Dental crowns can be made of gold, all porcelain, or porcelain over a thin coping of metal. They are used to repair teeth when they become really decayed or fractured. They are fabricated by our dental lab and take about two weeks to make. During these two weeks the patient has a temporary crown placed on the tooth.
Bridges are made of the same material as the crowns. A bridge is used to replace missing teeth in the mouth. It “bridges” the gap from one tooth to the other. A bridge is like having three or more crowns hooked together with a false tooth placed in the space of the missing tooth. Other options for replacing missing teeth include partial dentures and dental implants. Give us a call to see what options are best for you.
