Don’t Angst Over Damaged Teeth
If you’re dealing with missing or broken teeth, restorative dentistry may be the answer. Bridges and crowns are a permanent solution to fixing this issue and Advantage Dental Group can help.
How Do I Determine if I Need a Bridge or Crown?
Bridges and crowns may be recommended by your dentist for the following reasons:
- Cover a poorly structured, damaged, or discolored tooth
- Keep a weak tooth from fracturing
- Replace a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth remaining
- Finish teeth treated with root canal therapy
- Beautify a deeply discolored tooth
- Cover a dental implant
What is a Bridge?
Bridges are a form of tooth replacement that is joined to adjacent teeth or dental implants, bridging the gap caused by missing teeth. Usually, some tooth structure will be removed by the dentist in order for the bridge to feel comfortable. Bridges are often composed of different materials such as porcelain, gold, or alloys.
What is a Crown?
Dental crowns or caps, often used interchangeably, refer to a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over an unhealthy tooth caused by a large cavity or to cover dental implants. Crowns and caps are generally made from materials such as porcelain or metal.

Our patient had been wearing a temporary partial for years and wanted a permanent replacement. In addition to replacing the tooth, a more esthetic outcome was achieved because the first crown was too long. Notice the even, natural shade and shape. Now they are ready to smile!
