Dental crowns, also known as crown restorations or caps, are artificial teeth that we fit into your gums. These are made of durable, glossy, attractive porcelain and can be used to replace the portion of your teeth above the gumline that have succumbed to decay and also placed atop dental implant posts. After we’ve placed them, your dental crowns can permanently recapture the natural appearance, the feel, and the function of your real teeth.
Dental bridges incorporate dental crowns but are different in one very significant respect: With dental bridges the crowns are not attached to your gums but are instead supported by adjoining teeth using a “bridge” that holds them in the gaps between the missing teeth. Dental bridges typically consist of two or more crown restorations, enabling us to replace multiple teeth more quickly. Once we place your dental bridges here in our Tavares, FL office, your smile will once again look like a full set of natural, healthy teeth!
