Not only are missing teeth aesthetically not pleasant, they may also cause jaw problems and shifting of the surrounding teeth. After a dental consultation with Dr. Razon-Clemente either a dental crown or a dental bridge may be recommended, depending on your case. Dental Crowns may be also used to treat a diseased tooth that has lost most of its healthy structure. With just enough tooth structure to hold the crown in place, your tooth will look, feel and act just like natural teeth and even better.
Below is a quick demonstration of a dental bridge procedure. Both, dental crowns and dental bridges require some preparations to the affected tooth and the supporting teeth, so that they can act as strong foundations to the dental restorations.
