Crowns & Bridges
Crowns are used as a cover or cap to be placed on top of a damaged tooth. If your tooth has healthy roots, but has been damaged in any way, a dental crown is usually the preferred treatment plan. The purpose of a crown is to both strengthen and protect your tooth structure and also restore your tooth’s natural appearance and shape. Crowns are generally made from ceramic or porcelain material and matched to your tooth’s natural color to make sure that they blend in perfectly with your teeth.
A bridge is a dental appliance meant to replace a missing tooth or a section of missing teeth. When you have missing teeth, the remaining teeth can end up shifting within your mouth and creating problems such as bad bites or temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. A bridge is used to fill the gaps and prevent those problems. For a bridge to be put in, a crown will be placed on both sides of your missing teeth and then a replacement tooth or teeth will be inserted between them. A bridge works just the same way as normal teeth do and with proper oral hygiene, they can last a lifetime.
