What are dental crowns?
A crown covers your existing tooth. Historically, crowns used to be made of gold or silver. A crown is commonly used to prevent further damage to your existing tooth. The benefit of a crown is that it can preserve your existing tooth without having to extract it if there has been damage or degradation to the enamel or casing of the tooth.
Smile Zone Dental will use porcelain crowns that look as real as your existing teeth.
When do I need a crown?
Most cavities can be patched using a simple filling, so a crown would only be used when necessary to seal out extensive damage, but where the existing tooth can still be saved.
What are dental bridges?
A dental bridge fills the space between two teeth. Dental bridges can fill in the place where a tooth was removed or if there is just a natural space between teeth. It is important to remember that these are different from dental implants, as the bridge does not anchor into the jawline.
