A dental CROWN is a type of dental restoration that permanently caps a tooth and is typically needed when a large cavity has threatened that tooth.
It is important to maintain proper dental hygiene with the crown once the procedure is completed. This helps to prevent gum disease and any future infection with the tooth. Given proper care, your crown can last a lifetime.
A BRIDGE is a device that fills a space where a tooth previously occupied. They are typically warranted to prevent shifting of the teeth that can lead to bite or jaw problems or used to keep the integrity of existing teeth and help maintain a healthy smile.
