Nearly everyone is familiar with porcelain dental crowns and what they do. Crowns are widely used by dentists everywhere because they are a perfect solution for many dental issues. Since crowns are designed to encase a tooth fully, we commonly use them protect teeth that are weakened by extensive decay or dental work. For instance, most people who have had a root canal have a dental crown.
What are Dental Crowns?
We offer state-of-the-art porcelain dental crowns at our Fairfax, VA office because they look natural and blend seamlessly with surrounding teeth. This characteristic allows us to use crowns to perform cosmetic repairs like concealing stained or poorly proportioned teeth and closing uneven gaps between teeth.
We tend to lump crowns and bridges together, but a dental bridge serves an entirely different purpose than a crown. A dental bridge is used to fill the space left by a missing tooth. It is made up of an artificial tooth, or pontic, that is suspended between two crowns that attach to adjacent teeth. A bridge solves the esthetic problem of a missing tooth and also restores function so you can eat comfortably.
