Most dentistry looks like dentistry – but at our practice, our goal is to provide dentistry that is almost undetectable.We understand how disheartening it can be to look at your missing, damaged, cracked, broken or discoloured teeth every day. This is why at Curtis Couch DDS, we offer solutions to these issues and deliver personalised and effective treatment that gives optimum results while seamlessly blending in with your natural teeth – while improving the overall appearance of your smile.
Replacing missing teeth with undetectable crowns and bridges…Teeth were designed to complement each other. Unusual stresses are placed on the gums and other oral tissues when teeth are missing, causing a number of potentially harmful disorders. Crown and bridgework is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases or wear and tear. Crowns and bridges are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not.
What are crowns?Where damage to a person’s teeth is extreme, and apparently beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain “pasted on gold” crowns to make the smile appear “as new”. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems, even permanently replacing missing teeth to offer a complete smile and a functional bite.
What are bridges?A bridge is a device used to replace missing teeth. This device attaches artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth, called abutment teeth. Bridges are either permanently attached (fixed bridges), or they can be removable. Dental health is the most important reason for a bridge.
Key benefits of dental crowns and bridges
- Replaces missing teeth
- Offers support to misshapen teeth or badly broken teeth
- Looks completely natural
- Fixes “smile” and functional chewing problems
