Two of the most common treatments for replacing and restoring damaged teeth are dental crowns and bridges. Crowns and bridges are designed to help you regain your oral health and function as well as your beautiful smile. When you visit our office, our dentist will discuss your options with you and examine your mouth thoroughly in order to determine if a crown or bridge is the right treatment for you.
Dental crowns are designed to restore the strength, functionality and appearance of your teeth. They are custom made to fit your smile and are bonded over your original tooth to cover it and prevent any further damage from occurring. Crowns may also be placed over a dental implant to replace a missing tooth.
Dental bridges are made to replace missing teeth. They prevent your remaining healthy teeth from shifting out of position and restore your ability to speak and eat as well as the appearance of your smile. Bridges help you maintain a healthy bite and smile so that you can feel confident in your final result for years to come. A bridge is typically anchored in place with crowns but may also be fixed atop one or more dental implants.
