Crowns

Crowns are used to restore and enhance teeth that are damaged, or to replace missing teeth.

A crown, also called a cap, is used to entirely cover a damaged tooth. A crown not only strengthens the tooth, but it can also dramatically improve the tooth's 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
  • Attach a bridge
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Cover a discolored or poorly-shaped tooth
  • Cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment

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 often a good choice for filling the space created by a missing tooth. A bridge replaces the missing tooth both functionally and cosmetically. Bridges can be made out of gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all-ceramic material made to match your natural tooth color. The choice of material depends on bridge's requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
