Crowns and bridges are options for patients who need a little extra help reinforcing and protecting a tooth. Crowns are caps that are custom made to fit over a fractured or damaged tooth, or one that has received root canal therapy, in order to strengthen and support the existing tooth. Crowns are made of porcelain and shaded to match your natural enamel.
Bridges are often used when there is a missing tooth between two healthy teeth. With a crown supporting each end of the bridge, a prosthetic tooth is created and anchored in place. A bridge is an excellent option for restoration when the surrounding teeth are in great condition.
