CROWNs AND Bridges
A bridge is a cosmetic dental device that replaces a missing tooth. As the name suggests, a bridge spans the space between two existing teeth. Essentially, this cosmetic restorative dental product is a false tooth that is anchored by the teeth on either side of the gap. Bridges are generally made of gold, porcelain fused to metal, or all-ceramic material.
The oral work involved with a bridge generally includes two or three visits. Bridges are just one of many cosmetic dental services that can brighten your smile.
A crown is a permanent covering that is custom fitted to rebuild and protect a tooth that has been damaged by a large cavity or cracking. Crowns are most often made out of either porcelain or gold. Porcelain has the most natural appearance, although it is often slightly less durable than gold. For teeth that are badly broken, crowns rebuild the tooth to its natural shape so you can chew comfortably and smile with confidence.
