Crowns and Bridges in Chicago
Crowns and bridges are used to restore and enhance teeth that are damaged or to take the place of missing teeth. A crown (also referred to as a cap) is used to entirely cover a damaged tooth. A crown not only protects a tooth, but it can dramatically improve a tooth’s appearance, shape and alignment. Crowns are a last resort for the tooth. With the newer dental materials, crowns are generally not needed.
A bridge is a method to fill the space created by missing teeth. A bridge is one or more artificial teeth cemented into place using the teeth on either side for support. This is an option for filling the space created by a missing tooth. Bridge work is as much an art as it is an exact science since it replaces a missing tooth both functionally and cosmetically. The materials used may be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, ceramic, or composite material made to match your natural tooth color. Dr. Nikolovski offers metal free crowns and bridges.
