CROWNS & BRIDGES

Susie Shin Dental Care

A crown is used to replace all, or part of a tooth.

Also called a “cap”, a crown can be the solution for a number of dental problems: A broken tooth, a tooth with a large chip or broken filling, a big cavity, after having a root canal, or to go on top of a dental implant. A veneer is a thin tooth-colored shell that is cemented to the outer surface of the tooth. Crowns are stronger than veneers and fillings, so a crown may be recommended in certain instances.

A bridge is a series of connected crowns used to replace one or more missing teeth. Crowns are made to cover teeth on either side of a space, and are connected to a “fake” tooth that sits in the space. Crowns, bridges, and veneers can also be used to dramatically improve the appearance of your teeth. People often dislike their stained or crooked teeth, but may not want to have braces or do teeth whitening.

Crowns, bridges and veneers can be made to change the shape, contour and color of your teeth giving you the smile you’ve always wanted.
