What Is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is basically a cap that fits perfectly over an existing tooth. We work hand and hand with state of the art dental laboratories to ensure your restoration is perfect. We use only safe materials that mimic the look and feel of a healthy tooth.
After the dental crown has been made, it is fitted and bonded to the tooth. This bond is permanent, and the tooth can be used immediately. No one will be able to tell that you have a dental crown… they will only notice that your smile is more even, bright and complete!
What Are Dental Bridges?
A dental bridge uses the concept of a dental crown when a patient has a missing tooth that is between two other teeth. The two teeth on either side of the missing tooth are prepped and fitted with dental crowns. These dental crowns serve as “anchors” for a replicated missing tooth, which forms the bridge and fills in the gap.
This procedure may seem cosmetic, but there are health benefits as well. With dental bridges, you reduce the risk of losing more teeth, having healthy teeth shift, losing the ability to speak clearly and losing the ability to eat all foods easily.
