Dental crowns can help fill the gaps in your smile. Crowns are used to restore the shape, size, and strength of damaged teeth. The cap on your tooth will improve its appearance and make it easier for you to bite and chew. Types of bridges may vary, depending upon how they are fabricated and the way they anchor to the adjacent teeth. Your dentist will help you decide which type of crown is best for you by taking into account your aesthetic preferences, body chemistry, and budget.
