A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a tooth. It is meant to cover the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance. Crowns fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line when bonded into place.
Crowns are used to strengthen weak, broken or cracked teeth to avoid further fracturing. Crowns are also used to protect large fillings, attach bridges, or cover discolored or deformed teeth.
Crowns are also placed over dental implants. Call today to learn more!
Dental bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth in your mouth. Dental bridges are fixed in that they are bonded on the supporting teeth, or in some cases fixed on dental implants that have been placed next to replace missing teeth.
A traditional bridge is made of a crown on each tooth on either side of the space. These two anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth. There is also a false tooth or teeth in between the abutment teeth called pontics. The bridge can be made from gold, other precious metal alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials.
