Missing and broken teeth cannot only negatively impact your mouth’s ability to function but can also create additional dental problems for the surrounding teeth. In most cases, the surrounding teeth will shift and may create an area that is difficult to clean or restore. This can ultimately lead to an uneven, unattractive, and unhealthy smile.

Carolyn Crowley Correll DDS can restore your smile, improve the function of your teeth, and more importantly preserve your oral health. If you have a broken tooth, a crown may be a good option to restore your tooth. If you are missing multiple teeth, a bridge that would be permanently cemented into your mouth may be the better option.

A crown is a synthetic “cap” that is placed on top of a damaged tooth to restore it back to its original size, shape, and appearance.

A patient may need a crown for the following reasons:

  • Crowns are placed to protect weak or severely worn teeth

  • Tooth weakened by pre-existing fillings or large areas of decay

  • After a root canal treatment a tooth is weakened and may require a crown

  • If a tooth is cracked, a crown will keep the tooth from cracking further

  • Crowns are used as the supports in a dental bridge

  • Misshapen or severely discolored teeth

  • Crowns are used to restore dental implants

Dr. Carolyn Crowley Correll will be happy to discuss tooth crowns and help you decide if you may be a candidate for this treatment.

Dental Bridges

Replace your missing tooth.

Uncared for missing teeth not only harm your smile; they can affect your chewing and overall oral health. Dental bridges consist of crowns that are placed on the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth. These adjacent teeth are called “abutment teeth.” In the space between the abutment teeth a synthetic tooth is fabricated that will replace and mimic the missing tooth or teeth.

I am a new patient, new to Charlotte, and I had a crown come loose over the Christmas holidays. I called the first day back open to explain my dilemma. Even though it was their busiest day of the year, they fit me in within a couple of hours and treated me like family. I'm very grateful.
