They function differently than separable devices such as dentures, and both aim to restore oral function and appearance. Both of these procedures are easy and inexpensive, and the result will be a beautifully aligned and shaped smile. At Comprehensive Dental, Dr. Samir Rana and the rest of our team would be happy to rebuild your smile with custom, quality restorations.

Dental crowns are used to cover a damaged tooth. Besides improving appearance, a crown can strengthen a damaged tooth. Even if the entire oral cavity is affected, the entire shape and alignment of your smile can be restored. A crown can be put on the upper side of an implant to provide an original, tooth-like pattern for proper function. There are two different types of crowns: porcelain and ceramic. Both are able to match the original color of teeth. Just like dental bridges, crowns are used to restore gorgeous smiles. We recommend a crown to restore a weak, fractured tooth.
A dental bridge is a treatment that can replace missing teeth. They utilize the healthiest part of the crown by producing a cap for the teeth on either side of the space as “anchors” that hold the bridge in place. Natural teeth or implants support the crowns. The fake tooth or teeth are bonded to the caps and fill the hollow distance. The bridge is what restores that beautiful smile.
Why would someone need a dental bridge or a dental crown?
Dental crowns and bridges aim to better the overall health of the oral cavity. This procedure is recommended if you are lacking one or more teeth. If these gaps are not treated, nearby teeth rotate and move into the empty spaces. This can lead to improper bite alignment. More severe consequences can and will happen if the imbalance is not corrected. Gum disease or temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders can be caused due to missing teeth. Both dental bridges and crowns help fill this gap between teeth and prevent misalignment.
What are the benefits of dental bridges and crowns?
Dental bridges and crowns are essential procedures if you have missing teeth. These treatments are mainly used to restore oral appearance. However, the benefits do not stop there. After these treatments, oral functionality and alignment will be greatly improved. Choosing to wait on these treatments may lead to other, more complicated oral difficulties later on for patients from Montville, NJ and surrounding areas.
