A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that simply fits over the top of a damaged tooth. We typically use them to repair severely decayed or broken teeth, but they can also be used to cosmetically enhance permanently stained, mis-shaped, or slightly crooked teeth. They can be made from a variety of materials depending on which tooth needs to be repaired, ranging from strong and durable metal for the back teeth to beautiful and natural-looking porcelain for the front teeth.
Most dental offices will require at least two visits to give you a crown, but thanks to our advanced CEREC technology, we can often complete the entire treatment in just one well-planned appointment!
A bridge is a type of prosthetic that can replace a single missing tooth or even a few in a row. To do this, the teeth on either side of the gap in a patient’s smile are topped with crowns, and these are then bonded to prosthetic teeth to fill in the space. This not only makes the smile look better, but it also helps even out the bite as well as prevent the other teeth from shifting out of place.
