Crowns (Caps) / Bridge
A crown is placed to restore a tooth to its ideal shape and size improving its appearance. It can be placed atop a natural tooth or a dental implant (in cases of tooth loss). We use several types of materials when fabricating a crown; this is determined based on individual situations. Tooth loss can affect the alignment of your teeth, the way you eat, and the way you speak.
Two ways to replace a missing tooth/teeth are dental implants and bridges. A dental implant is a biocompatible metal that is surgically placed within the jaw bone. It is then restored with a dental crown as mentioned before.
A bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth (called a pontic), looks great, and literally bridges the gap where one or more teeth may have been.
