When a tooth needs to be replaced or restored, a dental crown or bridge will likely be recommended. During your visit to our office, our dentist will examine your smile and decide if either of these treatments is the best option for you.
Dental crowns are used to restore the strength, functionality and appearance of teeth that have been damaged by injury, disease or injury. Your dental crown will be custom-made to provide ideal fit and function. The dental crown is bonded over the original tooth to protect it and restore its function, strength and shape. In order to replace a missing tooth, a dental crown can be used to restore a dental implant.
Dental bridges are used to restore missing teeth. If a tooth is lost, the remaining teeth can drift out of position, resulting in a bad bite and a hindered ability to speak and chew properly. A dental bridge can close the gap caused by a missing tooth or teeth, thus allowing you to regain a beautiful, healthy smile. Dental bridges are often anchored in the mouth by dental crowns attached to the teeth on either side of the gap. They can also be held in place by dental implants.
