Dental crowns are designed to fit over a single tooth, protecting its natural form and restoring its vitality. They have a lot of versatility, allowing Dr. Craig and to recommend them as a solution in several situations, including:
- To correct a cavity that’s too large for a typical filling.
- To strengthen a tooth that’s become excessively weakened.
- To rebuild a tooth that’s been injured or structurally damaged.
- To correct purely aesthetic concerns like misshapenness.
- To restore a tooth treated with root canal therapy.
- To restore a tooth with a placed dental implant.
Dental bridges consist of multiple fused-together crowns, all designed to replace one or more missing teeth in a row on a single arch. Many patients who find themselves dissatisfied with the looseness of traditional partial dentures enjoy how sturdy bridges are in comparison. This is because additional crowns are placed on either side of the gap over healthy teeth to “anchor” the restoration in place, creating a lifelike feel.
