Our Mt. Laurel family dentist, Dr. Michael Koplin, is dedicated to not only keeping our patients teeth healthy but also the best looking they can be. Dr. Koplin uses state-of-the-art equipment with the latest in dental advancements to give you the brighter smile you want, while providing you with dental crowns and bridges that are not only natural looking but functional as well.
At our Mt. Laurel family dentist we see many patients with teeth that are missing. Whatever the cause, we know this can be devastating and our compassionate staff listens to your needs and goals and suggest the best treatment options for you. When missing teeth makes it difficult to chew, a dental bridge could be the answer. A fixed bridge is a non-removable appliance that Dr. Koplin uses to replace single or multiple missing teeth. The empty space is filled with porcelain crowns (artificial teeth), that are connected to the teeth on both sides of the space. Usually requiring two to three dental visits, porcelain bridges are extremely durable and will last many years. A porcelain bridge not only restores the shape of your face but can alleviate any stress or embarrassment caused by missing teeth. A missing tooth can also be the start of other dental issues, including loss of more teeth and the shifting of adjacent teeth, which causes an imbalanced bite, difficulty chewing, and changes in the shape of your face.
The dental crown used in a bridge makes your tooth stronger, protects your tooth structure, and definitely improves your appearance. When a tooth is fractured, seriously damaged by decay, or has a large, old filling, our well-educated Mt. Laurel family dentist, at Koplin Dental, places a crown. In some cases, teeth that need crowns may also need root canals because the nerve inside the tooth has been damaged. Porcelain crowns are metal free, have a more life-like appearance, and restore a worn-down or fractured tooth to its original shade, size and shape. Replacing large fillings and protecting teeth from further breakage and decay, porcelain crown procedures usually require two appointments. Dental health is very important but we know it’s also important to be able to look your best and our knowledgeable staff is here to answer all your questions.
