What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are artificial teeth used to cover decayed teeth, in order to protect the natural tooth structure from further damage. Crowns are a popular restorative option for patients who have undergone a root canal, or other massive dental procedure because teeth that have been repaired with crowns look and work very much like natural teeth. Crowns are typically made out of porcelain or metal and are used where a tooth cannot be repaired with a filling or any other dental procedure.

Crowns are commonly used for:

  • Fractured teeth
  • Large fillings
  • Decayed teeth
  • Fractured fillings
  • A tooth that has a root canal

What is a dental bridge?

A dental bridge is two or more crowns and a false tooth/teeth in between. The traditional bridge is the most popular type and is usually made of porcelain fused to metal. There are different types of bridges and your dentist will communicate with you the best options for your particular case.

Dental Bridges are mainly used for: 

  • Restore your smile
  • Fill space of missing teeth
  • Prevent remaining teeth from shifting
  • Maintain facial shape
  • Move from a removable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance
