Crowns and Bridges

If you have teeth that have little natural structure left, then a dental crown may be the best treatment for long term stability.

A crown is a custom ‘cap’ that covers a real tooth that been broken, decayed or damaged.

Usually made from gold and/or porcelain, they are cemented onto the remaining tooth giving the appearance and strength of a completely uncompromised tooth.

When a complete tooth is missing, a bridge may be the best option where a crown is fitted with a false tooth joined to it to fill in the gap.
