A Dental Crown is a cap placed over the top of the tooth. It may be used to restore the original shape, size and function of the tooth that has been chipped or worn down or to strengthen a cracked or weakened tooth.
- Protecting a weak tooth.
- Strengthening a tooth following a root canal treatment.
- Repairing the tooth damage that is too severe for a white filling.
A Dental Bridge is used to replace a missing tooth when you still have some natural teeth remaining for support.
Crowns and Bridges look just like your regular teeth and no one but you and your dentist will know which tooth is yours and which one is artificial.
