Crowns & Bridges
This treatment is often indicated when restoring broken teeth, teeth with large defective restorations, or teeth that have had Root Canals. Crowns are made of ceramics or metals or a combination of both. The crown fits over the tooth (like a cap) which protects the tooth from fracturing by distributing chewing forces evenly over the entire surface of the tooth. Since the materials we use are so life-like, we sometimes use crowns to actually improve smiles!
We are excited to be able to offer SAME-DAY-CROWNS with CEREC technology!
When a patient is missing one or more teeth, a bridge is often used to restore the appearance and function. This treatment involves crowning teeth adjacent to the missing area and connecting them to a replacement tooth/teeth.
