Crowns And Bridges
If you have a crack or break in your tooth, a dental crown or porcelain crown—sometimes referred to as “teeth caps”—may be an option. Dental crowns are restorations that cover the entire natural tooth crown and help bring back its shape and function. A crown can improve the appearance of your tooth and make it stronger.
Dental crowns and bridges are permanent prosthetics. Unlike removable dentures, we cement crowns and bridges to your remaining teeth or secure it with implants. Crowns and bridges can feel like real teeth and have many benefits, including durability.
The use of two or more dental crowns supporting prosthetic teeth is called a “bridge”. Bridges replace missing teeth and save remaining teeth. Both bridges and crowns can be supported by implant dentistry. Although most of our patients get implants instead of bridges, we can create beautiful bridges for you.
Bridges are also a great way to fill a gap in your smile. We attach two or more crowns to each other and bridge that space, restoring total function to your bite and your smile.
Benefits of Crown and Bridges
Save Your Tooth
Because tooth loss can lead to bone loss, it’s important to save your tooth whenever possible. Dental crowns and bridges protect your tooth root from cracks and breaks that could do irreparable damage.
Porcelain crowns are stain resistant and long lasting. If you maintain good oral health practices, your porcelain crowns may last years without stains or damage.
Dental bridges and crowns are done in our office in a timely manner.
