Some compromised teeth need more structural support than simple fillings. These teeth may have large fillings, fractures or previous root canal therapy and require treatment to prevent future fracture, deterioration or loss. Crowns provide this support by surround the tooth and supporting biting forces. They can also be used to change the color and contours of previously treated teeth.

Bridges can be done to replace missing teeth by using adjacent teeth for support. The bridge unit is permanently cemented in place, providing tooth replacement that is undetectable, esthetically pleasing and protective by supporting the position and force of the remaining teeth.
