A dental crown is a “cap” that looks like a real tooth and is placed over a tooth, to cover the tooth for the purpose of restoring its shape and size, strength, and appearance.
Crowns are used for reconstructing damaged teeth or replacing missing teeth. While they can be manufactured out of different materials, the best material is dental porcelain. Compared with crowns made out of other materials, porcelain crowns are more stable, stronger and resemble natural teeth more closely.
Porcelain crowns are strong covers made of porcelain that are used to reconstruct teeth that have suffered severe damage from a disease or trauma, but are still healthy. They are commonly used to reconstruct teeth that have been saved by a root canal.
Bridges are structures used to replace teeth that have been lost but still have strong teeth on one or both sides of the gap.
Bridges are attached to healthy teeth on one or both sides of the gap and have a crown in the middle that will replace the missing tooth.
If you have a need for dental crowns or bridges, please contact us to discuss your case and develop a treatment plan and estimate.
