A crown is a tooth-shaped restoration that surrounds all sides of a natural tooth and ends under the gum line. A crown strengthens a tooth. Thanks to new technology, ceramic or porcelain crowns look better than your own teeth! This is because the distinctive dark metal line of old-style crowns has been eliminated. Ceramic crowns are now metal-free and so natural looking they could be mistaken for real teeth.
Designed to replace missing teeth, a fixed bridge is used in conjunction with adjacent teeth and/or implants to support natural looking teeth that rest in open spaces. A fixed bridge can replace as few as one missing tooth or as many as ten.
