A crown completely caps a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when significant decay threatens the ongoing health of a tooth. They are bonded to the tooth using cement. Crowns can be made from many different materials. Crowns are used to improve the strength or the appearance of teeth.
We use dental labs who specialize in crown customization so that your crowns will have the best fit possible and fit as closely as possible like your natural tooth. This process essential for the durability and comfort of the crown.
Sometimes referred to as fixed partial denture, a bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth and “bridges” the gap where one or more teeth used to be. Bridges can be made out of gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials and attach to surrounding teeth for support. Unlike a removable bridge, which can be taken out and cleaned, a fixed bridge should only be removed by a dentist.
We use high quality dental labs to ensure that your bridge will fit naturally into your mouth. A bridge is often a great option to restore function of your teeth and bite. If you have missing teeth and would like to know if a bridge is a good option for you, give us a call today!
