Dental Caps in Clairemont Mesa, California
A dental crown, sometimes nicknamed a “cap,” is a way to fix a cavity that is too big for an ordinary filling to fix. They are also used for cracks or fractures in places that a filling can’t fit inside of.
Signs you may need a crown:
- There are crack lines in your tooth
- Your tooth is completely or partially broken
- Your tooth has a very large filling that has started to break down
- You have had a recent Root Canal Therapy performed on a tooth.
Bridges are a way to replace missing teeth by connecting teeth in front and behind the missing tooth together. A bridge is one of three ways to replace missing teeth, including dental implants and partial dentures. Ask Dr. Ali which option works best for you at your appointment.
