Dental crowns & bridges

Dental crowns

A crown is like a cap or cup that sits over your existing tooth. Crowns look, feel like natural teeth and are usually made of ceramic or zircon oxide. They hold the tooth together and strengthen the tooth to prevent fracture.

A dentist will recommend dental crowing if you have the following conditions:

  • If you have yellow or discoloured teeth;
  • If you have loose, cracked or chipped tooth;
  • Over teeth that have been weakened by large cavities or restorations;
  • If you have undergone a root canal. If you have a large dental filling, you may need a dental crown to preserve your major tooth.
  • If you lost your teeth to a periodontal disease or a traumatic injury. Crown with dental implants are an ideal solution.
  • If you grind your teeth, unable to chew food comfortably or if your bite is not aligned properly.

Dental Bridges

A bridge is a prosthetic device that replaces a tooth that’s entirely missing. It’s composed of a pontic (the artificial tooth) that’s attached to one or two crowns on either side, and literally “bridges” the gap left in your smile left by a missing tooth.
