At Designer Family Dentistry, we can provide high-quality, natural-looking crowns and bridges to restore or replace damaged and missing teeth.
In the world of dentistry, crowns and bridges are commonly used to restore or replace damaged and missing teeth. A dental crown is a covering or cap that fits over a decayed or damaged tooth or can be used to replace a missing tooth. Bridges are used to replace a missing tooth or several teeth in a row that are between healthy, natural teeth.
A crown or a “cap” is a tooth-shaped structure used to cover a damaged tooth or replace a missing one. When used to restore a tooth, the crown will “cap” the structure and protect it against injury or damage. If the crown is used to replace a tooth, a dental implant will first be surgically placed in the jaw, and the crown will be attached. Crowns are also be used to support dental bridges.
When placing a crown, we will start by removing a small amount of tooth enamel to allow the crown to fit properly. If the crown is being used to replace a tooth, a dental implant will first be installed.
Bridges are used to replace multiple teeth in a row. A bridge is supported by two dental crowns placed on healthy teeth at either end of the bridge. The replacement teeth will sit in the middle and “bridge” the gap created by missing teeth. With the strong support from the crowns, a dental bridge will stay strong and secure.
