The branch of dentistry dealing with the replacement of teeth and related mouth or jaw structures by artificial devices.
Crowns and Bridges
Crown and bridgework, also described as restorative dentistry, involves the restoration of natural teeth that have been damaged, decayed or lost. Crowns and bridges can correct missing teeth, bite dysfunction, and functional or structural problems. A crown can restore an individual damaged tooth back to its original form and function, while a bridge can replace one or more teeth. Crowns strengthen and protect the remaining tooth structure and can improve the appearance of your smile. Type of crowns and bridges can be the zirconia, the full porcelain, the porcelain-fused-to-metal and the all-metal.
