Crowns & Bridges
Dental crowns are a long-term treatment for replacing missing tooth structure when there is no longer sufficient tooth structure remaining to support a filling. This can be caused by tooth decay, tooth fractures, lost fillings, traumatic injuries, or a combination of these and other factors.
A porcelain crown is placed on an individual tooth, somewhat like a thimble over a finger, so the tooth has to first be prepared prior to the crown being fabricated to insure there is sufficient space for the different materials the crowns are made out of.
Bridges have all the qualities and characteristics of crowns and are employed to replace missing teeth. The remaining teeth on either side of the space are prepared just like crowns are and the laboratory will suspend replacements for the missing teeth from the abutment crowns restoring these teeth
