Dental Crowns and Bridges in Aurora, CO
Our Dental Crowns and Bridges
A crown is a hollow prosthetic that mimics the look and shape of your natural teeth. The crown is placed over a natural tooth to provide extra protection and strength.
Crowns are also common after a root canal treatment or to replace a filling, or if the natural tooth is cracked or weak. Dental crowns also secure a bridge or cover dental implants or discolored, unshapely teeth.
A bridge is great for your smile if you have one or more teeth missing. If left alone, gaps in your teeth will cause the surrounding teeth to rotate and shift, and so a bridge of prosthetic teeth fills the gap. Crowns serve as caps over the natural teeth on either side of the gap, and then the bridge attaches to these crowns.
Both crowns and bridges can be made of a variety of materials. The most common material is a tooth-colored porcelain so that the prosthetic blends in nicely with the surrounding natural teeth. Ceramic, gold alloys, or base metal alloys are also available, depending on the location in the mouth and on the patient’s specific needs.
