If you have a chipped tooth, a broken tooth, extensive decay in a tooth, or a large gap between teeth due to tooth loss, Dr. Patrick Cieplak may recommend a dental crown to restore the tooth or a dental bridge to replace a tooth that has been lost. These tooth restoration procedures can restore your bite and also provide aesthetic benefits. Whether you need a quick-fix solution to repair your smile or are undergoing a complete smile makeover, turn to Dr. Cieplak for a full range of advanced dentistry procedures.
A custom dental crown is the perfect way to strengthen and reshape a tooth. If you are in need of a large restoration, undergoing a root canal, or getting a dental implant, we may cap the tooth with a custom crown. Crowns fit snugly over the top of the teeth and act as a strong shell protecting compromised tooth structure. They are highly durable and designed to look like the rest of your teeth. We will need to take impressions of your teeth before sending information to a lab for the fabrication of your custom dental crown.
You may be a good candidate for a dental bridge when you are missing a tooth and there is a risk that other teeth may shift or drift into the space. A bridge is a custom-made appliance constructed of two or more crowns that are fused together. The end units of the bridge attach to the teeth adjacent to the open space, while the middle portion of the bridge spans the space of the missing tooth. Placing a dental bridge helps restore the bite and also prevents teeth from shifting and moving.
Dr. Cieplak is one of only 3,000 dentists to receive the Academy of General Dentistry’s Master’s Degree.
