Get a Second Chance at a Smile!
If you have broken, damaged or missing teeth, restorative dentistry can give your smile a fresh start. In many cases, crowns and bridges are the best solution for these dental problems. Unlike dentures, crowns and bridges are fixed pieces that are cemented onto existing teeth. They are secure, which means they can only be removed by a dentist.
When Do You Need a Crown or Bridge?
You may need a bridge or crown to do the following:
- Cover a poorly structured or discolored tooth.
- Restore a damaged tooth.
- Replace a filling when there is’t enough tooth remaining.
- Protect a weak tooth from fracturing.
- Cover a dental implant.
What is a Dental Bridge?
Unlike dentures, which can be removed, a bridge is a fixed dental restoration appliance that joins to adjacent teeth and takes the place of a missing tooth or teeth. Sometimes the teeth that the appliance attaches to need to be reduced in size to ensure the bridge fits correctly. Dental bridges are customizable and come in a variety of materials.
What is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is shaped like a tooth and acts as a cap that is placed over a tooth. It helps to restore, strengthen, and protect a tooth’s structure. Just like bridges, crowns are customizable and come in a variety of different materials, including metals and porcelain.
