Crowns & Bridgework

Crowns

A dental crown is a tooth shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth. Its function is to restore the tooth’s shape and size to improve its appearance and strength.

Crowns Are Needed To:

  • Protect a weak tooth
  • Restore an already broken tooth
  • Hold a dental bridge in place
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Cover misshapen or discolored teeth

Bridgework

A bridge is a fixed dental prosthesis used to replace a missing tooth or teeth by permanently joining an artificial tooth to adjacent teeth or dental implants.

Types of bridges may vary, depending upon how they are fabricated and the way they anchor to the adjacent teeth. Conventionally, bridges are made using the indirect method of restoration. However, bridges can be fabricated directly in the mouth using such materials as composite resin.

Benefits:

  • Repair your smile
  • Repair your ability to properly chew and speak
  • Maintain the shape of your face
  • Distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth
  • Prevent remaining teeth from shifting out of position
