Crown & Bridge


Crown Overview:

 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.

 

Bridge Overview:

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.
