Crowns & Bridges

Visual representation of a tooth-colored dental crown. A crown is a prosthetic tooth that is used to restore teeth where the structure is too weakened or damaged to accept amalgam or dental composite fillings. Dental technology has come a long way to improve the look of crowns. Compared to the old style bridges, these works of art are exceptionally well fitting and very natural looking. Using a bridge or crown with a metal base covered with porcelain or using all porcelain material eliminates the dark edges at the gum line that were visible with the old style bridges and crowns.

When the size of a filling exceeds a certain proportion of the tooth, it must be replaced with a cap, also called a “crown.” In addition to restoring original strength and blending beautifully with adjacent teeth, porcelain crowns look very natural and don’t have a dark metal line. They reflect light with a natural healthy glow, creating a great look in life and in photos.

Dental crowns are needed when teeth begin to chip or wear down, usually caused by factors such as teeth grinding, an improper bite, or decay. Crowns add strength and stability to such teeth, by completely covering over the entire surface of the afflicted tooth. And at the practice of Dr. Michael Brogna, we use only the best possible cosmetic option: porcelain.

All-porcelain bridges are produced from strong, durable porcelain material and appear similar to your original teeth. They could be used to replace up to five teeth in a row, however, they are not as strong like a bridge which uses metal for extra support. Of course, when they are combined with dental implants, they work as attractively and strongly as your original teeth.
