Crowns and Bridges
While we will always do our utmost to save a tooth, tooth loss is sometimes unavoidable. If your tooth becomes so decayed that a filling is unable to rectify the situation, crowns and bridges may be the best next step.
A crown is a small, tooth-shaped cap that your dentist will fix over the noticeable part of your tooth. They will then attach a bridge to the natural teeth or implants surrounding the gap and place the replacement tooth over the crown.
