Crowns, also known as caps, completely cover the crown of your tooth. Crowns are placed on back teeth with root canals, some broken teeth, or teeth with a large amount of missing tooth structure. Crowns are typically made of gold, porcelain with gold, or pure porcelain. We will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of these materials and help you decide what material is best for you.
Bridges are crowns connected together, used to fill in missing spaces between teeth.
Crowns & Bridges Success Stories
Our patient came in with multiple fractures on his front crowns (done less than 7 years prior). He was interested in fixing just those teeth, but it was discovered that his bite was off. The patient was biting on his front teeth and putting undue forces on them, without being able to chew properly on his back teeth. After a detailed smile and functional analysis he decided on a plan that would use porcelain crowns to build up his teeth in the back and allow him to chew properly, while giving the front enough room and space to prevent future chipping and breaking. Patient was very satisfied and is continuously showing off his smile.
