Frequently Asked Questions
Is a crown better than a bridge?
If you have been researching crowns vs bridges, you may have come to the conclusion that one is better than the other. But, if you only have one tooth that is misshapen or discolored, then a crown will be less invasive than a bridge. If you have multiple damaged teeth or are missing teeth, a bridge may be the better choice.
Can an existing crown be used for a bridge?
In most cases, you cannot use an existing crown for a bridge. Dental crown and dental bridge procedures are different. To ensure a successful procedure, Dr. Jones will evaluate your situation to determine what is necessary to achieve a healthy, beautiful smile.Contact Us
