Crowns and Bridges

Dental crowns and bridges have been used by dentists from longer times, but that’s true they are such effective treatments for damaged or missing teeth. From start to finish, receiving a crown or bridge could take about two weeks to complete. 

Crowns are made from hard porcelain material used to both repair and protect damaged teeth. When a tooth has a large filling, it may still be able to survive, but could easily be damaged if you bite into something particularly hard. This tooth can be protected with a clean, white and durable crown.

Bridges are used as replacements for missing teeth. A bridge is actually made up of two crowns that will fit over healthy teeth and one or two replacement teeth between the crowns. Your new bridge will be tried out and any needed adjustments will be made. When they fit and your bite are perfect, the bridge will be cemented into place.
