Crowns and bridges are an excellent option for someone with teeth that are less than perfect, but that warrant saving or those with gaps and missing teeth. Bridges are used to hold a false tooth in place when there are two teeth on either side to hold it together. Bridges use two crowns which are affixed to the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth. They fit across the false tooth so that the tooth fits right into place securely. If you have teeth that are in structurally good condition, but that have suffered damaged such as chips, cracks or discoloration, crowns are a great way to keep the natural teeth as long as possible. They are created to fit your teeth perfectly and fit over your tooth to keep it together and hide the damage.
