People often think of crowns and bridges to be synonymous with each other. While they're both prosthetic devices, their functions make them different from each other. Crowns or caps are coverings made of different materials that encase a natural tooth. Typically, we use our dental crowns to 'cap' a damaged tooth. This tooth might be weak, cracked, or discoloured.
Apart from protecting natural teeth, we also use crowns for cosmetic purposes. Since they closely replicate your natural teeth and restore their shape and size, they can enhance your smile. In many cases, we also place crowns over dental implants for added support. Our dental crowns in Comox Valley are sturdy and last for years.
