When Do You Need a Crown or Bridge?

  • Replace a filling when there isn’t enough tooth remaining.

What is a Dental Bridge?

A bridge is a dental restoration appliance that covers the gap left by a missing tooth or teeth. Bridges are affixed to patients’ mouths permanently. In some cases, the structure of the adjacent teeth needs to be removed so that the bridge fits in properly. Bridges can be made of several different materials and can be tailored to fit individual patients. Our full team of dental professionals will be able to take care of all your needs in one location. If you are looking into a bridge as an option, we have you covered!

What is a Dental Crown?

A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a tooth, which helps to strengthen and protect the tooth’s structure. A variety of crowns exist, so it is best to speak to your dentist about the best option for you, but the types range from full porcelain to full metal. Other materials include gold and metal alloys, acrylic and ceramic. These alloys are generally stronger than porcelain and may be recommended for back teeth. Porcelain bonded to a metal shell is often used because it is both strong and attractive.
