Crowns & Bridges
Midland Park, NJ

When your smile has suffered from broken or missing teeth, you deserve a high-quality treatment that makes your bite stronger — as well as beautiful — all over again. At Veenstra Family Dental, we offer custom porcelain crowns and bridges in Midland Park, NJ. Each restoration is carefully shaped and color-matched so that it blends in with your smile for optimal fit and aesthetics.

Do I Need a Crown?

Crowns (sometimes called “caps”) protect the surface of your tooth above the gumlines. They’re necessary in instances involving

- Severe wear or fractures
- Deep cavities
- After root canal treatment
- Single tooth replacement with implants

Bridge Options

Bridges are multi-tooth restorations used to span the space left behind by a missing tooth. Because each end of a bridge is a functional crown (with a pontic crown suspended between) it must have a healthy tooth on either side of the space to affix itself to. We can also place bridges on top of a pair of dental implants, preventing the need for you to wear a removable partial denture.

Getting the Most Out of Your New Restoration

Cleaning around your fixed restoration is very important. In addition to gentle brushing, we recommend daily flossing around your crowns and bridges. In Midland Park, NJ we suggest scheduling a checkup every six months to evaluate the integrity of all your restorations, to help them last as long as possible. Because excessive clenching and grinding may cause your porcelain to chip or wear down, a custom night guard or bite splint may be useful.

If you have a missing or broken tooth, schedule a visit to Veenstra Family Dental today to restore your smile as soon as possible. Waiting too long could cause permanent changes in your smile that are even more costly to correct.
