Crowns and Bridges are procedures used to replace missing or damaged teeth. The goal is to bring back your natural smile and prevent future oral health issues. These type of cosmetic dental procedures can be performed to correct misshaped, discolored, chipped or missing teeth. It also can be used to change the overall shape of teeth – from teeth that are too long or short, have gaps, or simply need to be reshaped.
- Crowns — Synthetic caps, usually made of a material like porcelain that can be placed on the top of a tooth to restore its function and appearance, attach bridges, cover implants, or prevent a cracked tooth from becoming worse.
- Crown lengthening — Performed to reshape gums and bone tissue, and often used to correct a “gummy” smile.
- Bridges — Natural-looking dental appliances that can replace a section of missing teeth and restore the natural contour of your teeth as well as the proper bite relationship between upper and lower teeth. Bridges are sometimes referred to as fixed partial dentures, because they are semi-permanent and are bonded to existing teeth or implants.
