Dental crowns (sometimes referred to as “caps”) are called as such because they fit over the top of the natural tooth and cover the entire visible surface from view. This restorative approach has a two-pronged effect – not only is the remaining structure well-preserved, but the tooth’s appearance and ability to function is successfully improved as well. There are several reasons why Dr. Ton may recommend a new crown, including:
Dr. Ton is happy to offer proven brands of ceramic and zirconia for the custom creation of your new dental crown, including Emax and BruxZir. The seamless nature of these materials means that no one around you will even realize that your crown-fitted tooth isn’t entirely original!
Dental bridges are designed to replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth that used to appear in a consecutive row. It accomplishes this by literally “bridging” the gap they’ve left with the help of two additional dental crowns. These crowns serve as anchors and are attached to natural teeth on either side, holding the new prosthetic sturdily in place. With the introduction of a bridge, patients can renew their biting strength and also prevent nearby teeth from shifting out of place, which is a common concern following tooth loss.
