Crowns & Bridges
If you’ve severely damaged or lost teeth due to injury, accident, or gum disease, we can repair or replace them with a crown or a bridge to restore functionality, to properly support your bite, and to allow you to chew well and smile confidently. Bridges fill the gap between missing teeth to prevent movement and stabilize your bite, improving chewing and speech. They also function as an internal structure for your face, rounding out sunken cheeks to give you a more youthful appearance.
What the difference between a Crown and a Bridge?
A crown protects and restores a tooth's aesthetic value, strength, and chewing function. Bridges are used to replace the space that missing teeth have left behind, and they are permanently secured to the adjacent teeth by crowns, filling the gap. Without hooks or clasps, bridges provide a solid solution to missing teeth and look completely natural. Plus, they help restore functionality, allowing you to care for your teeth like you did before the procedure.
