Crowns and Bridges

When decay gets too big to support a standard filling, crowns are needed. Other reasons for crowns are fractured teeth and root canals. Anytime a tooth cannot support a standard filling without the risk of fracture, a crown is necessary. Like a small twig void of vital sap, a tooth without the vital pulp becomes brittle. Therefore, root canal teeth are recommended to be crowned. Bridges are simply crowns fused together to span a gap where a tooth is missing or has been removed. Crowns and bridges are great treatment options to maintain the health and appearance of your smile.
