Crowns and Bridges

A crown is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth. It is also known as a “cap”.

Crowns are an ideal restoration for teeth that have been broken down by decay, have very large fillings or root treated teeth. They can be made from porcelain, ceramic or gold or a combination of materials. The cost of the crowns will vary depending on the type of crown and the material used. Your dentist will explain the various options and costs and treatment plan estimate will be provided prior to all treatment.

A bridge is used to restore gaps between your teeth. They are made up from more than one crown being joined together, in order to close the gap caused by a missing tooth, between two supporting teeth. There are many types of bridges which will be discussed by your dentist.
