Crowns & Bridges
A crown falls into the category of dental restoration and involves capping a tooth or dental implant. It covers the tooth with the purpose of restoring the tooth’s shape, strength, appearance as well as preserving the functionality of the damaged tooth. A dental crown is often needed when a significant cavity threatens the structural integrity of a tooth. Meanwhile, a bridge replaces a missing tooth by joining an artificial tooth permanently to adjacent teeth or a dental implant.
Our clinic uses dental bridges that are a cosmetic solution to close the gaps between teeth, filling spaces with attractive, durable and comfortable teeth. These bridges can be permanently positioned and can last for a long period of if maintained correctly.
The materials used for the bridges include porcelain and zicconia. Usually, the neighbouring teeth are reduced in size to accommodate the material used to restore the missing tooth. The amount and type of reduction done depends on the material used.
