Crowns & Bridges

Crowns

Crowns, sometimes known as 'caps', are restorations that provide full-coverage protection of a tooth.  As a result, crowns restore the integrity, maintain the function and can be used to enhance a smile.

If a tooth is too heavily filled, it can become severely weak and susceptible to suddenly breaking - something all too familiar that happens during the weekend or on public holidays.

Bridges

As its name suggests, bridges are used to replace teeth which are missing or have been extracted - 'bridging the gap'.  They are excellent solutions which do not require removal to clean after a meal or taking out when we go to sleep at night.

Throw away those dentures!  Bridges provide an aesthetic fixed replacement, by connecting two or more crowns on adjacent teeth, which are used as natural anchors.
