What are crowns and bridges?
A crown is a hardwearing dental cap which restores a tooth’s shape and protects your own natural tooth below. The ceramic material of a crown strengthens your tooth and gives your smile a beautifully natural look.
Dental bridges replace a missing tooth or teeth by placing a ceramic tooth in a gap that is held in place by crowns on the surrounding teeth. Crowns and bridges are an excellent alternative to dentures that give you a strong and natural looking smile.
Crowns and bridges can be used to:
- Replace missing teeth and strengthen remaining teeth
- Dramatically improve the appearance of decayed, worn and broken teeth
Why have crowns or bridges?
If you have lost or are missing a tooth and have a large gap, then your jaw will continue to shrink and weaken until the gap is filled. Bridgework (also known as fixed bridges) is an excellent non-removable way to stop this continuing damage and give you the closest result to having your own natural teeth back.
