What is a crown?

Designed to cover, protect, and reinforce a damaged tooth by maintaining its size, strength, shape, and appearance, dental crowns serve as anchors for a dental bridge and are often made with porcelain or ceramic materials that closely resemble the shade of your natural teeth. Additionally, they can also be placed on top of a dental implant to recreate the look of a natural tooth, restoring functionality to the area.

What is a bridge?

Simply put, a dental bridge is a prosthetic device that fills the gap a missing tooth (or teeth) leaves behind, adding a functional and aesthetic correction to the area.

Made from materials like porcelain, porcelain-fused metals, silver, or gold, the bridge is anchored to dental crowns on one or both sides of the gap, with a replacement prosthetic tooth (also called a pontic) filling in the gap. Once positioned and secured, the bridge is cemented in place.

How long does a crown & bridge last?

With diligent at-home dental care, these devices can last a lifetime!
