Understanding dental crowns and bridges
Dental crowns and dental bridges have different uses, but their main goal remains the same: to restore strength and health to a damaged or missing tooth. Dental crowns are bonded to an existing tooth that has lost structure and strength due to damage or decay. Dental bridges are a series of crowns that span the gap of a missing tooth and attach to the teeth on either side (abutment teeth). In both cases, we first prepare your tooth or abutment teeth by removing enamel. This ensures that the crown will fit securely over the tooth without appearing bulky or unnatural. Next, we take impressions of the area that are sent to our partner dental lab whose technicians will create the restoration and send it back. At your final appointment, we will verify the fit and color, then bond the dental crown or bridge directly to your tooth. You will walk out of our office with a brand-new tooth!
