Restore Damaged Teeth

Dental Crowns

Modern dental crowns are made out of porcelain and they are designed to completely cover up a damaged tooth, restoring its shape, structure, and natural function. By covering up the entire tooth down to the gumline, a crown helps prevent future damage. Crowns are most often used to cover up teeth that have been damaged by tooth decay or a cavity that is too large to be treated with a filling. They can also be used to repair teeth that have been cracked, chipped, or otherwise damaged in an oral injury.

Crowns & Bridges

How They Work Together

Fixed bridges consist of two crowns that attach to healthy abutment teeth on either side of your missing tooth, and these are used to suspend a false tooth in the gap. Cantilever bridges also make use of dental crowns. They are attached to a single healthy tooth using a crown, suspending one or more false teeth to cover a gap. This type of bridge is often used when there are not two healthy abutment teeth next to your missing teeth. 

Some types of bridges, like a Maryland bridge, do not require crowns to be attached to abutment teeth, but instead use metal “wings” and a framework that are bonded to your adjacent teeth to support a crown. 

For more information about each type of dental bridge and to determine which one may be right for you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Reyes or Dr. Bonifacio at Rio Vista Family Dentistry & Orthodontics.
