Crowns and Bridges
A crown (cap) is a restoration that is placed on teeth that have lost a lot of their structure due to damage or decay. A crown covers the tooth to restore its shape and size.
Crowns may also be used to securely attach a bridge if the structure of the surrounding teeth is inadequate. A bridge is a dental appliance that is used to replace one or more missing teeth. They are designed to be cosmetically appealing and to restore proper function. Like crowns, bridges are fully customizable and made of various materials, including porcelain and metals. Although not as permanent as a crown, bridges are bonded to the surrounding teeth and only removable by your dentist.
Both crowns and bridges are created to match the color, height, texture, and overall appearance of your teeth.
