CROWNS AND BRIDGES
Dental Crowns or Bridges are needed to save a tooth that has been so damaged by decay that it can’t support a filling.
This procedure involves a tooth shaped cap being placed over one of your original teeth or an implants. Depending on the reason for the crown, this will help amend either size, shape or strength of a tooth. It may also be used to improve the appearance of your teeth.
There are many uses for crowns but they typically are used to fill a broken tooth and also can provide strength after a root canal treatment.
Further uses for crowns include helping to protect stained and chipped teeth. They can also be used to cover implants, and for aesthetic purposes.
There are multiple reasons why you might need a crown. A crown is most commonly referred to as a dental cap, a type of dental restoration that completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. For cosmetic cases and restorative needs a crown can be used. During a
consultation, your dentist would first consider all the options and then may suggest a crown. A crown may also be needed when a large cavity threatens the health of a tooth.
Porcelain crowns are made crafted specifically to restore your teeth to their natural appearance. They’re also designed to resemble your exisiting teeth. Metal-based crowns were traditionally used for many years but with advances in dental practices now porcelain crowns are a much more popular option as they focus on the aesthetic benefits too, which is especially important if you require a crown on your front teeth. We aim to make your crowns match your natural teeth, style texture and colour,
