Crowns & Bridges
Dental Crowns are a type of dental restoration that is used consistently to strengthen and protect teeth in trouble. The dental crown is a tooth reinforcement that helps weakened teeth regain strength, stability, and a full range of functions. A crown fits over natural enamel, keeping the tooth safe from further decay or damage.
Crowns can be used on teeth that have lost part of their structure due to tooth decay or on enamel that has broken down, cracked or fractured due to injury or an old filling removal. They can also be used as false teeth during a dental implant, a procedure performed to replace missing teeth. In some cases, dental crowns are used for cosmetic purposes only, bonded to enamel to mask discoloration or correct tooth shape.
