Crown and Bridges
When your tooth is weakened due to decay, fracture, or grinding, a crown can repair the damage and protect the tooth for the future. Crowns and bridges are similar restorations, though they serve different purposes. A dental crown protects and repairs a natural tooth that has sustained damage from chewing, teeth grinding, decay, or an accident.
A fixed dental bridge is a series of specialized crowns designed to replace a missing tooth. Two crowns will hold an artificial tooth in place, filling the gap in your smile..
