CROWNS & BRIDGES

The main difference between a bridge and a crown is the way in which they function. While a crown is used to cover an existing tooth, a dental bridge is used to fill in the missing space caused by one or more lost teeth. A bridge is made up of one or more false teeth with one crown on either end of the bridge.

In cases where teeth have become decayed, damaged, or lost altogether, restorative dental procedures are used to repair the issue and maintain proper function. With a restoration, your tooth can continue to function and be a healthy component of your beautiful smile.

 

Every restoration we create is crafted for both durability and esthetics. We recognize how important it is to have a smile that is both comfortable and long-lasting, and we take your needs seriously. Please contact us to learn more or schedule a first visit.

 

What Is A Dental Crown?

A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations. Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain are the most popular. They are highly durable and will last many years.

 

What Is A Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge offers a highly effective, stable, and fixed solution for replacing missing teeth. The crowns that fill in for the missing teeth are held in place with crowns attached to the adjacent healthy teeth. Bridges are an affordable option for tooth replacement, particularly if you are not a good candidate for dental implants.
