Dentists suggest crowns when a tooth is too damaged to stand on its own. For example, if your tooth is severely decayed or chipped, or if you’ve had a root canal procedure, your tooth may need a crown. If you choose a crown, you can save your tooth and make your smile look flawless in the process.
A dental bridge replaces one or more missing teeth. If you have a gap in your smile, a bridge may be a great permanent option to fill in the space—no one will be able to tell the difference. Your dentist will put crowns on the teeth on either side of the gap and attach a false tooth between those crowns, replacing the tooth you lost.
Dental bridges and porcelain dental crowns aren’t for everyone, but for many patients they can do wonders. Contact J R Gassman to get an expert opinion.
