Dental Bridges and Crowns

A tooth can lose its normal shape and size for a variety of reasons. A crown covers your tooth to help restore its original shape and size. Crowns can also be used to make teeth stronger and look better. Crowns have a variety of uses. In some cases that require a large filling, there isn’t enough tooth remaining to keep the filling in place. A crown can strengthen the tooth and hold the filling. Crowns can also protect teeth that are weak, or help fix ones that are broken. Discolored or misshaped teeth can be covered by a crown, as can dental implants.


Dental crowns can do a lot to build up and improve your teeth. A crown is tooth-shaped so it molds to your tooth while it covers it entirely. Because crowns protect weak or chipped teeth from breaking or decaying further. They will restore teeth that have suffered from decay or damage to the right size and shape. But, they can strengthen and improve the functionality of your teeth.  Crowns can replace fillings or cover dental work to make your smile look even better. If you aren’t satisfied with the color, shape, or alignment of your teeth, dental crowns can give you the look that you want. They will fortify your pearly whites so you do not have further issues with decay or damage.


Bridges can solve the issue of missing teeth. Similar to dentures, bridges replace gaps in your smile with artificial teeth. Bridges can be made from a variety of materials including porcelain, gold, and alloys. Bridges can be removable or fixed. Removable bridges can be taken out and cleaned by patients, whereas fixed bridges have to be removed by a dentist. Bridges can be implanted to the jaw or under the gums. With so many options, it is important to consult with your dentist about which type of bridge is best for you.
