Bridges & Crowns

Bridges and Crowns

There are plenty of reasons why it’s important to repair damaged or missing teeth. They can compromise your oral health, change your appearance, make it difficult to eat or drink, and can even make it challenging to speak normally. If you have a missing, cracked, chipped, or broken tooth (or teeth), then restorative procedures such as bridges and crowns can restore your smile’s strength and appearance.

What Is a Dental Crown?

Dental crowns, also sometimes called caps, are tooth-shaped appliances that are permanently bonded to a patient’s existing tooth structure. They completely cover and seal the portion of the tooth that’s above the gum line.

What Is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is a permanent dental device designed to replace one or more consecutive missing teeth. A bridge is made of two crowns (which are affixed to the teeth on either side of the gap) and one or more pontics (synthetic teeth that replace the missing tooth or teeth).
