TOOTH REPLACEMENT

CROWN & BRIDGE

Crowns and bridges are usually made of porcelain and metal alloy, used to match the colour of your natural teeth. A crown can be used to replace a broken tooth, a tooth that has had root canal treatment and requires strength, have large existing fillings that are breaking down or teeth that are cracked or worn due to age and wear and tear.0 A crown fits over the prepared existing tooth. A crown is often the best way to save a tooth and strengthening it for years more use.

A bridge can replace one or more missing teeth and is exactly what it sounds like. It consists of an artificial tooth/ or teeth which is anchored to the adjacent natural teeth. Both crown and bridge appointments are done over a series of visits and if this is the treatment you require, lots of advice will be given.
