What are Dental Crowns and Dental Bridges? Unlike removable devices such as dentures, dental crowns and dental bridges are fixed prosthetic devices. They are permanently cemented onto your natural teeth or implant. These can only be removed by a dentist (Please don’t try yourself!)
DENTAL CROWNS AND DENTAL BRIDGES
How Do Dental Crowns Work? Dental crowns entirely cover up a damaged tooth. Dental crowns significantly strengthen the damaged tooth while improving its appearance and shape. Our porcelain dental crowns will match the color of your teeth.
How do Dental Bridges Work? Dental Bridges are recommended if you’re missing one or several teeth. Naturally, gaps left by missing teeth will cause the surrounding teeth to move where they shouldn’t be. This can result in a poor bite and other more severe problems. Our dental bridges are made of porcelain to perfectly match your natural teeth!
Reasons to Get a Dental Crown:
When you need to replace a large filling and there is not enough tooth remaining
When you need to protect a weak tooth from fracturing or breaking
When you need to restore a fractured or broken tooth
