Crowns and bridges are frequently used to repair and protect badly damaged teeth, or replace missing teeth.
What is a crown?
A crown is a custom-crafted tooth-like cap (crown) that fits over a damaged tooth to restore strength and function. Thanks to advances in technology, crowns mimic the shape of real teeth and can be colour-matched to suit your smile.
What is a bridge?
A bridge consists of two anchoring crowns joined in the middle by a pontic (a fake tooth or section of teeth).
A bridge is used to replace missing teeth, restore chewing function to the bite, and create an even smile.
Bridges are extremely durable and made to look as natural as possible, so they can often be colour-matched to your existing teeth.
