Broken tooth – crowns protect weak teeth from breaking, or restore a tooth that is already broken.
Covering – crowns are an excellent way to cover discolored or misshaped teeth or a dental implant.

If you are missing one or multiple teeth, this creates changes in your chewing and speaking. Bridges are used to replace the missing teeth and restore your smile.
Bridges are sometimes referred to as a “fixed partial denture.” A bridge actually bridges the gap where one or more teeth existed previously, with artificial teeth. Materials used to make bridges include alloys, gold, porcelain, or a mixture of these and are attached to the surrounding teeth, supporting the restoration.
Implant bridges attach artificial teeth to the jaw or under the tissue of the gum, as a result, their effectiveness depends upon a strong and healthy foundation. Because of this, it is critical that a patient with missing teeth who has a bridge installed, keep their remaining teeth strong and healthy.
