Crowns and bridges are a type of restoration used to fix teeth that are damaged or to replace missing teeth. A crown is used to fully cover a damaged tooth. A crown can dramatically improve a tooth’s appearance, shape and alignment.
A bridge is an ideal restoration used to fill the space left behind by missing teeth. A bridge is one or more artificial teeth cemented into place using teeth on either side for support. The materials used for these restorations may be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material customized to the tooth color of choice.
Bridges and crowns are very durable and can last a lifetime with extra care and good oral hygiene.
