If you have damaged or missing teeth, you might be a good candidate for crowns and bridges.
Crowns, also commonly called caps, cover teeth that are damaged. Crowns not only help with the appearance of the teeth, but also strengthen them.
Crowns are commonly used to:
- Fix a tooth in which a filling isn’t possible because there is not much tooth left
- Keep a tooth that is weak, such as cracked teeth or root canal treated teeth, from breaking
- Fix a tooth that is broken
- Attach a bridge
- Restore an implant
- Cover an unsightly tooth whether it is shaped poorly, discolored, or has something else wrong with it
We are proud to offer CEREC one visit crowns for the majority of our crowns.
Bridges are used when one or more teeth are missing. A bridge consists of crowns connected to each other to keep them in place.
Bridges can be made with gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or ceramic material that closely matches your other teeth. Your needs, such as how strong you need the bridge to be, will help us decide what material to use.
Don’t hesitate to call if you have any questions.
