Crowns and Bridges
Dental crowns and bridges can help correct a number of dental issues and can enhance your speech, chewing ability, appearance of your smile and comfort in your mouth by evening out your biting pressure. Dental Crowns and Bridges are the ideal option for those suffering from tooth loss, damaged teeth or even just generally unsatisfying teeth as they represent a strong, durable and aesthetically pleasing restorative technique.
A dental crown can best be described as a ‘cap’ which is positioned over an existing tooth to improve its appearance or strengthen it. Once properly positioned, the dental crown is most often ‘cemented’ into place and will completely cover the area of the tooth which is above the gum line.
A dental bridge is a false tooth, known as a pontic, which is fused between two crowns to bridge the gap left by a missing tooth.
