Crowns & Bridges

Dental crowns are porcelain or porcelain fused to metal restorations used primarily to repair broken or fractured teeth, improve the prognosis for a tooth that has had previous root canal therapy, or change the shape or color of a tooth. When damage to a person’s teeth is extreme, and beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain “fused on gold” crowns to restore the smile. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems, even permanently replacing missing teeth to offer a complete smile and a functional bite.

A bridge fills a space where a tooth once was, and is generally three or more crowns fused together.
