Missing and damaged teeth can cause more than embarrassment. They can lead to gum disease, bite problems, bone loss, speech difficulties and can keep you from eating the foods you love.
A dental bridge will not only restore your smile to a natural-looking appearance, but it will also return it to comfort and function. A bridge is a custom-fit false tooth (or teeth). The bridge is permanently placed between two healthy teeth and is held in place by porcelain crowns on those teeth.
Dental Crowns are used to entirely cover or "cap" a damaged tooth or cover an implant. In addition to strengthening a damaged tooth, a crown can improve a tooth’s appearance. A crown can also be used on top of an implant to provide a tooth-like shape and structure.
