Crowns and Bridges Rebuild, Repair and Restore Smiles
Crowns and bridges are highly cosmetic restorations that blend naturally with surrounding teeth. These extremely common, routine procedures breathe life back in to your smile when damaged or missing teeth affect your oral health. Crowns and bridges are often grouped together, though they address different needs. Crowns rebuild decayed, worn or root canal-treated teeth. Bridges replace one or more missing teeth after tooth loss. Both restore function, beauty and health for a seamless, gorgeous smile!
Are Crowns or Bridges Right for You?
Crowns are individual restorations that look, feel and act like real teeth. They fully cover and protect your tooth structure, and rise naturally from the gum line for an even, balanced appearance. Teeth with old, failing fillings also benefit from the strength of crowns. These restorations can be made of several types of materials, but are most often custom-stained to blend with your smile. With crowns, you can also eliminate misshapen teeth, dark stains and other cosmetic concerns.
Bridges are comprised of two or more crowns fused into a single unit. The ends of a bridge fit snugly over teeth adjacent to the gap left by missing teeth. These “abutment” teeth are prepared to support the bridge and provide a secure fit. Like individual crowns, bridges restore beauty and function to the smile and are made to match surrounding teeth. They provide a significant boost in self-confidence and improved eating ability. Bridges also keep neighboring teeth from drifting into space left by tooth loss.
