Dental crowns, also called caps, are a type of tooth restoration designed to repair several different types of problems. A crown helps protect a tooth and restores function, health, and esthetics. Different materials are used for crowns, including porcelain, metal, or a combination of both. Porcelain crowns are the most esthetic option. This type of crown is matched to your other teeth and is virtually indistinguishable. Great care is taken by our dentists to ensure your new crown blends and functions harmoniously with the rest of your teeth.
If you’re missing one or more of your teeth, you may notice a difference in chewing and speaking. Bridges can help restore your smile and regain the function of your teeth.
Sometimes called a fixed partial denture, a bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth and literally “bridges” the gap where one or more teeth used to be. Bridges are attached to adjacent teeth or dental implants for support. Unlike a removable partial denture, a fixed bridge cannot be taken out. The success of a bridge depends on the foundation, so it’s very important to keep your remaining teeth healthy and strong.
