About dental crowns
A dental crown, sometimes called a "cap," is fitted over a tooth covering every exposed surface. It may be used to restore the size and shape of a damaged tooth or to protect one with a compromised structure.
The benefits of a dental crown include:
Repair a decayed or broken tooth
Correct a misshapen or disproportionate tooth
Restore the appearance of a tooth
Correct cosmetic flaws
About dental bridges
A bridge is a fixed restoration that replaces one or more teeth. It utilizes dental crowns to support the false tooth or teeth. Because a bridge is a single unit, the process is streamlined and convenient, very similar to that of a dental crown.
The benefits of a dental bridge include:
Restore chewing efficiency
Prevent other teeth from shifting toward the space
Eliminate gaps in your smile
The crown and bridge procedure
The procedure consists of a few simple steps:
First, a consultation to discuss what option may be best suited for your needs. Once decided, the crown/bridge is designed
Next, the tooth is prepared for optimal crown retention and a temporary restoration is added.
You will then come in for a follow-up when your new crown/bridge is ready.
At your final visit, we will confirm the appearance and fit of the restoration, then cement it in place.
