Crowns and bridges are a highly effective solution for repairing damaged or diseased teeth. This treatment provides patients with a smile that looks cosmetically beautiful, while offering long-term durability, health and strength.
A crown, or cap, is often used to restore a single tooth that is cracked, chipped, or decayed and cannot be fixed with a filling. Crowns are also placed on teeth following a root canal. The root canal leaves the tooth weak and prone to fracture, so the crown is important because it prevents your tooth from breaking.
A bridge is used to fill the gap that is created by one or more missing teeth. It consists of two crowns for the teeth on each side of the gap, which is filled in by a false tooth.
