A crown is used to cover a tooth and restore it to its normal shape and size. It can make your tooth stronger and improve the appearance of your smile.
It can cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't enough tooth left and can also be used to protect a weak tooth from breaking or restore one that is already broken.
A crown is a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped. It is also used to cover a dental implant.
Bridges help maintain the shape of your face, as well as reduce the stress in your bite by replacing missing teeth in the following ways:
- Fixed Partial Denture - patient can take out and clean
- Fixed Bridge - can only removed by dentist
- Implant Bridge - artificial teeth are attached directly into the jaw or under the gum tissue
The restoration can be made with alloys, gold, porcelain or a combination of these materials and is bonded onto surrounding teeth for support.
