When it comes to dental restorations, dental crowns and bridges are among the most versatile. Our Peabody, MA dentists use them to:
- Save teeth compromised by severe decay, breaks, or cracks
- Keep additional damage from happening
- Conceal cosmetic issues such as stains or misshapen teeth
- Make it easier to keep your teeth clean and healthy
- Enable you to enjoy food again
- Replace missing teeth when attached to a dental implant
Dental crowns can also anchor a fixed dental bridge to replace anywhere from a single tooth to several missing teeth. To avoid altering healthy teeth, our dentists can attach a fixed dental bridges to dental implants on either side of the dental bridge.

For a Fix Between a Filling and a Crown, Choose an Inlay or Onlay
For cavities that are too large for a simple filling yet not large enough for a dental crown, our dentists will likely recommend an inlay or an onlay. They cover more tooth area than a filling but don’t cover the entire tooth like a dental crown. Inlays are used to repair damage to the biting surface of your teeth, while onlays fix problems on the sides, cusps, and biting surfaces.
Sedation Can Relax You During Restorative Procedures
Our dentists thoroughly numb you for restorative dentistry procedures. But if you’re nervous, you can get intravenous (IV) sedation. Effective almost immediately, it will keep you in a deeply relaxed, sleeplike state. Our experienced team will monitor you throughout your treatment. Dr. John Argeros has been using IV sedation during many types of dental treatment since 1977. He has even served as president of the Massachusetts Dental Society of Anesthesiology.
