Dental crowns are restorations that protect damaged, cracked, discoloured or broken teeth. The crown is sometimes called a cap because it covers the entire outer surface of the tooth.
We may use crowns also to improve the appearance because of malaligned teeth or broken teeth.

 

Also root canal treated teeth may need a crown to protect it from breakdown. It may help to hold a bridge or denture firmly in place.

Bridges


A bridge is a restoration designed to replace a missing tooth or more. It can be made of metal covered by porcelain or dental gold covered by porcelain or just porcelain depending on the cost and quality needed.

It is good to replace missing teeth to prevent the teeth next to the gap not to lean into the gap as this alters way the upper and lower teeth bite together. Food can get caught in these gaps causing decay and gum disease. Further for your appearance and a better smile.
