Dental Crowns & Bridges
A very successful method in counteracting the affects of tooth loss are Crowns and Bridges.
Crowns are utilized to recapture the aesthetic appearance of a tooth. They may also be enforced to strengthen and restore a warn-down, cracked or broken tooth. Crowns are fitted directly over your existing tooth structure and are made of porcelain. The porcelain Crown reflects and refracts light to the same degree as a natural tooth and therefore is virtually indistinguishable in appearance. Crowns may be suggested to support the application of a dental Bridge.
Bridges are utilized after a tooth is lost.
This form of restoration covers the place where one or more tooth/teeth are lost from the dental arch. Bridges are essentially a false tooth implemented to fill the area.
Crowns are then fitted on either side of the Bridge work; giving extra support to the new tooth. Bridges are a permanent solution and cannot be removed from the mouth. Also created out of Porcelain, bridges appear no different to a natural tooth.
