Crowns and Bridges
Crowns and bridges can make a smile that has missing or damaged teeth look and act normal again. These dental treatments restore your teeth’s natural look and strengthen their function. They can help keep your teeth healthy and bright.
Benefits of crowns and bridges
Crowns can help strengthen a damaged tooth as well as fix its appearance, especially in regard to alignment and shape. Bridges, on the other hand, literally “bridge” the gap between two teeth (where teeth may be missing). Bridges also stop the remaining teeth from moving into the empty spaces. This, in turn, can prevent tooth decays, misaligned bite, gum disease, or TMJ (jaw joint) disorders.
How crowns and bridges work
Crowns are caps that cover the entire tooth. They provide structure and shape. Bridges replace missing teeth. Before you are fitted for crowns or bridges, the teeth they will fit over must be reduced in size. After this is completed, an digital impression of the reduced teeth will be made so the new crown or bridge fits perfectly. These types of restorative dentistry are permanently cemented to your teeth.
Dental crowns can also be created for your in a single appointment. Learn more about CEREC® One-Day Crowns.
