A crown, or dental cap, is a type of dental restoration which completely covers or encircles a tooth or dental implant. A crown may be needed when a large cavity threatens the health of a tooth. They are typically bonded to the tooth by dental cement. Crowns can be made from many materials, which are usually fabricated using indirect methods. Crowns are used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth and to halt deterioration.
A fixed bridge is a type of prosthesis that is recommended when one or more teeth are missing within the same area of the mouth. Appropriate case selection is important when considering fixed bridgework. Patient expectations will be discussed, and a thorough patient history will be obtained. The bridge is cemented into place and cannot be removed by a patient.
Invisalign is a clear alignment technology, and more specifically, a series of clear aligners that are computer generated to gradually guide the teeth into proper alignment.
