Crowns & Bridges
Crowns & Bridges
Dental crowns are an excellent way of restoring teeth. The custom-made and sized restoration is fitted over the existing natural tooth and replaces the visible tooth above the gum. Crowns are often required when a tooth has been damaged and is no longer structurally sound.
This treatment can be used to improve appearance by covering chipped or stained teeth or by modifying the overall appearance of a tooth. Crowns can be made of a number of different materials including porcelain or gold. The material choice is typically based on strength requirements, space, the amount of tooth structure left and the patients’ aesthetic demands.
Bridges are designed to replace missing teeth or gaps and have similar function to an implants or dentures. A dental bridge is an artificial tooth that is secured into the mouth on an adjacent tooth, crown or implant.
Missing teeth can significantly impact speech, the ability to chew and sometimes even have a negative impact on the health of the jaw. These issues can often be resolved using a dental bridge. Patients like this treatment option because they do not need to be removed which makes keeping them clean easier and less embarrassing than a traditional denture.
Bridges can also be made of a number of materials that closely match natural tooth colour which provides a pleasing aesthetic look.
