Cosmetic dentist, Dr. Sean Kutlay, provides porcelain crowns and bridges to return strength to damaged teeth and to replace missing teeth. While the two are different dental prostheses, crowns are an integral part of every bridge. Both play a role in our journey to provide you an amazing smile.
When a tooth either has extensive decay or inherent problems such as a crack or chip, we use a crown to return function, strength and stability. A crown is a porcelain restoration that covers a cracked or chipped tooth. In addition to damaged teeth, crowns can be used to cover misshapen teeth or to fill uneven gaps. They also serve as the anchors for dental bridges.
