How do crowns and bridges work?

Dental crowns work alone or in conjunction with dental implant posts or dental bridges. We also use dental crowns across dentistry because they are versatile and serve a variety of purposes.

A dental crown provides support to a tooth compromised by root infection or trauma. Your dentist in El Dorado Hills, CA caps the weak tooth to create a buffer between the tooth and your bite.

A dental crown also conceals tooth flaws like chips, discoloration, small gaps between teeth, and shape abnormalities.

In implant dentistry, a dental crown tops a dental implant post to complete the implant process.

A dental crown also works in harmony with a dental bridge.

A dental bridge is a replacement tooth or teeth suspended between dental crowns—one on either side. These crowns top healthy teeth and allow the restorations to fill your smile gap.

This is an ideal tooth replacement solution because it restores the look and function of your smile. It is also an affixed appliance, which makes it stable and dependable.
