Putting Smiles
Back in Action

Severely damaged or decayed teeth can lead to various challenges, such as sensitivity, pain, and a dent in self-esteem due to cosmetic concerns. To address these issues, dental crowns are utilized to restore both the form and function of weakened teeth caused by factors like cracks, large fillings, or root canals. In cases where dental implants may not be feasible, a dental bridge serves as a reliable alternative for replacing one or more missing teeth.

At iDENTity Dental Studio, our prosthodontist, Dr. Brandon Stapleton, takes a comprehensive approach to help you determine the optimal restorative solution tailored to your specific needs. Through detailed discussions, Dr. Stapleton will guide you through the different options available, offering valuable insights into the pros and cons of each.

Kentucky’s Dental Crown and Bridge Experts

A dental crown, made of porcelain or zirconia, is a fixed tooth cap that covers a compromised tooth, restoring its strength and structure while preserving the natural tooth as much as possible. To ensure a perfect fit, decay, and old filling material are removed, and digital impressions are taken for the creation of a customized crown at our specialized dental lab. Meanwhile, a temporary composite crown is provided for you to wear until the final crown is ready. During a follow-up visit, Dr. Stapleton ensures the secure fit and proper alignment of the crown, making any necessary adjustments to eliminate bite interference. Once satisfied, the crown is permanently cemented, ensuring a comfortable and functional bite.

Dental bridges, consisting of two crowns on abutment teeth and a false tooth in between, fill the gap and provide a seamless smile while restoring chewing, speaking, and smiling abilities. We offer temporary bridges during the bridge creation process, similar to crowns, until the permanent bridge is ready. However, to prevent bone loss in the empty space, we also provide implant-supported crowns and bridges, promoting bone growth and preventing deterioration.
