A dental crown is a tooth-like cap that treats damaged teeth. When a tooth is significantly compromised by deep decay, large fillings or fracture, a dental crown is recommended to help restore the strength and integrity of the remaining tooth structure. The crown, once cemented into place, will fully encase the entire visible portion of the remaining tooth structure. Dental crowns can be made of many different materials. Your doctor will take into consideration the different factors of your individual needs and recommend the best type of material to ensure that your dental crown provides the necessary support, functionality and aesthetics.
A dental bridge is a prosthetic device that is used to ‘fill in’ missing teeth by connecting artificial teeth to two supporting crowned teeth. A traditional bridge provides functionality and aesthetics in the space where teeth are missing.
Our doctors will take an impression of your mouth to ensure that your bridge is customized just for you, ensuring a natural and comfortable fit.
A dental bridge is a great alternative for patients with dental damage that is beyond repair and those who do not qualify for dental implants.
