Porcelain Crowns (Caps)
A crown or cap encases the entire tooth’s surface to restore the tooth to its original shape and size. A crown adds protection and strengthens the tooth structure than cannot be restored with a filling or any other type of restoration procedures. Porcelain crowns are the most popular as they bear the closest resemblance to natural teeth.
Dental bridges are considered a fixed appliance that is non-removable and is the most effective way to replace missing teeth. Your Michael G.
