Crown and Bridgework

Bridges and crowns are permanent prosthetic devices that are cemented onto existing teeth or implants. A dental crown or "cap" is a cover for a damaged/decayed/damaged tooth or a cover for an implant. A dental bridge is used to cover a space if you are missing one or more teeth.

 

In addition to strengthening a damaged tooth, crowns and bridges can be used to improve a tooth's appearance, shape, alignment, and dental bite. Gaps left between your teeth can cause the remaining teeth to shift which can result in a bad bite.
