Crowns & Bridges
Restore Your Smile With Crowns
If you have broken, damaged or missing teeth, restorative dentistry can give your smile a fresh start. In many cases, crowns and bridges are the best solution for these dental problems.
Unlike dentures, crowns and bridges are fixed pieces that are cemented onto existing teeth. They are secure, which means they can only be removed by a dentist.
What is a Crown?
A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a tooth or dental implant, and it helps to strengthen and protect the tooth’s structure. We use crowns that consist of ceramic, while most traditional crowns can be made of several materials, like ceramic, metal & porcelain.
What Option is Right for You?
Crowns are a great option for patients, however they may not be for everyone. Your dentist will ultimately be able to determine the best treatment plan. In some cases, your dentist may recommend a bridge.
What is a Bridge?
A bridge is a dental appliance that is used to replace a missing tooth by joining permanently with adjacent teeth or dental implants. It is often referred to as a fixed partial denture, and in many cases, teeth on either side of a missing tooth must be reduced in size for the bridge to attach correctly. Bridges are custom-made, and can consist of a variety of materials, including porcelain and metals.
