Bridges & Crowns
Smile Big, Without Damaged Teeth
Missing and broken teeth may have you feeling self-conscious about your smile. Restorative dentistry can aid in this issue, as well as improve your dental health. A dentist can cement a bridge or crown to existing teeth to provide a permanent solution for your issues.
Do I Need Bridges or Crowns?
Crowns and bridges can be used to solve the following problems:
- Restoring your broken teeth.
- Strengthening a weak tooth.
- Replacing a large filling or worn down tooth.
- Protecting dental implants.
- Concealing discolored or damaged teeth.
A dental bridge is an appliance used to replace missing teeth by being fixed to adjacent teeth or implants. Sometimes it is referred to as a fixed partial denture. Bridges can be made from porcelain, metals, and a variety of other materials and are created custom to fit your teeth. In some cases, teeth adjacent to the missing tooth may need to be shaved down to help the dental bridge attach.
The purpose of a dental crown is to reinforce the structure of a tooth. A crown is essentially a cap covering the tooth or implant. Crowns are made from differing materials from porcelain to metal and are tooth-shaped, so in some cases they look just like your other teeth. Most often, dental crowns are used on teeth with large cavities.
