Crowns & Bridges
WHAT ARE DENTAL CROWNS?
Crowns are common for mending damaged teeth that are at risk of decay or otherwise damaged. If your tooth is chipped, crowns serve the dual benefit of reinforcing it and protecting it from decay while also restoring the look of the tooth close to its original state. As such, crowns are applied on top of an existing healthy tooth.
Crowns are available in a range of different materials and substances. We’ll help you choose the best option to give you a look that matches your natural teeth and gives you ongoing comfort.
TYPES OF CROWNS
Types of crowns available include:
- Porcelain Crowns: Great for matching the natural color of teeth.
- Ceramic E-Max Crowns: Generally the longest lasting crown available.
- Zirconia Crowns: Very durable yet thin crown option.
- Porcelain-Fused-To-Metal (PFM) Crowns: A strong restorative option, but thicker than other materials.
WHAT ARE DENTAL BRIDGES?
For a permanent solution, we install fixed bridges. However, bridges can also be temporary (often used in the process of installing a dental implant) or removable, depending on the treatment plan.
