Crowns and bridges are regarded as two of the most aesthetic and fixed options for replacing badly damaged or missing teeth.
Crowns: When a tooth is severely damaged or broken, a crown is built around the remaining healthy tooth structure. Crowns are used for both function and fashion. They completely encircle the affected tooth to provide protection from daily wear and tear but also to provide enhanced aesthetic value to your smile!
Bridges: Bridges are used to fill the cap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is composed of two or more crowns on either side of the gap. These two teeth are called abutment teeth with a false tooth in between known as a pontic. Either natural teeth or dental implants support bridges.
Porcelain bridges are designed to look as natural as possible.
Porcelain bridges generally take 2 weeks from start to finish while a surgical implant takes approximately 1-1.5 years.
Many problems may arise if a tooth is left missing. The main concern is the buildup of bacteria that can form in that space.
Most of our treatments are covered by a majority of insurance companies. For a more detailed explanation of your coverage please call your service provider.
