Crowns & Bridges
Dentist in San Mateo, CA
A crown is a tooth-shaped cap placed over the tooth to strengthen and protect it. Most dental crowns are created from a hard, white material to emulate a natural appearance. Crowns are recommended for patients who have experienced broken teeth or cavities.
Dental bridges cover a gap between missing teeth. After a tooth has been lost, the surrounding teeth may move out of place. A bridge is recommended to prevent the teeth from moving. Once a bridge has been placed, it functions and appears like your natural teeth.
