Crowns are artificial teeth that go over severely damaged teeth. Crowns are made from a variety of materials that restore the function and appearance of the tooth being restored.
Crowns are created from high-quality ceramics or metals such as dental zirconia or gold to completely change the appearance of a tooth. They are used on teeth that can’t support veneers or those that can’t be saved with fillings or contouring.
Bridges are similar to crowns in appearance, but they are used to replace a tooth that has been lost. Bridges are attached to the natural teeth on either side of the gap left by the missing tooth. Once in place, they restore the appearance of your smile and provide support to your remaining natural teeth.
