What Are Crowns?
A dental crown is a cap that surrounds the tooth. Dr. Akhavan will typically use a crown to restore a tooth that has been damaged, but they can also be used for cosmetic purposes in order to improve the appearance of a smile. A crown can be made in three different materials, all-metal, ceramic-on-metal, and all-ceramic. Where the crown is located will determine the best material to use. For example, front teeth should have an all-ceramic crown, if possible, since it looks the most natural. Patients will often use ceramic-on-metal crowns since they look natural but have the durability that only metal can provide.
What are Dental Bridges?
A dental bridge is a way to replace a missing tooth. At our office, we provide clients with dental bridges if they want to replace a tooth without wearing dentures or undergoing surgery. The new tooth is held in place by two crowns. It looks natural and is made out of a ceramic or porcelain material to match the surrounding teeth. As an experienced cosmetic dentist, Dr. Akhavan makes sure that the new tooth looks and feels amazing. This is a popular option for many patients.
