Want to know what the dentists at Green Bay Family Dentistry can do for you?

One of the most economically friendly ways to replace missing teeth is to get crowns and bridges. Dr. Adam Pasono offers patients those exact procedures at their Green Bay, WI, office.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns in Green Bay can offer you so much. The custom-made dental restorations, also referred to as caps, are made of porcelain, a durable material. They are placed over a tooth after your doctor shapes the tooth.

Sometimes a tooth is so severely decayed, the doctor needs to rebuild the tooth before placing the crown over it. Crowns can also help you hide chips and cracks caused by injuries, like during sports. They also conceal stained and/or discolored teeth caused by smoking, chewing tobacco and/or eating teeth-staining food.

Crowns also cover teeth after restorative procedures like a root canal. The dental crown reinforces your teeth, which makes biting and chewing easier, sometimes possible if you're missing teeth.

Dental Bridges

Bridges are helpful in improving aesthetic and functional issues. They restore missing teeth and restore bite and chewing functions.

The dental bridges your dentist offers are custom-made oral appliances that will match the rest of your teeth. Your dentist uses fixed partial dentures are attached to dental implants or natural teeth. Fixed partials come in many forms: conventional fixed bridges, cantilever bridges and resin-bonded bridges.

If you would prefer removable bridges, they can be a great option. They're easy to clean and are a better hygienic choice.


Crowns and bridges conceal many issues, as well as add reinforcement for your teeth. They are great treatments that can improve the quality of your life and the appearance of your smile. If you have any questions about crowns and bridges, please don't hesitate to call Dr. Adam Pasono at his office in Green Bay, WI. Just call (920) 432-8492.
