|Crowns and Bridges|
A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
Reasons for crowns and Bridges

• Cosmetic enhancement.
• Decayed teeth.
• Fractured fillings.
• Large fillings.
• Tooth has a root canal.
What does getting a crown involve?
A crown procedure usually requires two appointments. Your first appointment will include taking shighly accurate molds of both arches of the mouth .A mold will also be used to create a temporary crown which will stay on your tooth for approximately two weeks. You will return to the office to have your crown or bridge placed.
You will be given care instructions and encouraged to have regular dental visits to check your new crown/bridge.
