The purpose of restorative dentistry is to bring your smile back to a state of health and vitality. This is done in many ways, including through the use of bridges and crowns. At Advance Dental Care, we are proud to have a Specialist Prosthodontist on our team, offering you the highest level of experience and skill in your dental restorations.
When teeth are badly decayed or heavily filled, a crown may be required to restore lost tooth tissue or protect what remains. Root-filled teeth are weakened due to the root filling and over time become more brittle. They will often require crowning to protect the tooth from fracturing.

Bridges are a permanent way to fill in the gaps while supporting remaining teeth and keeping them in their proper position. Bridges can help prevent the shifting of remaining teeth, as well as decay and periodontal bone loss. Unlike dentures, a bridge is permanently fixed into place, which gives increased support and stability.
