Crowns and Bridges
Crowns and Bridges area 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 porcelain or metal. The existing tooth is prepared and shaped then the Crown is placed over the top. This gives the crown 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. Dental bridges are a fantastic option to replace one, two or even more teeth next to each other. Unlike an implant, which is free standing, Bridges are attached to the teeth on either side of the gap.
To discuss the options for your individual case or to learn more about which option is best for you, call Dentistry On King and make an appointment.
