Crown and Bridge

Dental Crowns

If a tooth is extremely damaged as a result of decay or trauma, a crown may be used to restore its appearance and strength. Crowns cover the entire tooth and seal chipped or broken areas and is cemented permanently onto the tooth with a suitable adhesive.  Crowns are also able to transform a smile as crowns are able to be made to any shape, size and colour.
Crowns can be made from various materials depending on the indications for the particular case.

The different types of crowns are:

– Full porcelain
– Porcelain fused with metal
– Full metal crowns.
A root canal treated tooth involving significant loss in tooth structure normally requires a crown for protection.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a permanent, non-removable restoration used to replace missing teeth in a patient’s mouth by using the adjacent teeth as support. A dental bridge usually consists of two crowns with a false tooth “bridged” between. The crowns are placed on the teeth adjacent to the gap for strength and stability. Other options for replacing missing teeth include partial dentures and dental implants.
