Crowns and Bridges
A healthy tooth is generally very strong and resistant to breaking. However, teeth can become weakened through trauma (such as a fall), decay and general wear and tear. Often, a simple ‘filling’ may not be strong enough to restore the tooth long term and your dentist may recommend a crown as the best treatment for your tooth and protect it from further damage.
A crown will cover over and encase a tooth and can be made of porcelain, metal, or a combination of both. Crowns not only help strengthen a tooth, they can also be used to improve the cosmetic appearance of your smile as they can mask stains, defects and also give the appearance of straighter teeth.
A bridge is similar to a crown and is used to restore the gap left by a missing tooth, without the need for metal clasps or bulky plastic plates.
