Bridges and Crowns
Dental crowns and bridges are used to restore the appearance and strength of damaged, decayed, fractured or missing teeth. Unlike dentures which can be removed, crowns and bridges are cemented onto existing teeth or implants and can only be removed by a dentist.
A crown, sometimes known as a cap, is used to cover a damaged tooth. For many patients, a crown is the most effective way to save or strengthen damaged teeth. By removing a small amount of tooth enamel, a base is created for the porcelain crown to be securely attached to the existing tooth.
In a similar process, a dental bridge can be used to replace missing teeth. A bridge consists of an artificial tooth, anchored by two crowns on either side of the gap. As well as improving your smile and appearance, dental bridges prevent the surrounding teeth moving as a result of missing teeth. Dental bridges are a quick and effective alternative to implants and can improve your bite and ability to chew.
