  • Thank you so much for taking such good care of my dad. He was very pleased with his visit and said how comfortable you and your staff made him. I had no doubt it would be that way, but wanted you to know. Thanks!

  • I want you to know how much I appreciate your healing skills and expertise! Without your training and dedication many of us would continue in pain. Know that you are so appreciated for using your God given gifts! Thank you so much.

    - Diane
  • I want to thank all of you who have worked with me and my dental anxiety. As you could tell I have never had a patient or understanding dentist/staff to work with me. I really appreciate all you have done.

  • I recently had a lot of work done on my teeth and just want to say thank you for all the wonderful care I received. I felt no pain and was very comfortable the entire time. I really enjoyed the kind and patient attitudes of everyone as well as the atmosphere. I so appreciate you fixing my messed up mouth, doing such a great job and making me feel so comfortable!

    - Molly
  • I can't thank you enough. You have given me more than a smile. Your staff are the most professional that I have ever dealt with. You have a lot to be proud of. Thank you so much!

Crowns and Bridges

If you have ever had a damaged or missing tooth, you know how important it is that your dentist makes high-quality, long-lasting restorations. Dr. Jessie Scott is experienced in creating tooth-colored dental restorations such as crowns and bridges that look great, match your smile, and provide you with reliable service.

At Scott Family Dentistry, we use the latest technology and quality materials to give our patients consistently great results – every time. After all, your smile is one of the things that people first notice about you! 

What Is a Dental Crown?

When you break a tooth, have a cracked tooth, or your tooth has suffered from deep decay, a dental crown can provide your compromised tooth with stability and increased function. A dental crown covers your tooth from the gumline to the chewing surface. It fits over your tooth structure much like a protective helmet. Your dental crown will seals out bacteria, protecting it from additional damage and will absorb some of the force from chewing.

Dr. Scott will make sure you are completely numb and comfortable for your procedure. We use computer-aided anesthesia (STA, or single-tooth anesthesia) to make injections more comfortable for our patients. We believe in comfort!

We will take an impression of your tooth to create a crown that fits well. Having precise restorations is essential to your oral health and your bite. Dr. Scott will take her time ensuring that your crown fits perfectly.

Fixed Dental Bridges

Losing a tooth is often stressful. It affects your speech and your smile, and it can also make you feel self-conscious about the way you look. At Scott Family Dentistry, we offer tooth-replacement options to give you a complete smile again.

A  fixed dental bridge requires crowns on the teeth adjacent to your missing tooth. These crowns will hold your artificial tooth in place. When you smile, it will look natural. Fixed dental bridges have the added benefit of keeping your remaining teeth from drifting toward the gap in your smile.

Caring for Your Dental Bridge

Dental bridges do require some special care. You must keep food particles from collecting under and around your bridge. We have special recommendations for how to do this! It is important to remember that caring for your teeth and gums is essential to the health and longevity of both your natural teeth and your dentistry. Conditions such as gum disease can cause your dentistry to fail.
