Crowns and Bridges

What are Dental Crowns and Tooth Bridges?

Crowns and bridges are fixed prosthetic devices, which can offer an effective, durable, functional and aesthetically pleasing solution to one or many missing teeth. They also be a more permanent solution than dentures, as crowns and bridges are cemented onto existing teeth or dental implants.

How do Crowns work?

A crown comes in two types. The first is a thin cap which is placed over an existing, damaged tooth to restore its original shape, strength, function and appearance. The second is a full restoration crown (new tooth). This type of crown is affixed to a dental implant to provide functionality, strength and appearance. Predominantly made from porcelain materials, crowns can be technically coloured to precisely match your existing teeth.

Why Would I Need A Crown?

  • replace a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth remaining.
  • protect a weak tooth from fracturing.
  • restore a fractured tooth.
  • attach a bridge.
  • cover a dental implant.
  • cover a discoloured or poorly shaped tooth.
  • cover a toot that has had root canal treatment.

How do Bridges work?

A bridge is an effective restorative method for multiple missing teeth. Anchored to surrounding teeth or crowns, bridges are used to ‘bridge’ the gap where teeth are missing. If you are suffering from tooth loss, or feel that crowns and bridges may be the solution for you, contact our friendly team to arrange a consultation.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
