Dental crowns are restorations that protect, strengthen, reshape or restructure damaged teeth. Dental crowns restore full functionality and improve the appearance of your teeth, leaving your teeth healthy and strong.
Crowns can be made from metal, porcelain or a combination of both. Both durable materials, porcelain crowns are appropriate for front, visible teeth as they are made to match the colour of your natural teeth, while metal crowns may be recommended for back teeth.
Dental crowns are custom-made to match the colour and shape of your teeth. This treatment generally takes more than one visit to complete.
Dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth and restore functionality in your speech, bite and ability to chew. They can also help maintain the appropriate shape of your face and prevent other teeth from shifting (caused by gaps of missing teeth).
Dental bridges are cemented in the gaps and anchored against the neighbouring teeth for support. They are a durable and lasting treatment.
Dental bridges are custom-made for your teeth and generally take more than one appointment to complete.
