Crown & Bridges

Crowns cover the entire tooth, helping to protect vulnerable teeth from further problems (for example, a tooth that has a large filling, is cracked, or has received Root Canal treatment). Crowns are also used to alter the shape of a tooth, particularly useful for correcting a bite pattern or fixing a cosmetic problem. Crowns are available in gold or white porcelain.

Bridges are used to replace missing teeth, where teeth are present on either side of the missing tooth. It’s a ceramic structure which covers the gap left by a missing or extracted tooth. To anchor the bridge, the neighbouring teeth will have porcelain crowns fitted to which the bridge is fused.
