Dental Crowns and Bridges Provide Protection for Your Teeth
A dental crown is typically used when a natural tooth is discolored, severely decayed, cracked or broken. The crown completely covers the tooth, strengthening the tooth and enabling you to avoid an extraction.
A dental bridge spans across an area of your mouth where you have lost a tooth. The teeth on either side of the gap are fitted with dental crowns, and those crowns support the middle missing tooth replacement. The entire dental bridge is a permanent solution for those not interested in dental implant surgery, or who do not have enough bone density to support a tooth implant.
