A crown is a dental restoration that is used to repair damaged teeth by placing over the existing tooth to provide strength. Crowns are an ideal solution for restoring teeth to their original shape, to strengthen a weak tooth or to improve a tooth’s cosmetic appearance. When teeth have become weak from decay or are threatening to break they can be preserved for many more years using crowns. The most aesthetically pleasing crowns are ceramic or porcelain as they give the most natural looking result.
A dental bridge is a restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth. The restoration uses crowns on either side of a gap to literally ‘bridge’ the space where a tooth is missing. They are a quick and effective restoration and a great alternative to implants, essentially restoring your ability to bit and chew.
