Crowns and Bridges
A crown is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface, thus restoring it to its original shape, size, and colour. They are often used when filling cannot restore the tooth. Initially the tooth is prepared in order to create a strong and stable base for the crown. The crown is then bonded onto the tooth. There are several types of crowns, including high-strength ceramic, a combination of metal and ceramic, or a high-strength gold alloy alone. All ceramic crowns, made of materials such as Emax, can produce near perfect aesthetic results when constructed in harmony and conjunction with our ceramist. Our expert team will discuss all options that best suit your dental and aesthetic needs.
A bridge is a fixed non-removable restoration used to fill the gap left by missing teeth. The bridge, consisting of a false tooth, is bonded to the crowns adjacent to the gap. There are several different types of bridges. Our expert team will discuss all the options that best suit your dental and aesthetic needs. Dental bridges are highly durable provided you look after them. We advise all patients on the correct techniques of good oral hygiene and diet.
