Reconstruct your smile with a crown or bridge
Crowns and bridges are reconstructive restorations that can’t be taken out and cleaned every day, like dentures. Sealed onto current teeth or implants, crowns and bridges are meant to be stable replacements for broken teeth.
There are various types of material for crowns. The dentist can use porcelain or ceramic crowns to match the color of your teeth. Gold, metal, acrylic and ceramic materials are stronger than porcelain, and they are generally recommended for back teeth. Porcelain can also be used with metal substructure for both strength and cosmetic purposes.
There are various materials you can choose for your bridges. Porcelain or ceramic material can be used to match the color or your teeth. The type of bridge you get will depend on where the missing teeth are located, its purpose, cosmetic purposes and price. The natural teeth or implants support the bridge, these are called abutments. A pontic or replacement tooth, is joined to the crowns that protect the abutments.
Sealed onto current teeth or implants, crowns and bridges are meant to be stable replacements for broken teeth.
