Porcelain crowns and dental bridges can provide durable, natural-looking solutions for a number of common dental issues. These treatments can restore functionality, strength, and appearance for missing, damaged, or decayed teeth.
A porcelain crown is a tooth-colored, custom-made “cap” that is bonded to an existing tooth. A crown is typically placed over a decayed tooth following a root canal, and it is often used to add structural support and enhanced aesthetics to a damaged tooth. Crowns also serve as the final touches to dental implants.
A dental bridge is designed to fill gaps where there are missing teeth. Dental bridges are composed of one or more artificial teeth that are bonded to porcelain crowns placed on the adjacent teeth. This missing teeth replacement option can restore the ability to bite, eat, drink, and speak normally, not to mention its aesthetic benefits. Bridges can be good alternatives to dental implants for patients who might not be candidates for that procedure.
Both porcelain crowns and dental bridges offer a natural-looking, long-term option to improve the form and function of your teeth.
