Crowns and Bridges

Crown

A weakened tooth or a tooth that is heavily filled may be prone to fracture.  If only a little tooth structure remains, options may be limited and a filling just may not last.

A crown is a like a barrel that holds a tooth together.  It helps reinforce the tooth and reduces the chances of decay when compared with a large filling.  They look fantastic because they are custom made for your smile.

Crowns are can be tooth coloured or gold and made of ceramic or porcelain materials.  Our patients love the high quality finish which means that they are almost indistinguishable from a natural tooth.

Bridge

A bridge spans across two teeth (or sometimes hangs off one) to fill the space left by a missing tooth..

It is a permanent fixture as it is glued to the teeth on each side so it won’t fall out when you talk.  It may require minimal removal of tooth structure to give support to the custom made tooth.  For some people this can actually be beneficial as this can even strengthen the supporting teeth as well as filling a space.

A dental bridge is made from porcelain or ceramic material and appear natural in colour. 

A bridge will take a couple of  weeks to be custom made to suit you.
