Crowns & Bridges
A crown is a dental prosthetic that is put over a tooth to protect it, or to restore the tooth back to its original shape. A crown may be needed for many reasons from a large amount of decay covering the tooth, teeth breaking, or a root canal being preformed. The crown is placed along the gum line of the tooth and cemented. Once placed the tooth should look and feel much like the original tooth once did. .
A bridge is made up of two or more crowns acting as anchors to a tooth or teeth that are missing. This connects the teeth together with crowns on opposite sides of the missing teeth with fixed prosthetic teeth to filling the voids.
