If you have severe tooth decay or enamel erosion, a crown can be a good solution. A dental crown is a prosthetic object that is attached to a tooth. Not only it improves the appearance, but it only helps you chew and speak the way you normally do.
In addition, if you grind and clench your teeth so much that it damages your teeth structure, a crown can be an option.
Porcelain crowns do not only re-establish your teeth in function, but they also look just like your natural teeth. Compared to porcelain veneer that only covers the front portion of your teeth, porcelain crown covers the whole tooth, and it’s thicker and stronger.

A dental bridge is a non-removable fixed prosthetic appliance that can replace your missing teeth. Our dentists in Turlock will discuss which type of bridge will work for your particular case.
Fixed bridges are usually made of porcelain fused to metal, which has two crowns that go over two abutment teeth and they’re attached to artificial teeth in order to fill the space.
Fixed bridges are very durable even if it may be necessary to regularly check with your dentists in Turlock as they might need to be re-cemented due to normal wear.
