Dental Crown and Dental Bridges
What is a dental crown?
A crown is a protective covering over the damaged area of a tooth. It covers the exposed root surface and helps prevent further damage to the tooth. Crowns are made from a variety of materials, including gold, silver, and dental acrylic. They are custom-made to fit the individual tooth, and are usually attached to the tooth by a set of brackets.
What is a dental bridge?
A bridge is a dental restoration that replaces a tooth’s root structure. A bridge is often used if a tooth is damaged or decayed beyond repair. Bridges are usually constructed using porcelain fused to metal (PFM) or gold alloy materials.
