Damaged Teeth can Damage Confidence
At Greeley Dental Health, we understand how traumatic it can be to have missing or broken teeth. Luckily, we offer restorative dentistry such as bridges and crowns–a permanent solution to alleviate your tooth troubles.
Crowns and Bridges: An Attractive Option
Bridges and crowns may be recommended for several purposes:
- Cover a dental implant
- Cover a poorly structured, damaged, or discolored tooth
- Beautify a deeply discolored tooth
- Keep a weak tooth from fracturing
- Replace a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth remaining
- Finish teeth treated with root canal therapy
What is a Bridge?
Bridges are a form of tooth replacement that is joined to adjacent teeth or dental implants, bridging the gap caused by missing teeth. Usually, some tooth structure will be removed by the dentist in order for the bridge to feel comfortable. Bridges are often composed of different materials, such as porcelain, gold, or alloys.
What is a Crown?
Dental crowns or caps, often used interchangeably, refer to a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over an unhealthy tooth caused by a large cavity or to cover dental implants. Crowns and caps are generally made from materials such as porcelain or metal.
