Dental crown and bridge work is a fixed appliance that may be required to help strengthen a weak or broken tooth, close a gap or for cosmetic enhancement. A dental crown is a ‘cap’ that encases the tooth to restore its shape, strengthen the natural tooth and improve its appearance. Dental crowns come in a variety of materials which will be dependent on your individual wants and needs. A dental crown may be required for the following reasons;
- To protect and help prevent a tooth from breaking or to hold together any existing cracks in the tooth
- To restore a tooth that is heavily worn down or broken
- To protect a tooth that has an existing large filling
- To cosmetically enhance a tooth that is chipped, discoloured or an un-desirable shape
- To cover an existing dental implant
A dental bridge is recommended when there is one or more missing teeth. A dental bridge is a number of crowns fused together to replace these missing teeth. They are a fixed appliance and similar to crowns, are available in a number of different materials dependant to your individual needs.
Dental crowns and bridges are custom made to your teeth and colour matched to suit your smile.
