Crowns (sometimes referred to as “caps” or “jackets”) are restorations that replace and/or rehabilitate the missing or damaged part of the tooth above the gum. A fixed bridge is a replacement of a missing tooth, called a pontic, supported and joined by two or more crowns on each side of the missing tooth.
Crowns are used to restore teeth damaged from decay, trauma, fracture, cracks and abnormal wear. They may be used to cover and protect teeth that are misshaped, discolored, have had root canal treatment, are weakened or to restore teeth replaced with implants.
At Prosthodontics Limited PC, all crowns and bridges are fabricated in our in-house laboratory to provide accurate, custom and appropriate prosthesis made just for you.
Crowns and bridges can be made from gold, a non-gold containing silver colored metal (comparable to stainless steel), porcelain layered over metal or all ceramic lithium disilicate (all white), sometimes called E-max™.
Our staff can help you make the best choice for you.
