Dental crowns are a well-known solution for restoring a damaged tooth to its correct shape, size, and function.
A crown covers the visible portion of your natural tooth all the way down to the gum line and may be recommended for several reasons. If you have a large filling that needs to be repaired or replaced or if your tooth is weak or fractured, a porcelain crown might be your best option.
Your dental crown is made from porcelain or porcelain fused to metal (PFM) and crafted in our own dental lab. A porcelain crown not only restores your tooth to its appropriate shape and size, but it also provides the added support necessary to distribute the force from chewing placed on your other teeth.
Since the gap left by a missing tooth can cause the remaining teeth to shift, it is important to replace the missing tooth or teeth as soon as possible. Fixed bridges are one of the solutions for doing so.
Bridges consist of an artificial tooth and supporting crowns on adjacent teeth. Traditional bridges are usually made from porcelain fused to metal or ceramics.
An alternative to dental bridges are dental implants with crowns.
