Crowns and Bridges

When a tooth's structure is significantly compromised by decay or is missing completely, a crown or bridge can be used to restore both function and appearance. As the name suggests, a crown sits atop the tooth, covering the area above the gum line and essentially becoming it's new surface. Made from a durable ceramic coating or a ceramic-metal composite, crowns are cemented to the underlying tooth structure. When done properly, a crown can last a lifetime. A bridge may be used to replace missing teeth, maintain facial shape and alleviate bite stresses. A bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth, looks great, and literally bridges the gap where one or more teeth may have been. A bridge can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials and is bonded onto surrounding teeth for support.
