Prosthodontics is a part of dentistry that focuses on the use of dental prosthetics to enhance or replace teeth. There are a few common types of dental prostheses that are used in our practice.
A Dental Bridge bridges gaps between missing teeth, using anchoring teeth as abutment.
Dental Crowns are a prosthetic covering, intended to protect a weak tooth from breaking, as well as a variety of other use-cases; the color will match adjacent teeth.
There are various types of crowns, whether they be alloy or ceramic. A tooth that is broken, misshapen, discolored, or with large decay can benefit from a crown. Crowns are also frequently used to cover dental implants, or endodentially treated teeth. Your dentist will discuss your treatment options, and recommend the best way to enhance or protect the cosmetic aspect of your teeth.
