Crowns, Bridges, and Veneers
If you have a damaged or decayed tooth, our dentists can help you choose the best solution. Crowns and bridges are custom-fitted tooth prosthetics that function and look like natural, healthy teeth. Veneers are a less invasive alternative, but may only be a solution for those with slight tooth damage or discoloration.
A crown, otherwise known as a cap, is custom-fitted to your bite and is placed over your natural tooth or dental implant. We recommend this procedure for those who have an intact tooth without root decay. The tooth needing a crown may be decayed or damaged, but the damage and decay will be resolved prior to placing the crown
To replace a missing tooth that has neighboring teeth with decay and/or large fillings, or a tooth that has been missing for a long time. The space will be "bridged" by two adjacent teeth that will have crowns that hold a false tooth or "pontic" to replace the missing one.
If you’re looking to cosmetically correct or enhance the appearance of one or more teeth, we suggest veneers. They are very thin, porcelain or resin shells that you can customize in color and shape.
