Dental Crown
A dental crown, or cap, is a restoration which may be used for many purposes. Crowns are frequently used to restore teeth that are significantly damaged or decayed. They are custom-made to fit over your entire tooth to restore it to its original shape and size. Crowns may be made of gold, porcelain, or porcelain fused to metal. Porcelain is especially popular, as it matches the natural color and appearance of your teeth.

Other reasons why a crown may be recommended include:

  • To protect your tooth following a root canal treatment
  • To anchor a dental bridge
  • To complete a dental implant
  • To improve a misshapen tooth
  • To support a tooth that is fractured
  • To support a large filling in your tooth

Dental Bridge
Dental bridges are prosthetic teeth, designed to replace one or more missing teeth in your mouth. Your dental bridge may be made of the same materials as a dental crown, and acts to hold your remaining teeth in place. This preserves a proper bite as well as closing the gap between your teeth to restore your smile. Bridges are fixed solutions, meaning that they are non-removable, and are anchored to the teeth on either side of the gap by dental crowns placed on the adjoining teeth.
