Dental Crowns & Bridges
When a tooth has been severely damaged beyond what can be fixed with veneers, dental bonding, or fillings, a crown is one way to keep the tooth and restore your natural smile. Dental crowns are a tooth-shaped cap that fits over your natural tooth to protect and reinforce it. Dental crowns are also an essential part of root canal treatments and dental bridges.
Benefits of Tooth Crowns
- Adds strength to a damaged tooth
- Improves appearance of damaged teeth
- Looks natural and is virtually undetectable
- Allows for regular biting and chewing
If you’re missing a tooth for any reason, don’t worry—bridges can help you fill the gap. A dental bridge is a custom-made artificial tooth that is attached to crowns that are placed over the adjacent teeth. This dental work looks just like your natural teeth and fills in the gap left behind by the missing tooth.
What Do Bridges Do?
Since bridges help fill in the space your missing tooth left behind, they can help prevent your other teeth from shifting over time. They also let you speak and chew normally, without putting any extra pressure on the surrounding teeth. They look completely natural and can even last over a decade if you take good care of them.
