Crown & Bridge

A dental crown or “cap” is a covering that fits over a damaged, decayed or unattractive tooth. It can even replace a tooth entirely as part of dental bridgework. If a tooth is missing a significant amount of structure above the gum line, a crown would be the restoration of choice. Crowns strengthen damaged teeth, allowing them to function normally again. When crafted from today's high-tech dental ceramics, crowns are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth. They can even be designed to improve upon a tooth's original appearance. Bridges can also be used to create a lifelike replacement for a missing tooth. Crowns and bridgework require the same conscientious care as your natural teeth. Be sure to brush and floss between all of your teeth — restored and natural — every day to reduce the buildup of dental plaque. When you have crowns, it is even more important to maintain your regular schedule of cleanings here at the dental office. If you have a grinding habit, wearing a night guard would be a good idea to protect your teeth and your investment.
