Crown & Bridge Therapy in Leawood

Dental Bridges for Tooth Replacement

If you’re missing teeth, then you’re not enjoying the benefits of a strong, healthy smile. Dr. McKnight and Dr. Konz  use dental bridges to replace dentition and restore oral vitality.

Missing teeth leave gaps in your smile. A dental bridge fills these gaps with one or more durable, attractive prosthetic teeth. Your dentist will affix your bridge to healthy, neighboring teeth with dental crowns. In the absence of healthy anchor teeth, your dentist may suggest dental implants.

Dental Crowns

A damaged, cracked, or severely worn tooth won't improve naturally. Left untreated, you could experience an awkwardly broken tooth that requires emergency care. At Schutte and McKnight Dentistry, we apply custom crowns to restore form and function to structurally unsound dentition.

A crown fits snugly atop a compromised tooth to strengthen it and protect against further damage. We offer all-ceramic or porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns. Your dentist will consider the location of your tooth and the amount of stress it incurs to determine the best material to use. All-ceramic crowns blend seamlessly with natural teeth and offer an esthetically pleasing solution to renew dental function.
