Dental Crowns and Bridges in San Diego, CA
Restore the Function and Strength of Your Teeth
Do you need to replace a missing tooth or repair a damaged one? Some of the most common dental problems that Americans face are decay, cavities, and missing teeth. When these issues are left untreated, they can result in serious headaches down the road, which is where preventive treatments such as dental crowns in Scripps Ranch come in. At Mod Squad Dental, our goal is to give our patients the treatment and knowledge they need to maintain a healthy and happy smile for years to come.
Dental crowns are an important cornerstone of restorative dentistry, being designed to fit over individual teeth and restore their function, look, and shape seamlessly. There are several reasons why Dr. Greg Friedman and the rest of our team here in Scripps Ranch may recommend having a crown created and placed, including:
- Severe dental decay
- An injury to a tooth
- A generally weakened tooth
- Cosmetic concerns, like misshapen enamel
- The finishing touch for root canal therapy
- The finishing touch for dental implants
Crowns can also be used in conjunction with dental bridges, which are designed to replace one or more missing teeth in a row. This restorative solution can be a lifesaver, filling in empty gaps in your smile and restoring much-needed facial structure and biting strength. The dental crowns fall on either side, attaching to nearby healthy teeth as “anchors” that keep the bridge firmly in place for a more secure fit overall. Removable bridges, also known as partials, are available as well.
