Crowns and Bridges

Crowns and Bridges

A healthy smile is one of the best ways to improve your confidence. At our practice, the primary focus is restoring dental health and beauty. Crowns are one of the solutions that can be used to create a stunning and healthy smile.

A crown can support the tooth when there is no longer sufficient tooth structure left to place a filling. Crowns may also be used to protect the structure of a tooth that is fractured or broken, and can be attached to bridges or implants to support dentures.

A crown is a tooth-like covering placed over a carefully prepared existing tooth or implant. Crowns serve many functions, to strengthen, restore or improve the appearance of your natural tooth. There are many different types of crowns including those where the outer porcelain layer is fused to a metal sub-frame (Porcelain Fused to Metal Crowns) and those where there is no metal whatsoever (All Porcelain Crowns). Crowns can also be made using various gold alloys. Full gold crowns, despite their durability, are not normally considered to be an aesthetic/cosmetic restoration.

Both form and function are key to oral health and a beautiful smile.

To replace one or more missing teeth a device named a bridge is custom made to anchor to neighbouring teeth. When a lost tooth is replaced with bridgework, the teeth on either side of the missing one are prepared as crowns to serve as abutments to hold the prosthetic (replacement) tooth in place.

Crowns and bridges are most often made from semiprecious or precious metals, porcelain, or a fused combination of the two. Aesthetics, function, and tissue compatibility are considered when selecting the material most suitable for you.
