Crowns & Bridges

It depends on the location of the tooth and the extent of the damage. In some cases, the solution may be as simple as dental bonding. If the damage is more extensive and involves more of the tooth’s structure, a dental crown might be the best solution.

There are three types of dental restorations that our Bridgeton, NJ dentists might recommend to fix a broken tooth:

  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Dental bonding
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Dental crowns

When Dr. Boss and Dr. Virunurm meet with you, they’ll determine the extent of damage to your tooth. They may recommend dental x-rays to see how the structure of the tooth has been affected and the protection it might require.

Since we want you to feel informed, our dentists will also use an intraoral camera to show you what the problem is. They will make a recommendation and explain how the treatment will resolve your issue and improve your oral health.

You can be confident that we will take your unique needs into account so that you are completely comfortable with the decision we make together.

If you need help for a broken tooth in Bridgeton, NJ, please call Boss Dentistry to schedule a dental appointment.

We use bridges and dental implants at our Bridgeton, NJ dental office to replace missing teeth. Both restore your appearance and give you back some function after tooth loss. But they go about it in different ways.

  • A dental bridge is a prosthetic device that places an artificial tooth (pontic) in the open space. The pontic is held in place by dental crowns that our dentists attach to the healthy teeth on either side of the gap in your smile.
  • A dental implant replaces an entire missing tooth, including the root. A tiny post is placed surgically in your jaw and supports the dental crown we attach to it. For this reason, we don’t need to involve any healthy teeth for support as we do with a bridge.

Both are excellent options that work well for patients in Bridgeton, NJ who want to replace missing teeth. If you’re in a hurry or aren’t ready to commit to a dental implant, a bridge is an excellent choice. But if adjacent teeth aren’t healthy enough to support dental crowns, or you’d like a long-term solution to missing teeth, our dentists would recommend a dental implant.

At Boss Dentistry, we also offer full and partial dentures as well as implant dentures. Having options to choose from lets Dr. Boss and Dr. Virunurm personalize your tooth replacement to fit your needs.

Please call us to see which is right for you!
