Crowns and bridges are an excellent restorative option for fixing a variety of dental conditions.  Crowns and bridges come in a variety of materials, including gold, tooth-colored porcelain, and porcelain and metal combinations.

-Crowns, also known as “caps”, help strengthen and restore teeth that have been severely damaged due to decay or fracture.  Crowns can also be used to esthetically improve the appearance of stained or chipped teeth.  Crowns are cemented over the top of the damaged tooth, restoring the tooth’s ideal natural shape and appearance.

-A bridge is a device used to replace missing teeth by attaching artificial teeth to adjacent anchor teeth, also called abutments.  Dental bridges can help restore the appearance and function of missing teeth.  They can also be attached to dental implants.
