Crown and bridge treatment may be necessary if you have lost teeth or have a fractured or broken tooth. A crown – or cap – is a tooth-like covering placed over an existing tooth to give added support and protection. The crown will be shaped to fit your mouth, as well as color-matched to fit your appearance.
A bridge is a custom device anchored to neighboring teeth that replaces one or more missing teeth. The teeth on either side of the missing tooth/teeth will be fit with crowns (the anchor) to hold the replacement tooth/teeth in place.
Crowns and bridges are important to maintain both appearance and function, as well as prevent other teeth from shifting around the missing tooth, periodontal disease, or a breakdown of bone structure.
