What Are Dental Crowns And Dental Bridges?
Dental crowns protect you from further pain, discomfort, or damage by completely covering your damaged tooth. They also provide a natural-looking appearance so no one will be the wiser. Depending on your particular need, Novi, MI dentist Dr. Ross will prescribe either a zirconia or e.max crown, both of which look much more natural than traditional metal crowns.
Similar to dental crowns, dental inlays and onlays are “indirect” fillings that are prefabricated in a state-of-the-art lab out of tooth-colored resin and then placed on decayed teeth. Inlays lay inside the tooth’s biting surface (cusps), and onlays can cover the cusps as well as the sides of your teeth.
Dental bridges are an alternative or supplement to dental implants if you want to replace a missing or damaged tooth or teeth.
