Dental crowns are caps that go over damaged teeth and are designed to reinforce their structure. Dr. Hong makes your crown to resemble the tooth in its original form.
Dental bridges are similar to crowns. In fact, some dental bridge styles include one or two crowns. Bridges always replace one or more missing teeth. The false tooth or teeth in a dental bridge are called pontics, and they look realistic while filling the gap perfectly. They either rely on other teeth next to the gap or dental implants to anchor in place.
Crowns and bridges have very similar planning processes. Dr. Hong uses state-of-the-art technology and imaging to scan your tooth for a crown before and after removing some enamel. By doing this, she can make a crown or bridge that fits perfectly and looks like a natural feature in your smile.
