Crowns or caps are used to cover the part of the tooth above the gum. They can be made of a variety of materials such as porcelain, gold or a combination. Crowns are typically used to protect teeth from fracture, protect root canal treated teeth, or improve the appearance of the tooth.
If a crown/cap has come loose or you feel as though it is coming loose. Bring in all the pieces you have as we may be able to re-cement or fix it. Typically, crowns come loose as the tooth underneath becomes weakened or decayed.
If you feel like you have either swallowed or inhaled the crown, please seek medical attention as inhaled objects can potentially be life threatening.

Bridges are simply crowns fused together to help replace single or multiple missing teeth. We use the teeth either side of the missing tooth as anchors to “bridge” the space. Bridges can excellent alternative for patients who are not candidates for dental implants.
