Fixed prosthodontics refers to prosthodontic treatments that restore the condition of your teeth and general oral health. The two most common fixed prosthodontic treatments are crowns (caps) and bridges.
A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface, restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth.
Veneers are porcelain/ceramic covers that are bonded to the natural teeth. Veneers can instantly solve problems like uneven teeth, stained teeth, and chips and damage caused by general wear and tear.
Prosthetic crowns are generally made from porcelain, metal or a combination of the two. They have been designed to mimic the natural crown (surface of the tooth) and can last for up to a decade, and possibly longer.
A fixed bridge is a non-removable appliance that can replace missing teeth naturally. Dental bridges are highly durable and will last for many years.
