A dental bridge replaces a missing tooth or teeth by linking two teeth with a space in between. The bridge occupies the empties space where a tooth or teeth where lost and is held together by two crowns adjacent to the empty space.
If you are interested in receiving a dental crown or bridge, contact our office to schedule an appointment!
A crown or cap is natural looking, tooth shaped covering that is placed over the damaged tooth (like a cap) to protect it from becoming more damaged or more decayed from a cavity. It is also used to cover a cracked tooth from further breakage, to protect a tooth with a root canal filling, or to prevent further breakage of a tooth with a large filling. A thorough examination and a radiograph will determine the amount of tooth structure that remains on the broken, cracked, or decayed tooth to asses the need for a foundation that the crown/cap would rest upon.
