Dental Crowns and Bridges
Dental Crowns in Fanwood
Crowns and bridges are among the most popular restorative dental treatments. They provide strength and esthetics by utilizing the strongest and most esthetic materials. We offer these treatments at South Ave Family Dentistry to help our patients reach their goals and maintain outstanding smiles.
A dental crown is best described as a “cap” that completely covers the whole tooth which has been heavily damaged or restored. The strength of the crowns prevents the tooth from further physical damage, thus greatly improving the longevity of the tooth. Furthermore, since a crown covers the entire visible area of a tooth, it can give a damaged tooth an attractive new look.
Dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth by attaching the artificial teeth to the crowns on the neighboring teeth. Bridges are also called fixed partial dentures as they are fixed in your mouth and do not need to be removed throughout their lifespan.
