Crowns and Bridges are coverings that fit over teeth and help to cover old fillings and fractured, chipped, or sensitive teeth. In contrast to veneers, crowns are used in cases where the teeth have been severely damaged and there needs to be more extensive restoration done. They also help improve the appearance of natural teeth that are malformed, not positioned correctly, or discolored.
If your filling happens to be larger than your tooth, or if you have recently had a root canal, you may be a prime candidate for a crown or bridge. We will take an impression of your tooth to use that as a mold and will then create custom crowns for your procedure. Depending on the damage that is present, the dentist may decide to create an implant to attach the crown to. Contact us today to learn more about the process!
