CROWNS (also called CAPS) are strong coverings that fit over the outer surface of the tooth. They essentially replace the original enamel shell to restore and protect your tooth when it is badly damaged. Crowns may also be used to make teeth look better. Most of the crowns we make are tooth-colored and are made right in our office during your appointment, saving you another visit and having to deal with a temporary crown(s) for a period of weeks. Not all teeth can be restored this way.
Your comfort and satisfaction are our top priority. You will likely be numb during your crown appointment and have the ability to watch a movie or listen to music. If you need a crown, we will do our very best to answer all your questions before we begin any treatment.
BRIDGES fill in the space of a missing tooth or teeth using a crown on the tooth or teeth next to the space for support. They are fixed into the mouth and designed not to come out, unlike a partial denture.
IMPLANT CROWNS AND BRIDGES use dental implants to gain their support and function. See the IMPLANT link in the "drop down menu" above to learn more about implants.
Crowns and Bridges, like any other dental restoration, do not last forever. Consistent home care and healthy habits along with regular check-ups and cleanings help prolong your dental work.
