Crowns & Bridges in Brick, NJ


Crowns
When the ongoing health of a tooth is threatened, such as by a very large cavity, there are times when a crown is placed to restore the full look and function of the tooth. (Crowns are sometimes referred to as “caps”.) Once the area is ready for a crown, an impression is taken so the lab can custom-make your crown. Crowns can be made from gold or other metals, porcelain, zirconia, or a combination of these materials. Shore Points Dentist uses only well-respected and professional dental labs in our own area, for optimal turn-around time, local service and your ultimate satisfaction. When the crown is prepared, it is cemented into place with dental cement for a permanent adhesion
Bridges
Dental bridges are similar to a crown, with the exception that they are placed when one tooth has lost complete functionality. The decayed tooth is removed and the bridge (a false tooth, called a pontic) gaps the space between the two healthy teeth on either side of the gap. Bridges can be made from gold or other metals, porcelain, zirconia or a combination of materials.
