crowns. In addition:

  • They restore your tooth’s appearance and shape
  • They protect your tooth from further damage
  • They last a long time, with proper care

Your dental crown will fit perfectly because we take careful impressions of your teeth that are then used to create the crown. And Douglas A. Callow, DDS will make a temporary crown for you to wear while you wait.

We use two different types of material for crowns: zirconium and e.max, a special type of ceramic. Both materials offer significant advantages over crowns made of porcelain. They include:

  • More natural looking. Both materials are more translucent than porcelain, so they look more like your own teeth.
  • More durable. They are stronger and withstand wear-and-tear better than porcelain.
  • No metal base needed. Unlike many porcelain crowns, they don’t need to be fused to a metal base. So there won’t be an unsightly dark line at your gumline.
  • Require less alteration of natural teeth. We won’t have to modify your teeth as much to prepare them for crowns.

We Also Offer Inlays, Onlays, and Dental Bridges

Dental crowns aren’t the right solution for all dental damage, of course. If dental decay is too serious for a tooth filling but not serious enough for a crown, Dr. Callow can bond an inlay or an onlay to your tooth. Like a filling or crown, it will stop the decay and protect your tooth from further damage.

To replace a single missing tooth or multiple teeth, we’ll use two dental crowns to anchor a dental bridge. Those crowns can be attached to your natural teeth or to dental implants.

To find out if a dental crown or dental bridge can repair your damaged smile, call Douglas A. Callow, DDS at 734-404-7336. Our Plymouth, MI office was located 9357 General Drive in Plymouth, MI since 1989.
