What is a Dental Crown?

Made from materials that closely resemble the appearance of natural teeth (porcelain or ceramic are most commonly used), dental crowns cover a damaged tooth and strengthen it in the process.

During dental crown and bridge treatment, crowns are positioned on the adjacent teeth surrounding the missing tooth and serve as an anchor for the prosthetic bridge that spans the gap. Crowns are also placed on top of a dental implant to recreate the appearance of a natural tooth.

What is a Dental Bridge?

A prosthetic device that fills the space a missing tooth (or teeth) leaves behind, dental bridges Washington DC also help prevent neighboring teeth from shifting or rotating, which can lead to problems with bite, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, and gum disease.

These components are securely affixed to natural teeth crowned with dental crowns or to dental implants situated on one or both sides of the gap.
