In the world of cosmetic dentistry, crowns and bridges are two of the most popular and effective ways of quickly, dramatically boosting your smile factor. These tools can also help to improve your overall oral health. Whether you have experienced the full loss of a tooth or simply decay or damage in one area of a tooth, crowns and bridges can safely restore the appearance and functionality of your natural teeth.  

What Can a Dental Crown Do For Me?

Think of a dental crown as a ‘cap’ that sits on top of and around an existing tooth in order to protect it, improve its appearance and prevent it from enduring further damage or infection. Dental crowns can be very useful after root canals in order to provide a final layer of security and protection around the affected tooth. If a tooth has been severely broken, as in trauma, or is in a state of decay, dental crowns are helpful in covering up the existing damage.  

What Can a Dental Bridge Do For Me?

 A dental bridge, on the other hand, is a porcelain structure that is made from a crown on either side and a full-sized replacement tooth in between them. These bridges can safely and effectively replace a whole tooth that is absent, either from trauma or from being pulled as a result of decay or infection.
