Crowns are a great option for replacing lost tooth structure and providing tooth support. Crowns are most commonly used for teeth that are:
A crown acts as a helmet on a tooth by giving it extra strength and durability. This can help prevent a significant break in an already compromised tooth. Crowns come in various types of materials, including gold, silver, ceramic and zirconia. Crowns are also commonly used for aesthetic and restorative reasons.
A bridge is an extension of a crown, creating an artificial “bridge” between two or more teeth that have a missing tooth in between them. The bridge is a fixed option that will represent the natural tooth structure and colour and create a realistic and durable replacement of the missing tooth.
A bridge is a great option in patients, that cannot have implants, or wish to avoid a surgical procedure.
