Crown & Bridge Treatment

Crown and bridge treatment is a long-term method of replacing missing teeth.

A crown is placed on an individual tooth, where there is no sufficient tooth structure remaining to place a filling.

A bridge is applied when in space where one or more teeth have been lost. The teeth on either ends are crowned, and are referred to as abutments. The false teeth in a bridge that join the abutments are termed as pontics. Crowns and bridges are mostly manufactured from superior materials such as gold, porcelain, or a combination of metal fused to porcelain.

Both appearance and the function are considered when selecting the material that is best for you.
