Crowns and bridges are cosmetic solutions that help restore your tooth functionality and appearance. They are permanent restorations that are attached to existing teeth.
A crown is a custom-made dental restoration that is used to cover and protect a single tooth. A crown can strengthen a cracked, chipped or weakened tooth. Crowns are generally made of porcelain or a combination of materials and are fabricated to match the color of your natural teeth for beautiful, natural-looking results.
Crowns are often used in conjunction with root canal therapy and dental implants.
Dental bridges are structures made to replace one or more missing teeth, restore the natural contour of teeth as well as produce a proper bite. It’s important to replace missing teeth to avoid the shifting of surrounding teeth and to prevent further problems that are likely to develop.
A conventional bridge is a permanent replacement of a missing tooth/teeth that is secured onto neighboring teeth. Implants may also be used to provide anchorage for bridges and thus can help to replace missing teeth. Dental bridges are custom made to match your natural teeth for beautiful results.
