What Are Crowns and Bridges

Crowns are complete coverings for teeth. They are made with very strong ceramics and can be both durable and beautiful. Crowns are used to strengthen teeth that have very large fillings, restore teeth that have broken, and cover teeth that have root canals. Today’s ceramic crowns are very natural looking. Older style crowns were made from metal with porcelain baked on top of the metal. These older style crowns often looked dark at the gumline and caused esthetic issues for some people. Ceramic crowns look natural at the gumline.

Bridges are used to replace missing teeth. They are made of strong ceramics that attach to the
tooth in front and behind the space of the missing tooth. The teeth on either side of the space are prepared for crowns. The bridge is secured to these teeth.

We can also attach crowns and bridges to dental implants.

No More Goop

Anyone who has had a dental impression taken remembers how ‘goopy’ it can be. Digital scanning is the modern way to capture dental images. An intra-oral wand is passed over the prepared tooth recording every detail. A digital model is made and sent directly to the lab for fabrication. Digitally scanned restorations fit more snuggly and fit into the bite better than traditional crowns and bridges.

The crowns fit onto natural, healthy teeth to secure the bridge in place.
