Dental Crowns and Bridges
If one of your teeth has lost a larger portion of it’s structure due to decay or fracture(s), a regular filling often will not provide enough coverage and strength. In these cases, we recommend a crown or bridge restoration.
Crowns are tooth-shaped restorations that cover the visible remaining structure of a tooth. Bridges are the same except they are designed to replace multiple teeth, and in some situations can replace missing teeth. Crowns and bridges save teeth from progressive damage and can improve appearance and function.
You might benefit from a crown if:
- Your tooth has a fracture
- You have large fillings that are failing
- Your tooth is discolored
- Your tooth is heavily worn down
- Your tooth has undergone root canal therapy
Crowns and bridges play an important role in keeping your teeth and gums healthy. You have many options available for improving your smile. At your visit we will look at your overall oral health and discuss materials, technique and cost. We know that improving your smile can be life changing and we are here to help guide you through each step.
