Dental Crowns & Bridges
Restorative dentistry includes techniques that are used by dental professionals to strengthen, save, or replace your teeth. Dr. Tang’s restorative dentistry treatments, including dental bridges and crowns, will help you maintain the look and function of a natural smile.
What is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped covering that fits over the visible portion of a tooth. A dental crown can strengthen a tooth, as well as improve its shape and size.
Uses for a Dental Crown
Our attractive porcelain dental crowns can function in the following ways:
- Protect teeth that are weak from decay
- Hold together cracked teeth
- Restore a broken tooth
- Build up a tooth that is worn down from teeth grinding
- Improve misshapen teeth
- Improve discolored teeth
- Support a tooth with a large filling
Dental crowns can do all of this, as well as make other various cosmetic enhancements. Crowns will make each tooth look better while they fortify and strengthen it against further damage.
What is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge includes two dental crowns and a pontic, or replacement tooth. The dental crowns are placed over the natural teeth on either side of a gap. The gap is filled with the pontic.
