Crowns & Bridges
A crown is a cap that covers the entire tooth to restore shape, size, function and improve the appearance of your teeth. It strengthens the tooth and prevents further damage.
The dentist will advise on the best choice of material for the tooth, taking into consideration the strength, longevity, and cosmetic requirement of each individual case.
If you do have an allergic response to any material, it is important to mention this to your dentist.
Cracks in teeth can be caused by long-term repeated pressures from chewing, teeth clenching or grinding, or even traumatic episodes such as falls. Cracks are also more likely when a tooth has been previously filled.
Protection of cracks are possible with a crown, as it holds all sides of a tooth inwards, preventing a small crack from getting larger and deeper.
In suitable cases, a bridge provides long-lasting strength and good cosmetic results.
The selection of material is based on the individual case and patient requirements.
Our dentists conduct thorough examinations with relevant imaging, then discuss with you the various options of replacing missing teeth, along with the pros & cons of each option.
