Restore the shape, size, appearance, and even strength of your tooth with a dental crown. A crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over your tooth and cemented into place. It fully encases the entire visible portion of your tooth that is positioned at and above the gum line.
Bridges and crowns often go hand in hand. A dental bridge is made up of two crowns that anchor to the natural teeth or dental implants located on either side of a gap left by a missing tooth. The dental bridge literally bridges the gap created by one or more missing teeth by using a false tooth or teeth to fill in the space. The false teeth are called pontics and are made from various materials including gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of all these materials.
