Dental crowns and bridges are a common treatment option for patients seeking to restore or replace their teeth. If you have damaged or missing teeth, our prosthodontists can help determine if dental crowns and bridges are well suited to your needs.
Dental crowns, often referred to as caps, are designed to repair damaged, injured or decaying teeth to fully restore the health and function of your smile. Often, cracked or damaged teeth can increase the risk for infection and severely impact the state of your oral health. To keep your oral health in good condition, a dental crown can act as a barrier between your damaged tooth and any harmful bacteria that enter your mouth. In other cases, you may benefit from a dental crown if you seek to protect a recent dental implant or root canal.
A dental bridge is a recommended replacement option for patients who have single or multiple missing teeth. This treatment creates a bridge between your remaining teeth and the gap created by your missing tooth using two dental crowns. This bridge will help support your new artificial tooth and effectively restore your smile to optimal health.
