Crowns and Bridgework

A crown is a jacket which fits over the existing natural tooth and is permanently bonded to it with dental cement.

A crown can be the best way to save, strengthen, and protect a tooth. It can also improve the appearance of a stained, damaged or unusually shaped tooth.

There are different types of bridges, but all involve replacing a missing tooth or teeth with an artificial tooth/teeth and permanently bonding the artificial tooth/teeth to the adjacent tooth/teeth (if you are having a ‘fixed’ bridge, adjacent teeth are crowned). A bridge can restore your smile and your ability to properly chew and speak, and maintain the shape of your face. It can improve your bite and prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position.

Both Crowns and Bridges are colour matched and will be hard to distinguish from your natural teeth.
