Dental crowns and bridges are two of the most common restorations recommended to replace missing teeth and repair damaged teeth. During your visit with our dentist, we will help you determine which restoration is the best choice for you and your smile.
A dental crown, or a cap, is a restoration used to repair teeth that have become severely damaged due to injury, decay or infection. Each crown is custom made to perfectly fit your smile and restore the shape and size of the original tooth. The crown will either be placed on top of the damaged tooth or on a dental implant if the crown is replacing a missing tooth.
A dental bridge is a fixed restoration that is used to replace one or more missing teeth. After tooth loss, your remaining teeth can start to shift and further affect the health and appearance of your smile. A dental bridge can fill the gaps in your teeth and restore the full function of your smile. For best results, a dental bridge should be used to replace one or several missing teeth in a row.
