Dr. Bridges was voted by her peers as one of the top general dentists in Tampa. So when it comes to picking a dentist, we know that you have options. Personalized, gentle, comprehensive patient care is our number one priority.
A tooth can lose its normal shape and size for a variety of reasons. A crown covers your tooth to help restore its original shape and size. Crowns can also be used to make teeth stronger and look better. Crowns have a variety of uses. In some cases that require a large filling, there isn’t enough tooth remaining to keep the filling in place. A crown can strengthen the tooth and hold the filling. Crowns can also protect teeth that are weak, or help fix ones that are broken. Discolored or misshaped teeth can be covered by a crown, as can dental implants.
Bridges can solve the issue of missing teeth. Similar to dentures, bridges replace gaps in your smile with artificial teeth. Bridges can be made from a variety of materials including porcelain, gold, and alloys. Bridges can be removable or fixed. Removable bridges can be taken out and cleaned by patients, whereas fixed bridges have to be removed by a dentist. Bridges can be implanted to the jaw or under the gums. With so many options, it is important to consult with your dentist about which type of bridge is best for you.

If you have young children, it’s important that you start bringing them in at a young age. This teaches them the correct way to keep their teeth and mouths healthy. Healthy oral habits last a lifetime, and when children are taught these habits properly at a young age it is much more likely that they will continue to practice the habits for the rest of their lives. It will also teach your children to go to the dentist on a regular basis. Our dental clinic is happy to work with your children and teach them these important healthy oral habits.
