Dental Crowns & Bridgework

Don’t let missing or damaged teeth affect your smile.

What are Dental Crowns & Bridgework?

A crown completely covers the damaged tooth. It looks like one of your natural teeth. The crown can be cemented over the existing tooth or can be attached to a dental implant.

Crowns can be made of several materials. Ceramic and porcelain are the most common and give the best aesthetic results because of their close match with the natural color of the teeth. Metal crowns come in gold or silver. Stainless steel crowns are often used in the mouths of growing children.

Don’t Let Missing or Damaged Teeth Affect Your Smile

The dentist may recommend a crown in a few circumstances:

  • Significant loss of tooth structure.
  • The tooth has sustained extensive damage due to decay or trauma.
  • The tooth is weak and likely to chip or break.
  • The tooth is poorly shaped or discolored.
  • The tooth has undergone a root canal and needs protection.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is another option for dealing with a missing or damaged tooth.

Bridgework literally bridges the gap where there are missing teeth. The remaining teeth on either side of the gap, called abutments, are trimmed and covered with a crown.
