A crown, or cap, is a covering for your tooth that replaces worn, broken or decayed areas of the tooth. Crowns provide strength, durability and function and may also be used to cosmetically enhance your smile. Crowns are most often used to restore and protect teeth that no longer have sufficient tooth structure to support a traditional filling. A bridge is a dental restoration that is designed to replace one or more missing teeth. The teeth on both sides of the missing tooth space are prepared for crowns to anchor the bridge, and then, a custom fabricated restoration (bridge) is made and secured in place. These are made from dental materials that may include semi-precious or precious metals, porcelain, zirconia or a combination of these.

Our experienced dentist will examine your teeth and mouth during your initial consultation to determine if a crown or a bridge is the right option for you. We will discuss your oral health and treatment options with you before designing a treatment plan that meets your needs.
