A dental crown, which is commonly called a cap, is a treatment that is designed to restore the tooth’s strength, functionality and appearance after it has been damaged by decay or injury. Our dentist will customize your dental crown to match the natural appearance of your teeth. The dental crown is designed to cover the damaged tooth, preventing further damage. It can also be used to top a dental implant.
The dental bridge is used to replace missing teeth. After losing a tooth, the remaining teeth shift to fill the gap, causing you to develop a bad bite and have difficulty speaking and eating properly. The dental bridge is used to “bridge” the gap in your smile so that you can keep your teeth in their proper positions. Your dental bridge will be anchored in place by dental crowns attached to either side of the prosthetic tooth.
