Here’s what you should know:

  • Dental Crowns: A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap placed over a damaged or decayed tooth to restore function and appearance. It can also protect a tooth after a root canal or cover a dental implant. Crowns are customized to match the size, shape, and color of your natural teeth, and can be made of porcelain, ceramic, or metal.
  • Dental Bridges: A dental bridge is a prosthetic device that replaces one or more missing teeth. It includes one or more artificial teeth called pontics, anchored to adjacent teeth with dental crowns. Bridges are custom-made to match your natural teeth using materials such as porcelain, ceramic, or metal.
  • Benefits: Dental crowns and bridges can restore dental function, improve appearance, and prevent further damage or decay. They can also help maintain tooth alignment, prevent surrounding teeth from shifting, and improve overall dental health.
  • Care and Maintenance: Dental crowns and bridges can last for many years with proper care and maintenance, including regular brushing and flossing, avoiding hard or sticky foods, and seeing the dentist for regular checkups and cleanings.
