Dental Crowns & Dental Bridges
When decay has removed too much tooth structure for dental fillings to be effective, a dental crown is the best solution. A dental crown restores and strengthens the entire tooth that is visible above the gum line. Crowns are usually made of metal or porcelain.
Porcelain crowns are typically built on a sturdy metal base. Crowns:
- Cover dental implants
- Secure bridges in place
- Restore a tooth’s shape, appearance and strength
Dental crowns are capped over existing teeth after filing down parts of the surface and sides.
A bridge is used to fill out gaps caused by missing teeth. Dental Bridges are usually made of metal capped by porcelain and secured on both sides by crowns. Unlike dental implants, bridges sacrifice part of your healthy teeth to anchor the false tooth.
