Crown and Bridge

A bridge is fit over the existing teeth.

Crown and bridge restorations are both restorative and cosmetic in nature and are one of many options to treat severely decayed teeth or replace missing teeth. Traditionally, these restorations require 2 or more appointments. The initial appointment involves preparing the tooth (removing tooth structure) so that a crown or bridge (for replacing missing teeth) may be fit over the existing teeth. After preparation, a temporary will be fabricated and an impression will be taken. A dental lab will then make the final restoration out of one or several possible materials before returning the work to be cemented by the dentist. We do our utmost to match these restorations to our patients desires so that both they and we can be pleased with the results obtained. Commonly, crown and bridge restorations are also called caps.
