Crowns, Bridges & Implants
A crown (cap) is a restoration that covers the entire tooth. A crown is indicated if a significant portion of the tooth is broken or missing, or to protect a tooth from further breakdown. A tooth fixed with a crown feels, works and looks like the natural tooth.
A bridge is a fixed restoration that helps to replace one or more missing teeth. Teeth adjacent to the missing area help anchor a non-removable solution that helps restore function and esthetics.
Often times, a crown or bridge is done in conjunction with dental implants in areas of tooth loss. A dental implant is a screw that anchors to the bone to build a foundation for a crown or bridge to be placed over top. An implant in conjunction with a crown or bridge can be a very effective way to restore both function and esthetics.
