Crowns and bridges can help patients with a broken tooth in Wichita

When you have broken teeth, or you are missing teeth, you are not only dealing with impairments in functionality; you also have to cope with negative changes in the appearance of your smile. It is important to find a dentist that you trust to restore your smile. Dr. Koepsel is highly skilled dentist who has over 40 years of experience in dentistry, making him the right choice for crowns and bridges in the Wichita area.


A crown is used to restore the size, shape, appearance, and strength of a missing or damaged tooth. It is a viable option for teeth that cannot be easily repaired with a filling. Crowns may be used if you have a filling that has cracked, require a dental bridge to replace multiple missing teeth, have recently had an implant placed, or after root canal therapy. They may even be used cosmetically to hide misshapen or stained teeth for patients who are not able to receive porcelain veneers. Crowns can be used for children to save a decayed tooth.

Crowns can be made of several different materials; one of the most popular is porcelain. Porcelain is a strong, long-lasting material that can be color matched to existing teeth for a natural looking restoration. When cleaned properly, crowns can last a decade or more. Avoiding bad habits such as grinding and clenching teeth may prolong the life of your crown.


Patients who are missing multiple teeth may benefit from a bridge. A dental bridge uses crowns on either side of the artificial tooth. The procedure gets its name from its ability to literally "bridge the gap" between missing teeth. Similar to crowns, bridges last on average five to fifteen years. As with many restorations, your dental bridge may require an adjustment period. Patients may opt to eat soft foods while they are getting used to chewing with it. Proper oral hygiene and regular dental visits can increase the longevity of your bridge.

Dr. Koepsel is committed to the health and appearance of his patients' smiles using restorations such as crowns and bridges. We also offer a variety of other services including dental implants, dentures, and cosmetic procedures such as teeth whitening and veneers.

    Such an amazing dental office! The staff is so nice and welcoming. I felt right at home. They used sedation dentistry on me and it took all the fear from me and it didn't even hurt. I have never met a dental office that is so easy to talk to! Love them
