What is a crown?A crown is essentially a cap or covering for your tooth. Crowns can be made in many shades so they can blend in with the rest of your teeth. Several different materials can be used to make a crown depending on what best suits the clinical situation.Why would I need a crown?A crown may be recommended for you for one of several possible reasons; a crown can be used to cover and support a tooth, attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from breaking, or a crown can be used to repair a broken tooth. A crown is useful when a tooth has a large cavity and there is not enough healthy tooth left to support a filling. A crown can also be used to improve the appearance of teeth when they are discolored or misshapen.What is a bridge?A dental bridge is used to replace a missing tooth. It is accomplished by using the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth to support an abutment (fake tooth) that takes the place of your missing tooth. Bridges function and look like your natural tooth and are attached to other natural teeth (they are not removeable).Tooth Colored Fillings
What are tooth colored fillings?Tooth colored fillings refers to replacing tooth structure with a material that matches the existing tooth.
Why would I need tooth colored fillings?
When a tooth has a cavity, the unhealthy or soft tooth needs to be removed and replaced to prevent further breakdown of that tooth. The benefit of tooth colored fillings is that they blend in with your existing tooth and no one will even know that you have had a filling
