Porcelain bridges and crowns repair damaged teeth and replace missing teeth. Are your teeth stained, crooked, or chipped? Do your teeth have unsightly gaps between them? Are you missing teeth and considering a complete “Smile Makeover”?
Porcelain crowns and bridges look like natural teeth and can improve your smile by:
• replacing missing teeth,
• filling unsightly gaps and spaces between your teeth,
• repairing small cracks and chips in your teeth,
• and whitening teeth that have severe discoloration or dullness
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a tooth. It is meant to cover the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance. Crowns fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line when cemented into place.
Crowns are used to hold weak, broken or cracked teeth together to avoid further fracturing. Crowns are also used to support large fillings, attach a bridge, or cover discolored or deformed teeth. Crowns may also be placed over dental implants. Call today

Dental bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth in your mouth. Dental bridges are fixed, in that they are cemented on the supporting teeth, or in some cases fixed on the dental implant that has been placed next to the missing teeth.
A bridge is made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap. The two anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth. There is also a false tooth or teeth in between. These false teeth are called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants. Contact us
