What is a Crown and Bridge?
A dental crown, also known as a cap, is a tooth-shaped cover that is placed over a weakened or damaged tooth. Its main aim is to bring back the tooth’s lost appearance and eliminate any further deterioration.
On the other hand, a dental bridge is made up of artificial teeth that are usually connected to a number of crowns that are used to fill a gap that was created due to a single or multiple missing teeth.
Are Crowns and Bridges Important to You?
The main aim of getting crowns and bridges is to rectify the problem caused in your dental structure due to an accident or tooth decay. The gap created may have a negative impact on how you eat or how your teeth function. Therefore, they improve the functionality as well as the look of your teeth.
In addition, the crown protects as well as giving power to the weakened tooth due to injury or decay. Crowns and bridges are therefore used to give a permanent as well as a non-removable option.
What are Crown and Bridges Made of?
At MK Dental Group, clients are provided with a wide range of options for the crowns. Usually, crowns can be made of all metal or porcelain. In some instances, they can be made of both. A Bridge is made out of artificial teeth supported on a bridge.

On the initial day, an assessment will be carried out. This includes physical examinations accompanied by X-rays. Dr. Khorramian does all this to make sure that there is enough bone to support either of the processes.
