Crowns are used to replace part of a tooth that has been damaged or decayed. The material used for the crown can be either porcelain or gold, depending on patient preference. Porcelain crowns are also used for aesthetic purposes. Crowns are a great way to improve your bite and restore tooth function.
Bridges are used to fill spaces where a tooth should or used to be. It is important to fill these spaces, because if they are left empty it leaves room in your mouth for your teeth to shift. A bridge uses the two teeth on either side of the empty space as anchors, which holds the false tooth in the space that was once empty. The material used is porcelain, so your bridge will keep your smile aesthetically pleasing.
