Crowns and Bridges
A crown is a custom crafted and fitted cap like structure that fits over your original tooth. A bridge does essentially the same thing, but is used to replace an entirely lost tooth and can be a collection of crowns. A traditional bridge is secured to two surrounding teeth and is a permanent fixture in your mouth. Crowns and Bridges can either be Porcelain fused to metal or fully porcelain. They can also be made of precious metals like gold alloys depending on what best suits your needs. A resin glue is generally used to form a strong bond and bridge the gap in your teeth and self-esteem.
Crowns are generally recommended following Root Canal treatment, in case of badly damaged teeth, while bridges come in to place when you have one or more missing teeth. Crowns and bridges both closely resemble natural teeth as they are custom made, and colour matched to blend in with your natural smile. Crowns and bridges both restore functionality of the tooth as well as aesthetics of your teeth.
