Bridges and Crowns

A great looking dental solution for replacing missing teeth

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.

The benefits of having crowns and bridges by Today’s Dentistry in Brisbane:

  • Gives you a long lasting, reliable solution compared to dentures
  • More affordable than dental implants
  • You can chew steak again!
