Crowns and Bridges
Crowns (or caps) are dental restorations that are used to replace an old amalgam filling or a broken tooth to provide improved function and protection when a white filling will not be strong enough to be considered as the ideal treatment. A bridge will replace a missing tooth or teeth when dental implants are not the treatment of choice. The bridge will have a crown on either side of the missing tooth or teeth to connect their replacements. A bridge can also be supported by dental implants to correct an area where several teeth are missing.
Natural looking crowns are completed in a single visit while bridges will require no more than two visits.
Dr. Yankowskas will use 3D imaging, our in house lab and his great eye for esthetics to fabricate a restoration that will be an ideal replacement of your tooth structure to improve strength, appearance and function.
