Dental Crowns and Bridges
Crowns: A crown is used to restore a tooth’s function, integrity, and beauty. When a tooth is severely damaged by decay or a traumatic injury, Dr. Berg may recommend a crown. Our dental lab will craft you a crown that not only looks beautiful but is durable to last for many years.
Bridges: Bridges are a great way to replace one or multiple teeth. It’s made up of two or more crowns placed on your neighboring teeth that are on either side of the gap. Then, an artificial tooth is fitted between the crowns, hiding the missing tooth. While the bridge is placed, Dr. Berg will make sure it matches your surrounding teeth for a natural look.
Dental implants are the best solution to replace missing teeth for many reasons:
- No additional teeth need to be altered to place the tooth
- Implants stop jaw bone deterioration, giving your facial structure support
- They are securely placed so you can eat your favorite foods and speak with confidence
- They blend in with your natural smile
The entire implant process is completed with the partnership of Dr. Berg and an oral surgeon – whom Dr. Berg trusts completely. The first part is to install the post into the jawbone, which is done by your referred oral surgeon. After your surgery, we’ll schedule regular checkups to ensure your implant is healing correctly and fusing with your jawbone.
Once healed, we’ll place the abutment on the implant, serving as the base of your new tooth. Finally, Dr. Berg will restore your dental crown on top of the abutment to create your new tooth.
Your smile will look just like it used to and it will feel just like one of your own teeth.

There may be many reasons why you need a tooth extraction:

Multiple people grind their teeth at night. This is a condition known as bruxism, and it can severely damage your enamel, wear down teeth, cause jaw pain, and irritate your gums.
If we see signs of nighttime bruxism, we’ll advise wearing a nightguard to protect your smile. Very similar to a mouthguard, the nightguard is customized to your teeth for a snug, comfortable fit.
