Crowns and Bridges
A crown is a porcelain cap that is used to rebuild and strengthen a weak or broken tooth. Crowns can also be used to improve your smile by changing the shape and color of your existing teeth.
A bridge is a solution for a missing tooth or teeth. Dental bridges bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. The crown replacing the missing tooth is joined to crowns made to fit over the adjacent teeth. In this way, the bridge, made up of three crowns is supported by the teeth either side of the gap. Sometimes more than one missing tooth can be replaced in this way.
