Crown And Bridges


Crowns Bridgeport CT & Bridgeport CT Dental Office

The crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of the tooth that lies at and above the gum line.

A crown is a cap made from various materials suitable for withstanding the biting and chewing forces that a normal tooth must endure. It is placed over a tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and/or to improve its appearance.  We are highly reviewed among other crowns Bridgeport CT Dentists.

 

Why Is a Dental Crown Needed?
A dental crown may be needed to rebuild broken or decayed teeth or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth. To restore a damaged, broken or severely worn down tooth. To cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't much of the tooth left. To secure a dental bridge in place. To cosmetically improve the appearance of misshaped or severely discolored teeth. To cover a dental implant 

A DENTAL BRIDGE is an appliance made to permanently fit between two porcelain crowns.  The bridge fills the gap left by one or more missing teeth. Today, we refer to this as a, FIXED BRIDGE. Think of a FIXED BRIDGE as a permanent bridge which cannot be removed the same way you remove (take out and put back on) partial dentures.
