Crowns & Bridges

What are Dental Crowns?

A dental crown is an artificial tooth cap. Usually, it’s used to cover a damaged or broken tooth. However, crowns can’t be used on a missing tooth.

A damaged tooth can continue to cause harm by not allowing you to chew. In this case, you may need a dental crown. The crown can protect and strengthen your teeth. It can also bring back your oral health and beauty.



Benefits of Dental Crowns

Protects Your Teeth

You may have weak or damaged teeth and having a crown can protect your natural teeth from getting more damaged.

Halts Further Tooth Damage

Cavities can do irreparable damages to your tooth. Your tooth can also have fractures. A crown can halt this process and your tooth faces no further damage.

Beauty in Your Smile

Porcelain or ceramic crown can hide a discolored tooth. Naturally, crowns help you to smile with confidence.

Helps With Chewing

Having a cavity or a damaged tooth can make chewing extremely difficult and painful, so having a dental crown can make it easier to eat regular foods and chew normally.

Painless Procedure

Putting a crown is a relatively painless procedure and with the right dentist, you will feel comfortable and relaxed throughout your procedure. A crown will make you feel so much more comfort in daily activities.




What are Dental Bridges?

A dental bridge is used to fill the gap of a missing tooth. But, bridges can also replace multiple teeth. In reality, a dental bridge uses a false tooth (pontic) to bridge the gap between two teeth. It adds an artificial tooth onto a dental implant to replace many missing teeth at once. 

There are multiple types of bridges (Traditional bridges, Implant-supported bridges, Maryland bridges, and more). Porcelain or gold is used to make great quality bridges. Even, other metal alloys are also used to manufacture a bridge. 



Why Do You Need Dental Bridges?


To Improve Your Speech


A missing tooth or a couple of missing teeth can disturb your pronunciation. You may not be able to deliver your speech naturally. 

A dental bridge can fill the gap and it can help you to speak properly.

To Bite and Chew


Without teeth, your can neither bite nor chew, and when you try to, you can harm your gums or cause more of a strain on the teeth surrounding the missing ones. A dental bridge is made of long lasting materials, resulting in your teeth becoming stronger. You get back full function of biting and chewing without worrying about harming the rest of your mouth, and gain the comfort you once had.

To Smile With Confidence


Having missing or damaged teeth can cause insecurities and discomfort in everyday life. Being able to smile without feeling insecure about the way your smile may look can boost your confidence and allow for more opportunities without feeling like you are being held back.

To Restore Your Natural Face Shape


A couple of missing teeth can damage your jaw bone structure. Thus, your face may lose its shape. But, a dental bridge can restore your face’s natural shape. 

Your jaw bone undergoes no changes and you retain your face structure.
