Bridges & Crowns
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap is used to repair damaged teeth by regaining
the tooth's shape, size, and appearance. It is also an efficient way to enhance the
tooth's strength. To have a dental crown fitted, it is typically required that a
significant portion of the tooth has been lost. By placing the crown, a tooth can
function normally again.
A bridge is a special case where a missing tooth can be replaced by fixing it to one or
more adjacent teeth.
In the long term, metal crowns are the solution if you’re looking for rescue. This is
because the gold crowns are worn and used the most, as well as bond well with the
tooth. These are strong enough to withstand high levels of chewing force and biting.
Due to their durability, they last longer and are not easily worn down.
If you are concerned about the appearance but still want metal crowns, these are
the best options. Since the teeth are made of metal and porcelain, the inside and
outside of the teeth have matching metal and porcelain, giving the dual advantage of
metal strength and porcelain colour match.
Ceramic crowns are an excellent option for people who don't want to have metal
inserted inside their mouths, but want the strength to match metal crowns. While it
is powerful, it blends into your teeth, giving you the illusion that it is not even there.
