Dental crowns and bridges allow dentists to protect and restore damaged teeth. Typically, when tooth decay is severe enough that it can’t be treated with a filling, a dental crown will be used to cover, or cap, the tooth. Crowns are also commonly used to seal teeth that have been treated with root canal therapy. And occasionally, dental crowns are used for cosmetic purposes or in smile makeovers.
A dental bridge is a type of dental work that replaces a tooth or a few consecutive missing teeth. Two dental crowns are placed on the healthy teeth living on either side of the gap left by your lost tooth. A false tooth, or pontic, is attached to the crowns and literally bridges the gap, replacing your missing tooth.
Dental crowns are also referred to as “caps” because they cap the existing tooth structure in order to restore it.

I had a root canal this morning. Mine was a particularly difficult case as I had very long roots, calcification and an infection. Dr. Shen did a great job and carefully explained everything. The front office was very friendly and efficient.
