A crown is a dental cap that covers a damaged tooth, restoring not just its appearance but also improving strength and functionality. Cemented permanently in place, a crown can then be cared for and maintained as easily as a regular tooth. Dr. Hugh Ogletree offers crowns in a wide variety of materials:
- Porcelain– Porcelain is a popular choice for those wanting crowns that blend in with their current teeth. The porcelain is fused to an underlying metal crown for greater durability.
- Ceramic– Ceramic is another option for those wanting a dental crown that closely matches their natural tooth color. These are usually used for better aesthetics in the front teeth.
A bridge crosses the space left by a missing tooth or other dental space and helps secure the teeth on either side. A bridge is comprised of two dental caps that are placed on either side of the space, with a pontic in the middle that replaces the missing tooth/teeth.
Dentures are another option for the replacement of missing teeth. There are two types of dentures available, partial removable dentures and complete dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.
ROOT CANAL THERAPY (RCT)
Root canal therapy is treatment to the inside of the tooth. This treatment is specifically for the nerve or pulp the tooth. RCT removes the inflamed and/or infected tooth nerve and replaces it with a sterile material for tooth preservation. Once the RCT is completed on a tooth, a crown is recommended.

On a daily basis, your teeth experience a loss and gain of vital minerals that keep them healthy and strong. Several of these core minerals include calcium, phosphate, and fluoride. When too much mineral loss occurs, your teeth can weaken. Fluoride is a natural mineral found in much of your daily food and water intake, and is one of the most important factors in maintaining tooth health.
