If you’re experiencing functional problems with your tooth, or you’ve lost one or had it extracted, it may be uncomfortable to complete everyday activities like eating or even speaking. Damaged or decayed teeth often cause sensitivity and pain. Chips or cracks can make even the most confident person feel self-conscious. When a tooth is damaged, that doesn’t mean it needs to be extracted. If the tooth’s roots and interior are still healthy then the tooth is worth saving. We just may need to give it a new exterior. If you’ve got chipped teeth, cracked teeth, or broken teeth, we can make your smile whole and fully functional again with dental bridges and dental crowns in Livermore, CA.
At Sycamore Family Dentistry our dentist and dental team are skilled in these restorative treatments and have the artistic eye to provide aesthetically attractive outcomes, as well as returning function to your tooth. Your new restoration, made from porcelain or ceramic materials, will blend seamlessly with your existing teeth and be strong enough to bite and chew foods comfortably once again.
Dental crowns are fixed “caps” that cover over your teeth to restore strength and beauty. We generally recommend crowns when a tooth is too damaged or decayed to be treated with bonding or composite fillings. Similarly, we can use a dental crown to preserve a tooth after root canal therapy or to restore a permanent dental implant. We’ll take impressions of your tooth, which are used by a specialized dental lab technician to design your new restoration. Then, we’ll be sure your new dental crown fits securely over your tooth and the color blends in with your surrounding teeth. The advantages of dental crowns include:
If you’ve lost a tooth, but aren’t ready to commit to a dental implant, then a dental bridge is your next best option.

These will be used by experienced technicians at our partner dental lab who will hand-craft your restoration. Your dental bridge will be made from high-quality materials and color-matched to look natural alongside your existing teeth. The benefits of dental bridges include:
