Dental Crowns

A crown is used to entirely cover a damaged tooth. A crown not only strengthens the tooth, but it can also dramatically improve the tooth appearance, shape and alignment.  Crowns may be used to…

 

  • Replace a large filling when there is little tooth structure remaining

  • Protect a weak tooth from fracturing

  • Restore a fractured tooth

  • Be part of a bridge

  • Cover a dental implant

  • Cover a discolored or poorly-shaped tooth

  • Cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment

Dental Bridges

A bridge is one or more artificial teeth that are cemented into place using the real teeth on either side for support--hence the name. Bridges are one option for filling the space created by a missing tooth or teeth. The other option would be a Dental Implant. A bridge replaces the missing tooth/teeth both functionally and cosmetically. A bridge involves placing a crown on each of the two teeth on either side of the bridge and attaching those crowns to a “Pontic”, which is the artificial tooth used to fill the space.
