Crowns and bridges restore your smile and improve your bite.

At 50th and France Dental Care, we want you to have a beautiful smile, but we also want you to be able to enjoy your favorite foods. In other words, we want your teeth to be healthy, beautiful, and strong.

Let’s look at a few ways that dental crowns and bridges from our Edina, MN dental office can restore your bite and enhance your smile.

Dental Crowns for a Better Bite

Our dental crowns are custom designed to match your healthy teeth, both in shade and shape.

Dental crowns are covers that fit over your tooth to restore the damage. Sometimes a crown is needed due to tooth decay. Other times it comes down to wear and tear such as a fracture.

A dental crown, following tooth preparation, is a noninvasive option with the following benefits:

  • A beautiful-looking tooth or teeth
  • A stronger bite
  • A stronger and more viable tooth

A Dental Bridge to Stand in for Missing Teeth

A dental bridge is an affixed dental restoration for missing teeth. The bridge is essentially an arch with natural-looking tooth restorations. It is custom created to fill in the gaps where teeth are missing.

A dental bridge also improves your bite as it restores your smile.

Why Bite Matters

When teeth are damaged or weak, they are susceptible to breakage, which leads to additional tooth loss. When a dental crown is placed over a weak tooth, the tooth is viable again, only stronger.

When teeth are missing, you also rely on existing teeth to do most of the chewing. This means additional wear, which could lead to more tooth loss in the future. Additionally, when your bite is restored, you can optimize your dietary choices.
