Crowns and Bridges provide an ideal solution to rebuilding teeth affected by decay or have broken, weakened or have a large filling. Crowns are also sometimes known as caps.
Our dentist can fit the crown right over the remaining part of the tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape and contour of a natural tooth.
A dental bridges’ main function is to effectively replace the missing tooth with an artificial one (much like a crown) that has customised “wings” which attach to the teeth either side of the gap. The construction process and materials used are the same as in the fabrication of crowns, with the additional “wings” which attach to the teeth either side.
Despite the revolution of implant treatment, bridges still provide an excellent long-term solution to replace gaps. Furthermore, they form an excellent interim restoration during implant treatment.
