Crowns and Bridges
Crowns are often necessary when the remaining natural tooth structure is not enough to adequately support a composite filling or on back teeth that have been treated by root canals.
Crowns completely surround the tooth and help to protect the tooth.
The procedure involves shaving the tooth down in all dimensions, making a mould of the tooth, then having a dental lab fabricate the final crown, which is cemented permanently.
Crowns can be made of gold, alloy, porcelain or a combination of the two materials each with their own advantages.
Bridges are used to replace a missing tooth or missing teeth. The bridge is similar to a crown as it covers the teeth on both sides of the space. These crowns are bonded to a replacement tooth, which gives you back function and aesthetics.
