A crown is a restoration that covers a single, damaged tooth that has been severely decayed or fractured. Dental bridges are restorations that replace missing teeth, and are bonded over two supporting teeth to “bridge” a false crown between them.
You may never know that you have a cavity until we take an x-ray and have Dr. Bell inspect the image. However, some symptoms of tooth decay can include sensitivity, rough edges along the tooth, and food packing between the teeth.

Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain that Dr. Bell bonds to the front of your teeth to change the way your smile looks. Veneers can make teeth look straighter, whiter, and perfect in as few as two trips to our Alexandria office!
