Crowns And Bridges

Crowns are used to restore both posterior and anterior teeth that have broken or are at risk of breaking due to oversized filling or fractures. A crown involves covering the tooth above the gum line with a cap/crown.

The purpose of the crown is to strengthen a tooth damaged by decay or previous restorations, to protect a tooth that has had a root canal treatment or to improve the way the bite fits together. Crowns may also be used to restore or improve the appearance of damaged, discoloured, misshapen or poorly spaced teeth.

We use a porcelain crown that can help recreate your beautiful smile and repair the structure and function of any tooth. Porcelain crowns are created to match the texture, translucency and colour of your natural teeth.

We use bridges together with crowns to help regain your perfect smile. Bridges are an aesthetically pleasing option that looks natural and is discreet. A bridge is used when a patient loses a tooth. A bridge is essentially a false tooth attached to two crowns on either side to give support. This allows the dentist to restore the smile without further loss of teeth.
