Teeth can handle almost anything thrown at them, but sometimes bacteria or injury can stain or disfigure them. Teeth that can no longer be used normally or have lost their visual appeal can be covered or replaced with crowns and bridges.
What Are Crowns and Bridges?
Crowns and bridges are dental caps that can be placed over existing teeth or specially installed on implant posts. A crown covers or replaces a single tooth while a bridge covers or replaces multiple teeth.
These caps are designed to match the appearance of your other teeth including size, shape, and color. When crafted in a high quality lab by an experienced professional, crowns and bridges can blend in seamlessly and naturally with the rest of your smile.

Our Crowns and Bridges
Tryon Dentistry uses a leading-edge lab facility for the careful crafting of restorative artificial teeth. Your crowns and bridges will be of the highest quality for maximum comfort and visual appearance.
First, the sizing and appearance of your crown or bridge will be determined. Dr. Tryon will examine your teeth, bite, and entire facial appearance when deciding what your crown or bridge should look like. He may file parts of your teeth so that the artificial cap will fit comfortably. An impression and photos of your teeth will be made.
Then, your crown or bridge will be created in a high-quality lab. Dr. Tryon will send all instructions, impressions, and photos to the lab so that your crown or bridge can be crafted to restore and improve the unique appearance of your smile.
Finally, your crown or bridge will be installed. Dr. Tryon will apply your newly crafted caps over your teeth or implant posts and evaluate their size, fit, comfort, and appearance. A new crown or bridge can be created and installed at a later date if there are any problems.
Our high-quality crowns and bridges are designed to last many years. Call us today to schedule a consultation for your restorative dental work with Dr. Tryon.
