Bridges and Crowns

Restore Your Teeth from Ear to Ear

Dental CrownThere are a host of cosmetic solutions to missing or broken teeth, so there’s no reason to settle for a smile you’re unhappy with. Two of those options are crowns and bridges. These solutions differ from dentures in that they are permanently fixed in place.

When Do You Need a Bridge or Crown?

A bridge or crown can serve the following functions:

  • Replace a large filling when there’s isn’t enough tooth remaining.
  • Protect a weak tooth from fracturing.
  • Cover a discolored or poorly structured tooth.
  • Cover a dental implant.
  • Restore a damaged tooth.

What is a Dental Bridge?

This dental appliance replaces a missing tooth by binding permanently in the mouth using adjacent teeth or dental implants to stay put. In certain instances, dentists will reduce the size of your natural teeth so that they will fit properly in your mouth. These custom-made appliances are sometimes called fixed partial dentures.

What is a Dental Crown?

These tooth-shaped caps fit directly over your tooth or dental implant, helping to protect and reinforce your smile. These are sometimes used to combat larger cavities that could compromise the health of your tooth. GVR Dental and Orthodontics uses porcelain crowns, or crowns made entirely of metal. Your dentist will review your choices with you and help you select the one that works best for you.
