Two of the most popular procedures for replacing and restoring missing or damaged teeth are dental crowns and bridges. Our dentists will thoroughly inspect your mouth during your initial visit at our location to decide whether these procedures are suitable for you.
Dental crowns, often known as caps, are a procedure used to repair teeth that have been fractured or destroyed due to decay, illness, or trauma. Crowns are fitted to your smile specifically and cemented over your natural tooth to protect it from further harm. A dental implant may be placed on top of your crown if you are replacing a missing tooth. Your dental crown is meant to be a durable remedy for your dental health.
Dental bridges serve as tooth substitutes. When a tooth is lost, the remaining teeth may shift into the vacant space, giving you a terrible bite and making it more challenging for you to chew and talk normally. In order to retain your teeth in the proper alignment, preserve a healthy bite, and restore your attractive smile, a dental bridge will physically “bridge” the gap in your mouth. Dental bridges may also be supported by a dental implant, but they are commonly held in place by crowns that are affixed to the teeth on each side of the prosthetic tooth.
