Crowns and Bridges

Crowns are full coverage restorations that are used to cover or "cap" a tooth that is damaged. They are commonly recommended to prevent a weak tooth from fracturing and to replace a tooth with a large filling and minimal remaining tooth structure.  The larger the hole made by a cavity that has to be treated, the more likely a crown will be needed.  Many teeth with root canal therapy need a full coverage crown.  They can also be used to improve appearance and esthetics.  Crowns can be completed in one or two visits depending on the type of crown needed.  Talk to Dr. Campbell or Dr. Hickey to see which option is right for you.


Bridges are commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth.  Bridges are cemented similarly to that of crowns and help to maintain the position of your teeth and prevent rotating or shifting of the dentition into the empty space.  Talk to your dentist about all options for replacing missing teeth.
