If you suffer from damaged or missing teeth, a dental crown or bridge can be an excellent way to restore your smile. A dental crown, or cap, is a great choice if you need to repair a tooth that has significant decay or damage. Our dentists will provide you with a custom-made crown that will securely fit over the entire tooth, starting at the gum line. Dental crowns can be made of gold, porcelain, or porcelain fused to metal. Porcelain crowns are an increasingly popular choice because they are designed to resemble both the appearance and color of your nautral teeth. If you require a dental crown, we will help you know which type is best for you.
A dental bridge is an incredible restorative solution if you are missing one tooth or a row of multiple teeth. A bridge is a fixed (non-removable) dental appliance that is anchored in place with a dental crown on either side of the gap. These crowns will be custom-made to fit your individual smile. Even better, dental bridges are made to last for many years.
