A dental crown can be used to do a wide variety of things, such as enhance a tooth cosmetically or restore it structurally. It is a tooth-shaped cap that fits over the top and completely encases a damaged tooth. Dental crowns can be made of a variety of materials, including gold, a metal alloy, porcelain-fused to metal, and all-porcelain or zirconia. All-porcelain zirconia crowns are the best for mimicking a natural tooth in both look and strength, so we prefer to use them whenever we can.
A fixed dental bridge is how we can quickly replace a single missing tooth or a few in a row. It consists of a prosthetic tooth or teeth attached to dental crowns on either side of the space in the smile. In addition to restoring a smile’s appearance, it can also prevent issues associated with missing teeth, such as shifting and crowding teeth.
Both treatments can be completed over the course of two easy visits and supply decades of daily benefits. To learn more about them or schedule an appointment, please contact us today.
