What are Dental Crowns?

Crowns are made of natural-looking porcelain used to cover your natural teeth. The crown will look, feel and function like a natural tooth while offering complete protection.

You may need a crown if your tooth has:

• Previous filling where more filling exists than tooth.
• Extensive damage by decay.
• Discolourations of your teeth.
• After the root canal, teeth tend to become brittle which may need to be protected by a crown.

Crowns strengthen and protect the remaining tooth structure and at the same time can improve the appearance of your teeth.

What is a Bridge?

A bridge is used to replace one or several teeth. The teeth on each end of the space are used as anchors supporting the replacement tooth.

When a tooth is lost, it is essential to insert a replacement tooth as soon as possible because the teeth may move into the space changing your bite over time. The change in the bite may cause further complications.
