Crowns, Bridges and Veneers

Patients suffering from a damaged, irregular-shaped or missing tooth can benefit from a crown, bridge and veneers. Crowns and bridges are custom-fit tooth prosthetics that function and look like natural, healthy teeth. Veneers are a less invasive and cosmetic option for discolored and uneven teeth. 

Crowns

The purpose of a crown, also known as a cap, is to keep a compromised tooth from fracturing or breaking apart. The crown is custom-fit and placed over your natural tooth or dental implant - covering the entire visible portion of a tooth.


Common uses for crowns:

  • Tooth with large fillings or cavities

  • Tooth with a fracture or missing piece

  • Tooth treated with a root canal

  • Tooth being replaced by an implant


Bridges

The purpose of a bridge is to replace one or more missing teeth. A bridge is a tooth prosthetic that fills in the missing space by attaching to healthy neighboring teeth. Not only does the bridge replace missing teeth, it supports and protects the connected teeth.


Common uses for a bridge:

  • Replacing one or more missing teeth

  • When a permanently attached solution is preferred over one that can be removed


Veneers

The purpose of a veneer is to correct or enhance the appearance of one or more teeth. Veneers are thin, ceramic or resin overlays that can be customized in color and shape. They are non-invasive and are a permenant cosmetic solution.


Common uses for veneers:

  • Chipped or broken teeth

  • Misshaped or irregular teeth

  • Teeth that do not respond to traditional whitening treatments

  • Improve the appearance of otherwise healthy teeth
