Wisdom teeth are the third molars which usually appear between the ages of 17 and 24.  If there is ample room for the wisdom teeth they will come through normally. Sometimes not all 4 are present or they may not come through properly.

Crowns
A crown is a custom made hollow shell or ‘cap’ used to completely cover a tooth.  They can be made from gold, porcelain fused to a metal base or full porcelain.

A bridge is a fixed restoration used to replace a missing tooth or fill in a gap.  It is usually cemented or bonded into place.  As there are a few types of bridges, your Dentist will recommend the best type for your situation.

Bruxism and Night Guards
