A crown is a cap placed over an existing tooth to strengthen, protect and support teeth that have fractured, received root canal therapy, or are too damaged to be filled. Porcelain crowns cover the tooth’s surface and are expertly matched to the shade of your natural teeth.
Bridges are a treatment used to replace missing teeth, when the neighboring teeth are healthy. A bridge utilizes a crown on each end, which is placed on the tooth on each side of the gap. A prosthetic tooth replaces the missing teeth and is anchored by the supporting crowns.
