What Are Dental Crowns and Bridges?

Dental crowns and bridges are custom made restorations that fit snugly over existing tooth structures, completely covering it. A crown is a restoration for a single tooth. A bridge is designed to replace one or more missing teeth and is usually comprised of two or more crowns fused together. Both crowns and bridges mimic the shape, color, strength, and appearance of a natural tooth.

Why Choose Dental Crowns and Bridges?

Over time, teeth can begin to weaken, wear or become susceptible to decay, fracture, discoloration or loss. Dental crowns and bridges can be reliable, affordable options for correcting these dental problems and can prolong the life of a natural tooth for many years.

Dr. Duke Kim may recommend a crown or bridge for various reasons:

• You have weak teeth (i.e.: from decay)
• To prevent teeth from breaking or cracking
• You have teeth that are severely worn down or already broken
• You need a large filling
• You need a dental bridge to replace a missing tooth
• Your teeth are misshapen or discolored
