Injury, decay, or gum disease can cause tooth loss allowing for teeth to shift, move, or flare out. This can create unwanted spaces which can alter the look of your smile, jawline, and face. Cosmetic dental treatments, such as crowns and bridges, can be used to fill the space helping to prevent the loss of bone structure in your jaw while also restoring your healthy smile.
What are crowns?
Crowns, also known as caps, are specifically designed to fit over top of a damaged tooth. Dental crowns can be made from porcelain, stainless steel, zirconia, titanium, or gold and are custom-fitted to your tooth, so that it will look beautiful and function properly.
What are bridges?
Bridges can help close the gap left by one to three missing teeth by using a combination of artificial teeth and crowns placed over existing teeth. Using a dental bridge to fill gaps left by missing teeth can help restore your smile, as well as redistribute the workload amongst your teeth more evenly. Since there are several different kinds of bridges, we will help you select the best procedures for your unique situation.
