Crowns & Bridges
Crowns, also known as caps are coverings on top of natural teeth. They serve many purposes, including strengthening and improving the appearance of discolored or poorly shaped natural teeth, supporting a tooth with a large filling, protecting a weak tooth from breaking, and restoring teeth that are already broken.
A bridge is a fixed (or cemented) appliance that can be looked at as multiple crowns connected together, “bridging” a gap between healthy teeth where a tooth or teeth were lost. Bridges are permanent fixtures and do not need to be removed.
