Dental Crowns & Bridges
A crown (cap) is a restoration that is placed on teeth that have lost a lot of their structure. There are various types of dental crowns, ranging from full porcelain to full metal crowns. Your dentist will explain the advantages and disadvantages of type of dental crown for you and help you make the best decision.
Both dental crowns and bridges are created to match the color, height, texture, and overall appearance of your teeth. Most crowns and bridges will last for life, eliminating the need to replace them unless they fall out or become loose. You may prolong the durability of your crowns and bridges by practicing good oral hygiene and visiting your dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings.
