CROWN & BRIDGES
Crowns and bridges are both fixed prosthetic devices that are cemented with permanent cement onto existing teeth and/or implants.
Crowns are commonly used to cover a weak or damaged tooth or to cover an implant.
Bridges, however, are commonly used if you’re missing one or more teeth. They cover the space where the teeth are missing and are cemented to natural teeth or implants surrounding the space.
Crowns and Bridges are generally recommended by your Dentist to:
Replace large fillings and missing teeth
Protect a weak tooth from fracturing
Cover a dental implant
Cover a discolored or poorly shaped tooth
Cover/Protect a tooth that has had root canal treatment
