Crowns & Bridges

A crown is used to cover a damaged tooth or to improve its appearance. Porcelain or ceramic crowns can be matched to the color of your natural teeth. It can also be made in other materials such as gold, metal alloys and ceramic.
Your may need a crown to:

  • Cover a tooth with a large filling when there isn't enough tooth remaining
  • Protect a weak tooth from breaking
  • Restore a broken tooth
  • Cover a discolored or misshapen tooth

One or more missing teeth can adversely affect the appearance and functionality of your smile. Missing teeth can cause a change in the bite, shifting of the teeth, temporomandibular joint disorder, speech impediments, an increased risk for gum disease and a greater chance of tooth decay.

Dental bridges are false teeth, which are anchored onto adjustant teeth in order to replace one or more missing teeth. The false tooth is fused in between two crowns that serve as anchors by attaching to the teeth on each side of the false tooth, thereby bridging them together.

Bridges normally require shaping of the teeth surrounding a missing tooth. Crowns are then placed on the shaped teeth and attached to an artificial tooth.
