Crowns and Bridges are a great way of improving the strength and function of your existing teeth.
A Crown (commonly called a "cap") is a precisely made restoration usually made from ceramic or metal. The existing tooth is prepared and shaped then the Crown is placed over the top. This gives the tooth strength, durability and a great appearance. Crowns are often used to strengthen weak teeth or teeth with very large fillings but can also be used to improve the appearance of a tooth by changing the colour, position or shape.
A Bridge is similar to a Crown but used to replace missing teeth. Bridges are a fantastic option to replace one, two or even more teeth next to each other. Unlike an Implant, which is free-standing, a Bridge is attached to the teeth on either side.
